Now than more people are celebrating the dawn of their lives together by getting married in the morning, our Event Sales Manager, Kris Phillips, would like to share her tips for saving money.
How To Save Money on Your Reception Alcohol:
Providing alcohol to your guests at a large wedding can be a large expense. By offering a mixed drink like a Mimosa or a Bloody Mary rather than a top shelf vodka or single malt Scotch, you can hold your costs down.
Since a brunch wedding and it is early in the day, people are less likely to drink heavily. This situation will hold down your costs also.
You can add coffee, punch, juices, hot cocoa, water (with mint, strawberries, or cucumber) and milk to your array of beverages.
How To Save Money on Your Reception Food:
Caters often charge less for a brunch wedding than they do for an afternoon or evening wedding because more couples wish to get married at those hours of the day. As a result, a caterer is often in the “driver’s seat” and can select the wedding for which there is the greatest profit for them. A brunch wedding is a great way to hire a top caterer when there is less competition—and a lower price.
Not only does the time of day have an impact on your price, but the day of week does as well. Saturdays are the most expensive day of the week and you can pay significantly more for the privilege of having a Saturday wedding. Conversely, having your wedding on a Thursday or Sunday can save you up to 50% or more on your catering. Yay!
You can have your breakfast cake and eat it, too.
