Modern Dallas Wedding Venue
Weddings can be expensive…from the venue, to the flowers, to providing dinner for each of your guests. Things can get pricey very quickly! Empire Room, a modern Dallas wedding venue, has a few smart ideas for saving money on your big day.
- Choose an off-season date. One way to save is choosing an off-season wedding date, usually in late winter or early spring. Temperatures might be a bit on the chilly side, but if you have a beautiful indoor venue, no one will be bothered! Choosing a date during an off-season might allow you to book that venue you’ve had your eyes on for months. Another helpful tip is avoiding a Saturday wedding. Yes, Saturday seems like a great day for a wedding. But, you could actually save thousands of dollars by having your wedding on a Friday instead! And with that, you have a full weekend to continue celebrating with friends in family on Saturday and Sunday.
- Save on flowers. Another area to save money on your wedding day is with your flowers. Flowers can be more expensive than you might think. Many brides who are looking to save money are choosing to use greenery instead of florals. Greenery is not only less expensive, but it’s also very popular right now! Using eucalyptus or fern leaves can be just as beautiful as a big bouquet of colorful flowers. It’s also a bit more neutral, allowing you to add colorful details elsewhere on your special day. Using local and in-season flowers is also a great way to save. This cuts transportation costs and also ensures that your flowers will be extra fresh!
- Limit your bar. In addition to savings with things like flowers, you can also save in other areas. One idea that become quite popular and cost-efficient at this modern Dallas wedding venue is limiting your bar. Instead of having a full bar with endless options, choose to serve only beer, wine, and a specialty cocktail. This still gives your guests options, but it’ll save you some money in the end!
- Keep your cake small and simple. Lastly, you can save on your cake. Go with a smaller cake for you and your groom. Provide a more affordable sheet cake or dessert bar for your guests. In addition, keep the embellishments on your cake simple. They more extravagant the cake, the more expensive it will be! There’s nothing wrong with classic, simple cake for your special day.
