Cut costs, not corners and avoid spending a chunk of your income on getting married
The prospect of spending a sizeable chunk of your annual income on your wedding can leave you with a knot in your stomach – and it’s one that can’t be filled with food!
Unfortunately, this is the reality of what most brides and grooms are faced with. According to Bride Book, millennial couples are spending a massive 45% of their combined annual income on saying ‘I do’. This can be made up of a number of expenses, including the food. You can, however, always cut the cost of the catering without necessarily cutting corners. We have come up with some ways to do that.
Do feed people
Cutting back on food could be a huge mistake. What you should really be doing is providing more heavyset meals at a fraction of the price. Take, for instance, fish and chip van hire. This is an affordable dish that won’t break the bank, but at the same time it will more than do the trick when it comes to leaving your friends feeling like they’ve been well fed.
Do go rogue
You can think outside the box without spending every last penny on the catering. Just because you’re tightening those purse strings doesn’t mean that you can’t go slightly rogue and serve something out of the ordinary.
What about noodle bar hire? A great way to cut costs not corners. While it’s not something you traditionally see at weddings, the dishes are scrumptious nonetheless!
Do show personality
In an age where brides and grooms are desperate to show some personality, there’s no reason why you should have to go into debt over making it happen.
The right food can give a glimpse into the type of people that you and your betrothed are. Perhaps a cheesecake bar will remind your guests that you’ve both got a sweet side!
These are just a few things that you can ‘do’ so that you ‘don’t’ end up spending a massive amount of your annual income on your wedding. If you’re keen to explore more catering options be sure to get in touch with us and we will be happy to help.
