Get married on campus!
What most people don’t realize is the fact that there are a lot of old universities that have the most picturesque and interesting backgrounds and this is what you should go ahead and try to look into especially when you are searching out what your possible options will turn out to be for the wedding at the end of the day. Getting married on campus will actually cost you next to nothing. If you are alumni of the school, you can even perhaps get the venue for free if you happen to talk to all of the right people while you are at it. The thing is that most of the wedding venues out there actually charge a premium when it is held out for a wedding in particular and if you have a small wedding budget to work with, the financial blow can be quite damaging.
Opting for a campus wedding is not only out of the box, it is also something that can save you an awful lot of money somewhere in the process and this is something that you should definitely look into because it will be well worth your time when it all comes down to it. Don’t limit the choices to your own university alone. Scope out all of the universities in your local area, even the ones that you didn’t graduate from because you will never know what you are going to find until you actually seek your options out. Talk to your Leeds wedding photographer about any suggestions he might have that could help you out a bit when you are looking for a place to book.
Hold your reception in a restaurant.
When you think about it, it makes perfect sense. You don’t have to worry about them setting up and bringing the plates and the rest of the cutlery along with them because you have it all in one place with the ambiance to boot. More than that, when you book a restaurant, more often than not, you don’t even have to pay for the place anymore. It is usually all consumable on the food and this is what you should be checking out one way or the other. Booking in a restaurant is a really sensible choice for you and for your partner. This also means that you will have a lot of money set aside for things like extra plates of food for your Leeds wedding photographer and the other vendors that matter the most to you and that might have a lot of impact to the overall results that you have been hoping for in the wedding.
A courthouse wedding won’t hurt, either.
They have everything mapped out and set out for you the right way and these places are usually old enough to have that historic vibe and décor that you and your Leeds wedding photographer can make the most out of. You can always hold the reception venue somewhere else.
Don’t be pressured into a sit-down dinner.
You can go for a late evening wedding and opt to serve hors d’oeuvres instead. You can also go for a brunch wedding and opt for a light breakfast table or spread instead. The point here is that a plated approach to catering is usually expensive and not the best way to go so you should consider other options.
