So now you have a few wedding venue ideas to get you started, here is some inside knowledge to help you get the most bang for your buck:
If you really want to find a cheap wedding venue then don’t get married on a Saturday in the height of summer. Wedding venues often fluctuate in price at different times of year and certain days of the week, due to demand, so ask the venue manager if there are cheaper times to book your wedding.
If you want to have beautiful wedding photographs then don’t chase the sun, spend a little bit more on a great photographer!
With a little creativity, a non-purpose wedding venue, such as a blank canvas warehouse or abandoned church can become a spectacular option for your wedding.
Take the Asylum wedding venue for example; an unconventional space with an artistic touch can quickly become one of the most sought after wedding venues in town!
First off the bat, venues (very) regularly have special offers, so ask them if they have any on when you first call. If you are feeling sneaky tell them that you saw their special offer online but can’t remember where, so they don’t think you are a chancer!
When negotiating, it is often easier to add value than reduce cost. Rather than fight for a small discount it may be worth focusing on a big add-on, such as extra food or drink. Two other ways to bring the cost down here is to a) offer to pay upfront to reduce the cost, although not an option for all, and b) get an all-inclusive package, which really cut the costs.
Find out if the venue will allow you to bring your own booze and what the costs are if you do. You could save a fair bit here, so keep this in mine when you are venue hunting! On the booze front, also remember that guests are generally happy to pay their way to an extent. Many wedding couples will supply wine and beer during the meal and then have a cash bar that guests can use aside from that.
Now that you know these tips and tricks, consider approaching your ideal wedding venues (you can find a selection of the best wedding venues in London right here!) and see if you can make them cheap wedding venues yourself!
We hope these tips to find cheap wedding venues helps you and wish you all the best. Always remember what is important to you and prioritise where you spend you money.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
