3 Budget Tips for Saving Money on Wedding Catering


Wedding planning can be stressful, especially when you're on a tight budget. There are so many elements to take care of--including the dress, the invitations, the music, and the catering--that each should be carefully managed to stay within a comfortable cost range. Here we tell you 2 tips that can help you choose cost-effective catering.

RSVPs to Pinpoint Guest Numbers

The first order of business when deciding how much and what types of food to order is to send out invites with RSVPs. This will help you determine how much food to order so that you don't get too much. Overordering food makes for lots of yummy leftovers but will increase your initial money down.

You can also get an idea of how many people will want vegetarian and other specialty options. This way you will get the right types of food so that you don't spend more money than you must.

Order Trendy, Money-Saving Options

There are lots of catering foods that are cost-effective and yummy. When it comes to desserts, cake pops (or cake on a stick) are less expensive to create than full wedding cakes or even cupcakes. They will also be less messy and fun for kids.

Getting smaller amounts of appetizers and manageable portions will give your guests lots of foods to choose from. Remember that if you order rich foods, you won't need to order as much.
