Whenever budget comes up in weddings, you're most likely going to consider altering the time of year and time of day. You'll often get quotes of more than $40 savings per head if you go off-season or early in the day.

But what does this mean for the most important day of your life?? Are you willing to give up the beachside wedding for a wintery wonderland? This, of course, is something you'll have to think about. If you are able to embrace a change of theme, you could really make this budget friendly option work in your favor.

The other option, as previously mentioned, is to have a brunch wedding instead of dinner. Imagine the savings if you combined off-season with early in the day! If you're not willing to stretch that far, just consider one or the other.

Winter Wonderland:

Ok, this may not sound ideal, but I really think you could take this theme and run with it. How nice would it be to have a completely unique wedding? Everyone has been to a summer or fall wedding- dare to be different! You could make the setting really elegant with shimmering white snowflakes and silver accents. You could have a signature drink such as spiced wine, hot cocoa with bailey's/ amaretto, or spiked eggnog.

You will also be able to save a lot of money on decorations by going with poinsettas, seasonal berries and pine tree greenery. Accent tables with wintery candles for that extra touch.

Brunch:

I'm usually not impressed with the typical wedding reception dinner- a bland chicken, some green beans and a couple of roasted potatoes. The idea of getting really creative with brunch options is very exciting to me.

For a brunch themed wedding, you can really save a lot of money on food but still keep it interesting. Think fruit, muffins, sandwich station (lunchmeats, rolls, cheeses), an omelette station, pasta salad, etc. And a cake would likely be too heavy for an early reception, so you could go with warm cookies and brownies for dessert. For alcoholic beverages, you don't need to get a lot- just focus on mimosas and/or screwdrivers as your signature drink.

I know that a lot of brides dream of their wedding day from the time they are a little girl, but try to think outside of the box if you're on a tight budget. Good luck!
