1. Change Your Season
Peak wedding season is May through September, plus holidays such as Valentines's Day or Christmas. If you are flexible to an off-season date, you could save thousands of dollars on your venue and other fees.
Wedding prices are never set in stone. Always ask if there is a discount or if they will lower the price. The worst that will happen is they say no, and best case you save a ton. The further you are away from the wedding, the more likely you'll be able to get them to say yes.
