10 Ways to Save Money on your Wedding

At Lure, Abell Point Marina we are fortunate to be surrounded by a beautiful award winning marina and extraordinary views.  Lure itself is a contemporary space with lovely decor and furnishings.  The selling point for our couples is you need very little in terms of flowers and additional wedding themed decoration that can be costly.  In addition to choosing a magnificient venue – here are 10 other ways you can save money on your wedding.

  1. Host your ceremony and reception at the same venue or at two places within walking distance of each other. You’ll save by eliminating the need for transportation.
  2. Ask for larger tables so you require less linen and centrepieces.
  3. Use more greenery than flowers.
  4. Offer beer, wine and a signature cocktail rather than a full bar.
  5. Skip the champagne toast.
  6. Order a smaller tiered cake and supplement it for a larger sheet cake for dessert service.
  7. Have favors double as name cards or have one favor per couple.
  8. Email your save-the-dates.
  9. Make your own menu cards.
  10. Hire a band or DJ that can do both the ceremony and reception.

Happy Planning!
