3rd Plan your wedding ceremony in the afternoon, when guests after offering simple snacks or desserts instead of the whole meal. The main lunch meal and replace dinner.
4th If you are guests at the end of the feast as a thank you hand out small gifts or chocolate hampers place, reduce costs so that you create them yourself instead of buying them. If you know that will hamper such freebies you give out you do not. For guests is the biggest thank you all for your wedding invitation.
5th Try to plan the ceremony and reception in the same place. You can contact the operator to arrange a better price if you both will happen with them.
6th If you buy accessories and decorations through various e-shops, compare prices. Do you really need something from each e-shop? When you add up the cost of postage, it will be a lot more expensive than if you buy everything in one place. A really need such and such a nosegay? (Boxes, ribbons, flowers and decorative stones, candleholders, etc.)? Also, be careful when purchasing accessories and decorations from abroad. If you are not an EU country, you will have to pay duty fee for processing the customs declaration and often high traffic. So you obviously costs will increase. And if you use ebay, and nowhere is no guarantee that you will receive exactly what you ordered.
7th Compare the services of various wedding suppliers (confectioners, photographers, florists, bridal salons, ...). And if you have already chosen your supplier, but has a somewhat higher price, try to directly ask for a discount. When a discount you tell no one volunteered to be done.

13th Try to make a deal with restaurant operators, whether buffet meals will cost less than a typical serving food.
14th Also arrange with restaurants that you can make your own alcohol. It usually allow. And if you love wine, wine jars and then subsequently released pitchers certainly cheaper than in bottles and certainly by anyone offended. As far as non-alcoholic, here it is worse agreement with the operators, but if you insist that you prefer a larger package of mineral water or other soft drink or straight in pet bottles, which can subsequently spill, should you meet (if still want to have your wedding in your company). Small pints would you had come very expensive and it often happens that in these restaurants přelívají water (Mattoni, Rájec, etc.) from large pet bottles, but of course the price you will charge for třetinkovou bottle. For you unnecessarily expensive! You can also ask that you have on each table pitcher with clean tap water. It is absolutely harmless, good and nothing will happen. For this requirement, the willingness to try restaurants accede to your request. If you will treat you fairly and strive to meet, you can be sure that the feast goes well. And if you will try to tell that their tap water is good for drinking, believe that it is nonsense, otherwise they would hygiene because their business has long since closed.

19th If you will soon get married and someone from your area, make an appointment with another bride to buy wedding accessories and decorations together. Often you can get a nice quantity discounts or apart decoration at a discount each purchase.
20th Try to arrange your wedding reception in a place where you also offer a wedding night. Mostly it will be for free or for a very reasonable price. And if not, try to get a better price request.
