4 Affordable Wedding Trends We Love

Are you trying to save money on your wedding day, but aren’t sure where to cut costs? Scrap the traditional 300-guest reception and consider these four affordable wedding trends instead!


There is nothing more romantic than a private elopement. Rather than spending thousands on a banquet hall, catering, and open bar, put that money to good use and fly somewhere exotic instead. Say your vows on top of a mountain or on a pristine beach and still save money - that’s a win in our book!

Get Married at the Courthouse

Celebs like Matt Damon, Jessica Alba, and Kristen Bell all said their vows in a courthouse. These weddings are always in style because they’re ultra-simple. You can still get dressed up and invite a few guests, but the focus is solely on the ceremony without the usual distractions like giant bridal parties, over-the-top floral arrangements, and all the other non-essentials that most weddings require. To make the day extra-special, host a laid-back lunch with your family and friends after you say “I do.”

Sunday Brunch

If you want a larger guest list without the high price tag that comes with traditional weddings, consider throwing a Sunday brunch. Venues often offer discounts on Sunday events and alcohol consumption by guests will go down significantly. You can also skip the DJ and dance party, wear a more casual dress, and opt for more low-key decor as well. 

Backyard BBQ

Backyard BBQs are a great way to throw a Saturday evening reception on a budget. Get married surrounded by the flowers in your garden and ask guests to bring a side dish to share instead of a wedding gift. Just remember to have a plan in case of bad weather, like a tent rental or enough room to move the party indoors.
