Top 75 Money-Saving Tips for Your Wedding

Those in the know-your wedding pros, that is-give their professional cost-cutting tips.

Save on Your Ride

“Go with a limousine rather than a stretch SUV; they tend to be almost double the cost of limos,” suggests Frank Apablaza of East84 Limousine in North Bergen, New Jersey.

Most limo services charge by the hour, so fewer stops can mean a smaller bill. If you’re having one limo for yourself and your bridesmaids, ask all of the girls to meet up at a central location (usually your home or a hotel). Have the guys do the same.

There’s no rule that says you must have a limo. Ask a trusted friend to play chauffeur for you and your groom on the big day.

Consider hiring a private chauffeur to get behind the wheel of your car. This can amount to significant savings, says Dennis Carlson of WeDriveYou, a company that provides professional chauffeur service.
