Finding an inexpensive wedding venue in New York can be nearly impossible. But, wedcheaper.com has taken care of all of the work for budget strapped brides.
Wedcheaper.com provides a comprehensive listing of truly inexpensive wedding reception sites with and without catering. And unlike some other sites, you don’t have to leave your e-mail address to find out the prices.
Leila Morris of wedcheaper said, “Hotel receptions can be hugely expensive without even providing good food. These days, there are so many alternatives. For example, a lot of restaurants will rent the whole place to you for your wedding for much less that you would pay at a hotel. It can also be less expensive than renting a hall and hiring a separate caterer. Also, most cities have lovely and historic sites to rent out at a fraction of what you would pay to rend a hotel banquet room our country club facility."
The site also provides insider tips and product suggestions on catering, flowers, dresses, and just about any other expense that comes up. Website founder, Leila Morris said, “wedcheaper.com is dedicated to helping brides and grooms plan a cheap wedding that doesn’t look or feel cheap.”
The site focuses on creative alternatives, such as buying your wedding flowers at Costo or having your reception at a restaurant that you reserve just for your event. When asked what is the single biggest way to save you’re your wedding, Morris said to limit the guest list. “With even a reasonably modest catering fee of $30 a plate, just 50 extra people will cost you $1,500. At my own wedding, we only had 75 guests and it was such a warm and fun event because so many people knew each other.” What about parents who push you to invite a lot of people? Morris said to give both sets of parents a set number of guests they can invite and ask them to pay extra if they want to go over that number.”
