San Diego Wedding on a Budget

Share Article

The average wedding budget continues to increase, many local brides struggle to save money.

Today, more than $20,000 is spent on the average wedding. For most engaged couples, that amount of money will make a large dent in the bank account. Because of the rising cost in weddings, couples are doing everything they can to cut corners and save money.

Along with the common anxiety most couples face when planning their wedding day, the growing concern of the wedding budget is causing more stress than usual. San Diego is one of the most popular places to host a wedding and there are many ways to save money on the big day, even in this popular destination.

The summer months are the most common times to have a wedding, so many couples are booking vendors during the off season, including January, February and March in order to save money. Instead of having an open bar where guests can order whatever drinks they want at the expense of the newly married couple, many couples are just serving wine, beer and one round of champagne, which cuts back on costs drastically. As most couples planning a wedding know, invitations can cost more than expected, so instead of going fancy with professional invitations, many couples are making the invitations themselves.

“You don’t have to break the bank in order to have a great, unforgettable wedding," said Anna Gamboa, owner of San Diego Wedding Insider. “Our Web site gives many examples and ideas that will help couples in San Diego save money.”

The San Diego Wedding Insider not only provides couples with a list of credible, local vendors, the site also has many sections to help couples save money, including the Get Creative section. The Web site is an online tool for brides and grooms to use while planning their wedding.
