Bartering While Planning Your Wedding – Reduce Your Wedding Budget

  |   Wedding Planning Ideas

While planning your wedding, brides quickly realize that everything is more expensive than they ever thought.  When you are budgeting for your wedding, there are ways to keep costs in check.  Be a savvy wedding shopper and research on the internet.  Maybe you will find a blow-out sales on that wedding favor you love.  Maybe you can find a discount coupon for your limo.  There is another way to save on your wedding budget – why not barter?

Bartering is the trading of goods or services – reducing your out of pocket costs.  Bartering does not have to be a 1 for 1 trade.  Maybe the item you have to offer is worth less than the service that you are bartering for – then a simple negotiation and calculation will allow you to arrive a the new out of pocket cost.

Maybe you have a time share in Florida that your florist is interested in.  Your soon to be father-in-law might be a skilled carpenter who is will to trade a few hours of his time for a discount on your wedding cake.   Think about your resources and discuss with your close relatives – they might feel honored to chip in and help you out with your wedding budget.
