4 tips for financing your Destination Wedding in Gatlinburg
- Save! Start putting money away early in your planning process. Maybe a long engagement will help give you more time for stashing some cash away. Think about opening a separate savings account and auto-drafting on a regular basis so you’ll have saved up money before you know it.
- Have a budget and stick to it! Sitting down with your significant other and your family to figure out how much you can afford to spend on your wedding and honeymoon can be very helpful. An all-inclusive venue can really help with sticking to a budget since all your bases are covered. Not having to contract with individual DJs, bakers, florists, photographers and the like can not only save you money but cut down on your stress level.
- Go on the road. Having your wedding at a destination wedding venue can not only be a great adventure but also save you money! According to com the average price for a wedding in the United States is $26,444, but an all-inclusive wedding venue in Gatlinburg might have packages where they take care of all the details and you come out better off in the long run. Your family and friends can combine a mountain vacation with your wedding ceremony and have the best of both worlds.
- Get a little help from your friends. With the cost of weddings these days it’s not unheard of for family and friends to chip in on the cost of your wedding or honeymoon. They could make that a wedding gift and can even order gift certificates for such services or extras like photographs or a photo album.
