3 Ideas for Planning a Wedding on a Budget

The average cost of hosting a wedding ceremony is $20,000, which makes weddings one of the most expensive life events most people ever have to fund in a single instance. However, this does not mean that it is impossible to plan a successful wedding if you don’t have an extra $20,000 lying around, or if you and your partner are simply unwilling to spend that much on a one-day event. Our Pittsburgh car service specialists have therefore come up with a few tips on how you can plan a great wedding on a budget.
First, consider employing the services of concierge car service such as our Pittsburgh Event Limousine Service for your wedding’s transportation needs. Employing conventional means of transportation may cost you a lot more since the average vehicle can only hold four passengers at a time, which would mean hiring more vehicles. The average limousine, on the other hand, comfortably accommodates eight passengers, which means you would need fewer vehicles, hence cutting down on transportation cost.
Besides saving you a few bucks, our staff and chauffeurs have been professionally trained and will go above and beyond to provide you with a fulfilling and luxurious experience; willing to the extra mile to give you that fairy tale experience you have always dreamed your wedding would be. Now, let’s have a look at some tips on how to plan a successful wedding on a budget.

Guest List

One of the biggest expenses of any wedding has to be the cost per head. It doesn’t occur to most people but, big weddings aren’t necessarily better than small weddings. In fact, smaller weddings may even be more intimate and fulfilling in comparison to large weddings. Do not feel pressured into inviting everyone on your contact list; trim your guest list and only invite those individuals you and your partner feel will truly add value with their presence.

Day of the Week

We don’t know if you have noticed, but most wedding ceremonies are held on Saturdays. Choosing a day other than Saturday, however, may save you some cash. Choosing an unconventional day may make it easier to negotiate prices with vendors, with the management at the wedding venue, with caterers, and so forth. Choosing a day when you are less likely to compete with other couples will significantly cut costs on almost every aspect of your wedding event. The laws of demand and supply apply here.

The Reception

Country clubs and hotels are great places to have your reception, but they are also expensive options. You could choose to have the reception at a simple location that means something to you and your partner. For example, hiring space at the park where you first met, at your parent’s farmhouse, etc. You don’t have to break the bank with a reception venue that is largely meant to impress and entertain the guests; try thinking outside the box.

From our clients:

I feel very secure to use Regency Shuttle. You make my travel less stressful and I can relax knowing I will get to my destination safely.
Service and staff have always been exceptional. Highly recommend your business to anyone who asks.
Regency always does an outstanding job! You never fail to meet the high expectations that we have for transporting our customers, or individuals from our Corporate Office.
I use Regency 5 or 6 times a year and have always found them courteous and dependable. I'm very pleased with this service.
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
Regency is my go to company for car service. I have been working with Stacey for a number of years, and I couldn't ask for a better service partner to work with. I even had to call in very early on a Sunday to cancel a reservation, and she was on it, and had it cancelled. I felt bad calling as early as I did, but she was a true professional. I recommend Regency to anyone that I know that needs car service. I'm grateful that you are always on time, and have very courteous, and friendly drivers. Your office staff is always great to work with too.
Booked a limo for my kids and their friends for prom. We got an 8 passenger stretch Lincoln town car which was very nice. The limo was clean and very new looking. The exterior was clean and no blemishes. The driver was very courteous and attentive to details. My kids told me he was an excellent driver; he opened the door for them all the time and treated them like VIP's. Regency has great service, great drivers and in my opinion the most up to date vehicles. Also the pricing is exceptionally reasonable and affordable.
