Never mention that it is your wedding
One of the first rules to saving money on your wedding party is to try to not mention that it is your wedding to suppliers when you are purchasing and confirming things. You can tell your buffet catering suppliers that you are having a party and get your quotation for the party without mentioning that it is a wedding party and you will find that you will get a quotation that is much less than the price you would have gotten if you had mentioned it was your wedding. You might even want to test this theory out by calling under a false name and requesting a quote for a wedding party.
It is not just the buffet catering that will be able to give you a better rate if you try this. When you are getting your hair and makeup done for your wedding, choose to go to the salon yourself without having someone come to your hotel or home. This way, you can have your hair and makeup done at the salon without mentioning that it is your wedding. You will be surprised to find that you can save up to ninety percent on hair and makeup if you do not mention that it is your wedding day.
