Your big day is approaching, and you want it to be a wedding to remember, without going broke. Well, worry not! We've got some amazing ideas to add that touch of luxury to your wedding in Atlantic Canada. Here’s our list of things that you can do to have an amazing and luxurious wedding without breaking the bank
1. Venues with Jaw-Dropping Views:
Atlantic Canada is all about those stunning natural vistas, so why not pick a venue that takes full advantage of them? Picture-perfect coastal towns, rustic barns surrounded by rolling hills, or fancy spots with ocean views. These scenic backdrops will make your wedding feel like a million bucks, without draining your bank account. You can often find community centres or outdoor spaces in smaller communities that are marketed less, but are more affordable than traditional luxury venues.
2. Picture-Perfect Photography and Videography:
This is one area we feel a bit of a splurge pays off in the long run. Capture every magical moment with the pros. If you are on a tight budget, consider having your wedding day not on a Saturday afternoon and evening and also consider having your photographer there for a few hours instead of the entire day. If you aren't comfortable with a lot of pictures, find a photographer that takes awesome impromptu or documentary style pictures instead of the traditional posed format.
3. Dazzling Décor but Dollarama (or used!)
My first advice to couples is to think outside the box for your decor. There are lots of tips online about how to make basic look bougie, but you can also pick up decorations from others' weddings for very affordably on marketplace or in wedding groups. I find in fall you get the most deals as people want to sell their stock before the winter period when there is less demand. Depending on what look you are going for, price out rentals as well - when you factor in all the time you invest in getting decorations together (or asking your friends and family to help) it may make sense to rent decorations from a professional. 4. Fun and interactive activities like an Audio Guestbooks: Now, this is where things get super cool. Instead of the usual written messages, give your guests a chance to leave personalized voice recordings. How? Rent a PartyLine audio guestbook for guests to leave you memories. After your wedding you receive heartfelt and hilarious messages you'll get! It's a unique and affordable luxury that will make your wedding day even more special.
5. Let the Good Times Roll: People rarely reflect on the decor of a party, but always remember if they have fun. Give your reception an extra dose of fun-factor with entertainment suited to your audience. Maritimers are typically a casually bunch but it all depends who is coming. If you have a lot of families attending, have activities that everyone can participate in like games, or fun activity kits for each kid that will be there. If you know your guests may be a little hesitant to be the first on the dance floor, incentivize them by offering games or prizes that get everyone up and moving!
In summary, think creatively and know your audience! If everyone is having a good time, they won't remember the details so don't feel bad for staying on a budget.
