Secret Sneaky Ways To Save Money As A Wedding Guest

Refinery29

Natalie Gontcharova

A couple of years back, I flew to Paris for the wedding of a dear friend. I spent untold amounts on plane tickets, staying in a little boutique hotel in the Marais, and all the obligatory gallivanting, eating, and drinking this type of trip inspires. We danced until 7 a.m. and watched the sunrise over the Seine. Emotionally, it was extremely worth it; financially, not so much. A freelancer at the time, I came home to a bright-red negative number in my bank account and immediately started hustling for gigs, any gigs.

Why am I telling this story? Because I’ve since learned that weddings — even ones where you have to fly to Paris — don’t have to be a financial burden on the guest. There’s an oft-cited survey from The Knot that found guests spending an average of $118 on a gift, $321 on travel, $322 on accommodations, and $81 on attire, with a grand total of over $800 spent per guest on each occasion. If you analyze these costs, you’ll find many avoidable expenses. Continue reading

In our Ask the Experts series, New York Weddings gets tips and advice from professionals in disciplines from dress design to elopement planning

Shan-Lyn Ma

CEO and founder of Zola

Zola started as an online registry, but you added some new services this year. Why the expansion?

We noticed people were using six to eight different apps for wedding-planning tasks; we wanted to put them all in one place so you just need one service. We created over 30 wedding website templates that couples can choose from, a guest-list management tool where you can keep track of RSVPs and people’s addresses, and a customizable to-do checklist where you answer a few questions about yourself and then we generate a list of what you need to get done and when.

How To Plan A Wedding In Six Weeks

The Cut

Alexis Cheung

Tips for pulling off a very brief engagement.

The wedding of:  Daniela Lazo-Cedré and Alfred Matérn, plus 50 guests.

Where: The Gramercy Park Hotel.

Why six weeks: “We didn’t want to linger and drive ourselves crazy with details. Plus, Alfred is from Sweden, and his visa was going to expire.”

What they did first: “We picked the date — January 7 — because it gave us time to file our marriage license but was late enough after the holidays that our families’ airfare wasn’t insane. We knew we didn’t want to do City Hall, so we looked for simple ceremonious venues next and landed on the Gramercy Hotel.”

Why the Gramercy Hotel: “We were just lucky. The terrace wasn’t booked, and they even upgraded us to the larger garden space. Plus, after considering catering and chair rentals, it didn’t cost as much time or money as other event spaces. The hotel takes care of a lot of details.”

Who came in handy: “We took up a lot of offers from family and friends who wanted to help. My mom constantly followed up with the hotel and scouted our photographer; my sister found my velvet pumps from Jimmy Choo; my best friend is a florist and event planner and did the arrangements. I wanted some kind of white, aromatic flower, like gardenias or jasmine, but they’re so expensive. She helped me pick a mixture of lilies and green foliage, which is actually really inexpensive. Alfred made a wedding playlist, but his friend also sang for the ceremony.”

How they invited guests: “Until two weeks before, it was a word-of-mouth wedding. We told everyone the date and updated them sporadically; then, once we secured the venue, we sent a Paperless Post.”

How she found her dress“My mom found a minimalist silk dress by Halston online. I was working late, so my sister, who is a similar size, tried it on in their shop on Greene Street. She knew it was the one but set aside other options just in case.” Continue reading
