Your Perfect Wedding Made Possible with LFS

Is your big day just around the corner? We understand that planning your dream wedding can be a bit overwhelming, especially when it comes to the financial side of things. But fear not, because Lyons Financial Services is here to guide you every step of the way! 

  1. Set a Realistic Budget: Before diving into the world of wedding planning, it’s essential to set a realistic budget. Have a conversation with your partner about your big day and discuss how much you can afford to spend. We can help you to assess your current financial situation and create a budget that will allow you to have your dream day while staying on track with your financial goals.
  2. Start Early and Save Strategically: This is the key to stress-free wedding planning. The sooner you begin, the more time you’ll have to put away those savings and avoid any last-minute panicking. Consider opening a dedicated wedding savings account and set up regular deposits. 
  3. Prioritise and Make Trade-Offs: As you plan, you might find that some things are more important to you than others. That’s where prioritising comes into play. It’s okay to tweak a few things to stay within your budget, like opting for a cosy celebration or picking a date that works better for your wallet.
  4. Unlock the Magic of Discounts and Negotiations: There are huge discounts and negotiations waiting for you in the wedding world! Many vendors and venues offer deals during off-peak seasons or weekdays. Let’s grab those savings! And don’t be shy about negotiating like a pro. 
  5. Personalise Your Wedding Favours: Instead of traditional wedding favours, consider personalised gifts that reflect your and your partner’s personalities or shared interests. It could be custom-made trinkets, engraved love notes, or even a small jar of your favourite homemade jam. Guests will appreciate the thoughtfulness and cherish these keepsakes for years to come!
  6. DIY Decorations and Crafts: Get crafty and add a personal touch to your wedding decor! DIY decorations not only add charm but also help you stay within your budget. Gather your family and friends for a fun crafting session, and create unique centerpieces, photo booths, or hand-painted signs. The memories you create while crafting together will be priceless.
  7. Digital Invitations and RSVPs: Embrace technology and opt for digital wedding invitations and RSVPs. Not only is it a modern and convenient approach, but it also helps you save on paper and postage costs. You can design beautiful e-invitations and track RSVPs easily, making the planning process smoother.
  8. Cherish the Moments with a Video Guestbook: Instead of a traditional guestbook, why not have a video guestbook? Set up a designated area where guests can record heartfelt messages or share fun anecdotes. You’ll cherish these candid and heartfelt moments for years to come!
  9. Seek Professional Guidance: Planning a wedding can be a bit like juggling, but you don’t have to do it alone! Our expert financial advisors are here to be your wedding wizards, tailoring advice to your unique needs and goals.
