  1. You can often save a bundle simply by getting married during a less popular time period! Weddings that fall on a Saturday–either during the afternoon or at night– quite frequently are more expensive than weddings on any other day. For an alternative time that’s often convenient for your guests, consider a Sunday afternoon wedding. Great post!
