Have champagne taste but lack the funds to support it? No problem, here are our top three tips for hosting an elegant affair on a budget.
1. Reduce the guest list. The more people you invite, the more money you spend. There is no way around this!
2. Make a list of your priorities. If you REALLY care about hiring a certain band, cut back on other aspects of the event.
3. The food and beverage expense will be one of the larger items. Therefore, offer heavy hors d’oeuvres as opposed to a formal plated meal, or serve beer, wine and a specialty cocktail instead of a full bar.
