Slater Menswear in Gloucestershire offers advice for newly engaged couples

Men's suits for weddings Jonny Rose is the marketing manager at Slater Menswear with a store in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Amid the cost of living crisis, Jonny has revealed some easy ways that newly engaged couples can keep their wedding expenses low while still enjoying an elegant and lavish venue. He tells us, "While the idea of inviting everyone you know to your wedding seems like tradition, this can end up costing you more so limit your guest list. Stick to a set amount of people that you want to invite, for example, 40 to begin with, and make sure that all the important people are accounted for. By only keeping it close family members and friends, you'll be saving thousands of pounds in the long run."

He adds, Although selecting wedding invites that are adorned with your name and pretty details can be a special keepsake from your big day, it can also be extremely costly. From postage stamps to matching envelopes, the price can quickly add up. Instead of opting for the traditional, evites can be personalised for as little as 20p per invite. Essentially, an e-invitation is an electronic invitation that's sent to your invitees via email and can be a fun introduction to your wedding. You're able to pick your design from a range of templates as well as add images and all the details of your big day."

Finally, Jonny suggests, "If you're looking to save money, getting married later in the day means that you'll only have to serve one meal as opposed to two. You can also forgo the traditional wedding breakfast that's usually served the day after the event. Many venues allow for external catering and buffet-style food to be served at their location. Although the idea of serving a meal is more elegant, a buffet-style feast means that people can come and go as they please. You can set the tables up as one for starters and soups, another for mains and one for desserts. If you're looking to add a special, personalised touch, you can also opt for themed tables with your favourite food."
