How to Get People to Sponsor Your Wedding

Save

Paying for a wedding is very expensive. If you want to have a big, fancy wedding without the enormous price tag, consider finding people to sponsor your wedding. Securing sponsors can be challenging, as this is not a very common practice, but it is well worth the effort if you can save thousands of dollars on your wedding. In order to be successful at this task, you must be willing to work hard and not become discouraged too easily.

  • Approach local businesses to offer publicity in exchange for their services or product donations. Make your request in person by going into the business to speak with the manager. Instead of asking for completely free products or services, offer up the possibility of a discount. This might make them more willing to help out.

  • Write an email or letter to a national corporation's public relations office. Request sponsorship in the form of a product or cash donation. If you don't hear back from the company after a week or two, follow up. You can give them a call or send another email to check on the status of your request.

  • Offer the business a variety of different forms to display their sponsorship at your wedding. You could list their names on the back of your wedding program, place a small sign on the cake or guest book tables, place their logo on the back of your cocktail napkins, put a list of sponsors in each wedding invitation before sending them out, place business cards on the seating card table or allow them to provide a very small promotional item for each of your guests to take home with them.

  • Secure each of your sponsorships in writing after coming to a verbal agreement. If a sponsor backs out, it could cost you thousands of dollars. In order to avoid this situation, create a contract for them to sign containing the terms you agreed upon.
