It's almost here, you're favorite day of the year...TAX DAY!!
Wouldn't it be cool if you could write it off such a large purchase? Oh wait, you can, and I am going to tell you how!
Now if you haven't already planned your wedding, then you have some extra time to make sure your wedding is tax deductible. And if your wedding is already planned or has already happened, well you're in luck. Whether you're a bride-to-be, got married last month, or married 27 years ago, I have a chance for anyone to write off their wedding. But you have to read to the end to find out how ;)
Talk to your church about their site fee. Some will allow you to make a donation in lieu of the ceremony site fee and in this case, your donation is tax deductible! And it'll make you feel good too :)
The Reception Venue
Receptions at national parks, historical sites, or museums are often tax deductible so make sure to check with your venue for details!
Are you ever going to use your linens again? Or did you purchase any other decor items that are just going to be thrown into the recycling bin or in the back of your garage? Donate these items to a homeless shelter and put them to good use...other than dust collecting!
More and more couples are moving in together before they get married and even if not, many of us already have the necessary household items that are generally put on a gift registry. So instead of asking guests for gifts, ask your guests to donate to the charity of your choice! While isn't a tax write-off for you, it will be for your guests AND it will be an amazing opportunity for the two of you to make a difference!
We all know that a majority of these little trinkets are thrown into a drawer, never to be seen again. So instead of giving your guests a favor, let them know that the money that would've been used for favors was donated to a charity instead. My guess is that any guest would prefer that over a typical wedding favor :)
This isn't possible for every wedding but if you have leftover food, bring it to a homeless shelter at the end of the night so someone else can experience the delicious meal too!
You can make your wedding tax deductible RIGHT NOW!
