As we continue to grow we are always seeing Airtasker used for different outsourcing purposes. One that keeps popping up is weddings.

Why? Weddings are one of the most expensive life events that you’ll experience and people are looking to decrease the credit card bill that often accompany weddings these days.

There are some costs that you simply can’t save on such as venue (unless you are open to a Friday or Sunday wedding) but for invitations, flowers or the wedding cake there are costs that can be dramatically reduced with Airtasker.

Let’s take a look at some of the wedding tasks that you can get done on Airtasker:

Wedding Venue Research

It can be time consuming to look up wedding venues, catering send emails for price packages and organise this information in a easy to read spreadsheet. Getting an Airtasker to take care of the initial wedding planning can make it a less daunting task.

Videographer & Video Editing

A wedding photographer is expensive enough so sometimes it doesn’t make sense to hire a videographer as well. However hiring an Airtasker to capture all special moments that photos can’t, such as speeches,

Photography

With wedding photography climbing into the thousands of dollars, so if it’s not something that you are overly picky you can save plenty here.

Wedding Booklets

For your ceremony you’ll need a outline of the proceedings in a booklet, particularly if it’s a church wedding, for people to follow along with the ceremony. This can be a big surprise cost at about $7+ a booklet. .

Drivers and Transport

It’s ridiculous to hire wedding cars if they aren’t really needed, for example to drop off groomsmen or shuttle people in-between locations. So that you don’t inconvenience your guests, pick a reliable Airtasker who is happy to help.

Wedding Cake

There are lots of baking tasks on Airtasker, so it’s not surprising that we’ve even had a wedding cake made by one of our baking superstars. It can be at least half the price of more traditional bakeries for your typical 3-tiered cake.

But maybe you don’t need the whole cake made, just some personalised Simpsons figurines on top of the cake…

    You cannot cut costs on wedding photographers and videographers on airtasker! I chose airtasker for my wedding and although there are professionals on this site that you could hire its next to impossible to find them because airtasker does not allow them to post links to their portfolios or websites. I ended up choosing the wrong person for my wedding. Until airtasker allows free communication avoid using the site. Should have used gumtree!

  2. I would agree, just based on selecting a tradesmen to do a job in a short window of opportunity , near impossible to take the next step, and I dont’ want other respondents to be able to read ‘further question’ about their response , not fair ; this may work better for some worker s , but not at all for the requester.
