Planning a wedding will be stressful at times, especially when you need to follow a strict budget. As your wedding day approaches, your heart will no doubt be racing with excitement and anticipation. This is going to be one of the most memorable days of your life. The overall beauty and success of this event depend largely on careful planning.
What if you are on a budget but still want to have that remarkable wedding? You can have an inexpensive wedding that has all the glitz and glamour of a $75,000 wedding — without getting into debt! The following tips could help achieve just that.
- STICK TO YOUR BUDGET
Be frank about what you can realistically spend for your wedding ceremony. Stick to your budget, but be flexible as prices go up. Also, make room for unanticipated costs.
- SCHEDULE YOUR WEDDING FOR THE OFF-SEASON
Planning your wedding to take place before April or after October could potentially save you cost on venue and catering services. You are likely to get better rates by having your wedding on a weekday rather than on weekends.
- CUT DOWN ON YOUR WEDDING GUEST LIST
Fewer guests mean fewer expenses. Do not feel pressured to invite everyone on your guest list and do not allow guests to come along with other uninvited guests. This way, everyone present will be well taken care of.
- SHOP ONLINE FOR A BETTER BARGAIN
- ASK FRIENDS FOR HELP
Rather than paying for every form of service needed for the wedding day, ask reliable friends and family to assist with services like decorations and transportation. They will feel honored to contribute to your success.
