Wedding of Your Dreams on a Budget

If you are on a budget, you can still have a dream wedding if you follows some basic steps. You should start with planning your wedding and upfront establish a budget that works for all involved. You will find that you can plan a non-traditional wedding that not only cuts costs, is a lot of fun and easy to do. You can also opt for a smaller wedding that can allow you more flexibility in terms of costs. You can also make wedding crafts that are unique and inexpensive to add to the professional setups. With these ideas in mind, let’s first look at the non-traditional wedding.

Many couples have chosen the beach as a low-cost venue to have their wedding. If you go this route, you only need to worry about paying the clergy, and be prepared to offer a reception that takes place either in a nearby restaurant or hall that is near where you marry. This is a fun, more casual way to get married that is wonderful, intimate and low costs. Remember, that your wedding day should be the day of you and your future-husband’s dreams and it shouldn’t all be about money. People are coming to help you celebrate your love for each other, and coming to the beach is one way to do it.

If non-traditional is not your bag, you may opt for a smaller, more intimate affair. While you may want to invite every family member from around the world and every friend you’ve made since grammar school, your budget will say otherwise. You can invite as many people as you can afford, and as a result, invite everyone to the church ceremony, but only invite select people to the reception. In this way, you can save money, and everyone can see you tie the knot.

Making wedding crafts and decorations is another fun way you can reduce wedding costs. Instead of paying for expensive centerpieces, you can go to the craft store, engage your creativity and make your own with the help of your bridesmaids and other interested parties. You can find deals on wedding runners, flowers in bulk that you can set up and make favors that are personalized and individually made rather than spending for the traditional book of matches that used to be the norm.
