Congratulations on your engagement! You will probably start a wedding now. As a young family you might not have a lot saved, however, a wedding is an important day in your lifes and you can’t just skip it because of financial scrutiny (unless it’s what you actually want to do). Your wedding day doesn’t have to cost you a fortune, there are a lot of ways to have an inexpensive wedding. Read the tips below and have your best wedding on a budget.
Don’t invite too many people
The cheapest way to get married is not to overload your guest list. For sure, it is an important day that you want to share with your closest friends and family members. Emphasize the word “closest”. Don’t invite your second grade soccer teammates who you have lost contact with after Elementary school. Make your wedding an intimate ceremony, by surrounding yourself with people that truly care about you.
Firstly, make a list of everyone you can think of and then cut it by 20%, then by another 20% till you have the optimal amount of wedding guests.
Ask for wedding help instead of wedding gifts.
You can save yourself a lot of money if instead of giving you wedding gifts your guests will give you wedding help. For example, you can ask your friends to be your band or to be your photographer. If you have any talented friends this will work just fine. Or you can ask them for any other meaningful contribution towards your wedding day.
Hold the ceremony at home, or outdoors.
Instead of renting a huge venture and paying hundreds to the hotel owners you can hold your meaningful ceremony at some place that means a lot for you. What do you think about one of your parents’ house? Beach? Or maybe a public park where you first met?
Having a wedding outdoors will save you a lot of money. Moreover, you will be able to take beautiful pictures with natural lighting. Keep in mind, however, that you must check out the weather in advance and eliminate any chances that your big day is ruined by the rain.
Rent your outfits instead of buying
Wait, do you really need a luxury couple thousand dollars dress hanging in your wardrobe? Or maybe you need a tuxedo in your everyday life? Highly doubt you are that kind of person, else you would have already had one. So why don’t just rent a tuxedo for you and your groomsmen or just dress up in the same style?
Go minimal with the flowers.
For sure, flowers are beautiful they will make your venture look romantic but do you really need to be all this extra? If you choose to celebrate your wedding outside you might not even need to buy flowers, they will be there growing naturally. Otherwise, keep it nice and simple- a small bouquet for the bride and a single rose for each bridesmaid will be more than enough. You also can go with fake flowers to make them last more than an evening.
Good luck with your wedding planning! Have an awesome affordable best day of your life!
