Not all dream weddings are expensive. You can turn your dream wedding into reality without hurting your pocket too much. Here are some tips and tricks that can help you save costs without sacrificing elegance and style.
ideal that you have a separate bank account for your wedding fund. This will not only prevent you from using your allocated money for something that is not wedding-related, it can also make tracking expenses a lot easier.
Consider trimming your guest list. As much as you want to invite all your friends and relatives, it would mean more cost for you. It’s better to keep things intimate and invite only those who are dearest and closest to you and your husband-to-be.
No wedding is ever complete without flowers. However, did you know that your blooms usually take a huge chunk from your wedding budget? To help you save cost, go for flowers that are in season and opt for the ones that are locally grown rather than ordering kinds from somewhere else. Aside from that, try looking into other options. For instance, have you ever consider paper flowers instead?
Skip the open bar. What you can do is talk to your bartender and have a signature cocktail made especially for the occasion. Not only will this be a great touch to your wedding, it’s also a lot cheaper. You can also buy kegs of beer to liven up the wedding party.
Forget about hiring a DJ. Make your mix instead. Thanks to the internet and technology, you can now create your own wedding playlist without having to spend a good amount of money.
Stop for a minute and think. Do you really need a 6-layer wedding cake? Probably not. Instead of going for some really big, fancy cake, just go for two tiers. If you want to get really creative when it comes to confectionary, try some alternatives. Maybe a bunch of cupcakes?
Don’t be shy to ask for discounts! There are a lot of suppliers who are willing to give you a bargain if you ask.
