Tips and Ideas for Keeping Your Wedding Expenses Down

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

You may worry you won't be able to enjoy your perfect wedding with little expense, but you can. There are myriad ways couples can have a reasonably cheap wedding without giving up what they wished for. Read this article for helpful ways you can create your fantasy wedding without being in debt. Who would have thought that a dream wedding doesn't have to be a financial nightmare?

Prioritize
Something necessary you should do in advance to planning your big day is to have a discussion with your significant other and set a limit to your budget. Then, decide what is a priority to you. If the dinner is vital and favors and bouquets are not, then you will know instantly what you'll be spending the most dollars on.

Calling all talented friends and relatives!
One way you can keep your cost down is by engaging your friends and family to help out in making your wedding a success. Do you have a friend who takes pictures as a hobby or an especially talented friend who loves giving speeches? Ask them if they'll commit to help make your wedding day special by helping with a part of it. You'll save on funds. And your wedding will be more special.

Hire a Wedding Planner
Even if initially you'll have to find money to engage a wedding professional, you'll end up saving a lot of time and money. Wedding organizers do all the detail work for you and can use an established list of vendors which can help them help you find the best flower arrangements, cake, party gifts, etc. within your given expense allowance.

DIY
Wherever you can, do-it-yourself! This includes party gifts, programs, invitations, etc. Make it fun by calling friends and family over for a DIY gathering. Have on hand the edibles and cocktails and make it memorable by getting the whole gang involved.

Food for Thought
An additional way you can save expenses and wow your invitees is by allowing yourself to be creative with the menu. Serving mini hamburgers or ice-cream cones during the reception is a unique and budget-friendly way to add something different to your big day. Add a DIY candy bar for attendees to help themselves to sweet treats in unusual containers. These can also function as your favors.

Flowers
Possibly the most expensive items you need may be your flowers. A smart way to limit expenses is by selecting flowers in season or flowers that are local to your area. If you aren't willing to be limited by the choices of the season, pick plants like orchids, roses or daisies which are available all year long.

Diva Dishes
If you're hiring a a caterer, don't rent the plates and silverware through the caterer. Instead shop at your local discount shop like Target and buy in bulk. In that way you not only have table settings for your wedding, but also for your future occasions. It lends an individual touch to your special occasion and is a sensible one too!
