It’s no secret that weddings are expensive. It feels as though whenever people hear the word “wedding”, they instantly double the price. And because we only want the best for our special day, we accept it and pay much more than we need to. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
We’re here to tell you that having a beautiful, fairytale wedding is still possible even when your budget is tight. With a few simple tips and tricks, you can have the wedding you’ve always wanted without overspending.
1. Slim down Your Guest List
Only invite people that are relevant in your everyday life. Close friends and family are all that’s needed to celebrate the special occasion. Forget about everyone else’s feelings and invite only the people you really want to.
2. Host Your Wedding on a Friday or Sunday
By skipping the traditional Saturday reception, you can save a tremendous amount of money on your wedding. If your reception location is a sought-after spot, you might even be able to get married sooner. Additionally, if you book an off-season date, you’re more than likely to pay less for the venue.
3. Skip the Open Bar
If you’re afraid of offending guests because they have to pay for their own alcohol, think again. You can still offer a welcome drink and perhaps wine or champagne without breaking the budget.
4. Rent Your Wedding Gown
Wedding dresses are notoriously expensive. So if you don’t like the idea of paying for a dress that will be used once which after it will gather dust in your closet, why not consider renting your wedding dress?
