Though times are tough financially and weddings even more expensive than ever before, don’t let this stop you from having the wedding you’ve always dreamed of, even if it is a bit slimmer than you may have hoped for.
There’s so much that can be done to make it special and cost less, such as roping all your friends and family to dig in and work with you to create the décor for your special day, it not only saves you money, but it makes a treasured memory for you all once it’s all over.
If you’ve got friends who are fundi’s in the kitchen, grab them some help and let them make the meal truly memorable; they don’t have to stay in the kitchen during the wedding and meal, they simply have to be willing to be great delegators and supervisors!
With so many weddings having gone right ahead through lockdown and with the magic of technology, now is your time to have the real thing in person, with your loved ones.
Here are a few more basic tips to help you have a fairy tale wedding without spending all you’ve saved to start your new lives together!
Trim the guest list
This is the one day you have every right to stick to invitations sent to the people who are the most relevant in your life. If you think about it, close friends and family are all that’s really needed to make the celebration of your wedding one that is done surrounded by people who love you. After all, this is the day love reigns supreme!
Choose a Friday for your wedding
You could well save a tremendous amount of money on the venue by skipping the traditional Saturday wedding and reception, and opting for a Friday, a Sunday or any other day of the week.
If your wedding and reception location is a sought-after spot, you might even be able to get married sooner if you book an off-season date, plus, you’re more than likely to pay less for the venue into the bargain!
Skip having an open bar
With a trimmed guest list comprising of those who are closest to you and who love you, it won’t be a problem for you to request that guests have their first drink free and pay for the rest. This is simply what the coronavirus has brought us to, and if they love you they won’t mind!
Of course, you can still offer a welcome drink and perhaps wine for the table and a champagne for the toast, without breaking the budget.
