A Wedding In A Tight Budget

May 13, 2008
It is not easy to plan for a wedding if you have a relatively tight budget. You will need to find ways to save money in this case. However, planning for a wedding with a tight budget does not mean that you cannot have an elegant wedding.

In fact, there are a lot of ways to save money. Taking the wedding favor as an example, you can consider sending some DIY favors to your guests. It will save you a lot of money. If you can bake, you can bake some mini cakes yourself and they will be perfect wedding favors. As a matter of fact this can be a lot more meaningful than purchasing some really expensive favors. At the end of the day you are making the wedding favor yourself and your effort cannot be replaced by an expensive item.

Again, if you know how to bake, you can bake the wedding cake yourself and this also helps you to save money. If you can afford the time to learn, you can try to take some courses on baking so that you can make the cake yourself. It will certainly be an impressive cake if you can bake it on your own.

You can save money by printing the invitations yourself. As a matter of fact, you will have more freedom on the designs of the cards if you are going to print yourself. You may even personalize the cards in a way that every guest will receive a unique card. It will be quite impossible for you to do so if you are ordering the invitations from some wedding vendors. Now you can see you can on one hand save money and on the other hand create something more unique and special.

Wedding photographs are something very expensive. You may not really want to hire a photographer if you have a tight budget. You can do it like this. You will ask your friends or relatives who are good at taking photos to help you. At the same time you can encourage the guests to take the photos during the reception. Tell your guest to bring along their digital cameras and ask them to take photos whenever they want to.

Of course you may want to ask them to send you the photos after the wedding. It will be interesting to see the photos taken by the guests since these photos are taken from the perspectives of the guests. They are something wedding photographers can never capture!
