Tips On How To Planning A Wedding On A Budget

Aug 21, 2008
Although it may seem hard to believe, weddings do not have to cost on average upwards of 25,000 dollars each but it would help account for the fact that the industry is worth an astonishing 25 billion dollars. Planning a cheap wedding when you are on a budget may seem an enormous task but it is possible even though you might not think so at this time. You just need a bit of guidance and a few tips to help you achieve the dream of your big day so here are a few suggestions with tips on how to save on some of the more expensive aspects of a wedding.

Firstly, do you really need a hand-made wedding dress with beads and diamantes because this is where the big cost is and there are several options open to cutting the cost so why not opt for a second-hand wedding dress? Men do not feel uncomfortable hiring a tuxedo for the day so why should a woman feel badly about buying a quality wedding dress for a fraction of the cost or hiring one herself?

Catering for the wedding reception is going to be the largest financial outlay and with current figure suggesting that upwards of 190 people are invited to the average wedding reception this is where cheap wedding planning will create the most savings. You can reduce the number of people attending by not inviting people who are the very periphery of your life and that can include distant relatives and when it comes to the meal, instead a four course silver service, why not have a cold or hot buffet. Many people now decide to have the wedding reception in a relations house and only supply beer, wine and soft drinks for the guests.

The obvious choice is to shop around for the best rates, but consider hiring a photographer for the ceremony only and ask a family member or friend to take snap photos of the reception. Although you may not like the idea, there is no reason why you couldn't have all the wedding day photos taken by your guests and you will find yourself saving many hundreds of dollars.

You assured of saving money for your cheap wedding on things like wedding invitations and place settings for instance which can easily be produced on your home computer to a very high standard. Many people are now competent enough to produce near professional quality work juts using computer programs and a good printer and paper.

Providing you do not mind a little flower arranging, there is no reason why the flowers for the wedding cannot be purchased for a wholesaler just as florists do. Many people have friends who are very capable cooks and love to bake so why not let them bake a two or three tier cake made from sponge, or even a chocolate cake for the wedding reception. As a last cost saving measure, have one of your friends or relations who has a nice car to decorate it for the wedding day and use this instead of a costly limousine because there are many things you can spend all those savings on!
