Wedding On A Budget - A Checklist

Aug 27, 2008
You may probably know that a wedding can be something very expensive. For people who have the budget, it may not be really a problem. They can spend and get the most expensive wedding as long as they are willing to do so. However, there are also couples who do not have the budget and need to plan the wedding within a tight budget.

In fact, there are a lot of tips and guides for you to plan for your wedding under tight budget. You can easily find such tips and guides on the web. You can just type the keywords "wedding on a budget" in Google and you will get a lot of results showing you the tips to save money on your wedding.

In fact, you can download some wedding planning checklist from wedding planning websites so that you can plan your wedding effectively. However, the fact here is that the checklist you get from one single source may not be a complete one. As a result, you will need to get checklists from multiple sources and combine them into one single complete checklist.

It is very true that you will have to take care of a lot of details when you are planning for your wedding. And you will really need to create a comprehensive checklist. Yet there are some more obvious items you will need to think about. They are your wedding invitation, wedding favor, wedding cake and wedding photography. You will certainly want to save money on these items.

As a matter of fact, the best way to save money is to create everything yourself for your wedding. This of course applies to your wedding invitation. If you can create the wedding invitation yourself, it will be certain that you will be able to save quite a large amount of money. You may even consider sending emails to your guests without sending physical invitations. In this case you will be able to save even more money.

The concept of DIY can also apply to your wedding favor. If you know how to make cookies or chocolates, you may consider making some cookies and chocolates as your wedding favor. If you do not have the time to do so, you may still try to see if there are some discount items on some online wedding favor shops.

When your wedding cake is considered, it will be of course a lot cheaper if you can bake the cake yourself. Even if you do not bake, you should still consider decorating the cake yourself so that you do not need to hire a professional to do it for you. This will save you a lot of money.

You can also apply the concept of DIY to your wedding photography. Of course it will be totally impossible for you to take the photos yourself. However, you may still ask your friends to help you to take the wedding photos. Be sure that you will ask at least two friends to help you. This is because you will still get some photos in case that one of the cameras does not work.
