A Wedding On Tight Budget

Sep 9, 2008
When you are planning for an event, you have to think about how your finance your event. You will need to create a budget for it. Of course you have to be very careful so that you can work within your budget. This is also true for your wedding. You will need to make sure that it will not be over budget.

So the question here is, how you should play your wedding if you are on a tight budget. This is in fact a shared question of a lot of brides and grooms. Even if you can afford, you will still want to make your wedding more inexpensive unless you would like to plan for an extremely luxurious wedding.

The first thing you can try to squeeze your budget is by taking care of your venue. You should make sure that you are renting a venue which will totally fit the number of guests you are going to invite. You will certainly waste some money if you rent a venue which is too big in size when comparing to the number of guests you are going to invite.

You should also consider the date and time of your wedding carefully. As a matter of fact, the rent of the venue will be higher if you are getting married on some popular days. As a result, you should avoid planning for a wedding on a really popular day.

Then it comes to your wedding cake. The best way to save money on your wedding cake is to bake the cake yourself. This is probably the cheapest way to create your wedding cake. Of course you may not have the time and technique to really do so. If this is the case, you can consider purchasing some ready made cakes instead of designing a new one. There are cake shops or bakers who may bake 20 cakes at a time. Of course these cakes will all be in the same style. However, the advantage of it is that the baker will be able to sell the cakes at a lower price.

In fact, you will be able to save money if you can plan for a smaller wedding. As a result, you may want to cut your guest list so that you will be able to invite fewer guests. As a matter of fact, you can invite your family members and closest friends only. This will help to cut your guest list and hence you will be able to save a lot of money to this end.

As for your reception, the catering services can also be an expensive part of your wedding. You may need to choose a menu such that you will be able to save money. If you have the time to do so, you may even try to prepare the food yourselves. You may think it is not really possible for you to do so. However, if you are really going to invite your family members and closest friends only, it is totally possible for you to prepare the food yourselves.
