Planning a Wedding on a Budget

Sep 11, 2008
With all the different wedding services and vendors, offering lucrative and innovative ideas, it is sometimes hard to choose which one to embrace and which one to reject, considering your purse. So here are a few ideas to help you save your hard earned money, without entering into debt, when you are planning your nuptials with great pomp and luxury.

Make a list of the essentials
No wedding is exempt from budget as it is a part of the planning process. When you are planning a wedding on a budget, you must make a list of the essential services and items, the couple would need. Starting from transportation, photography, catering, and reception to bridal dress and ring, everything must be considered thoroughly when you are planning a wedding on shoestring budget.

Choose the season
Keep in mind the season for wedding while you are planning a budget friendly wedding, Consider an early spring or winter wedding as these seasons are less busier for wedding and you will find the price of the commodities much friendly than other seasons. Even it is much easier to haggle pricing when it comes to booking marriage halls, catering and other services during this season.

Choose invites
You need to think your bridal party in such a way, that it can be innovative but cost-effective. Remember, the larger the bridal party the larger the budget. Keep the wedding small, inviting those who are very close to you. It is a good idea of excluding those people, whom you have not interacted or seen in five or ten years. This way you don't have to worry about the expense of feeding some uninvited guests.

How to manage photography, entertainment and food
Without photography, a wedding seems as dull as Dodo! To frame the best moments of your fairy-tale wedding and to make it memorable, photography plays an invincible role. You must think about your friend who is into photography and has good camera knowledge. If it fails to work then think about someone or hire a professional, who can take pictures only at the ceremony at a cheaper rate.

Without entertainment, a wedding seems dull and monotonous. You need to think about the entertainment section in a tricky way when you are planning a wedding on a budget. You can have music at your wedding without surrendering thousands of dollars to a performer or a band. Instead of hiring DJ's or live bands at the party to entertain your guests, you can make a CD collection and burn your own customized CD collection at ease.

Finally, when we think of wedding, we naturally think of mouth-watering dishes. A wedding is all about checking your taste buds - right? Remember, the easiest way to a person's heart is through his stomach. Think about those fancy foods that are budget-friendly but delicious.

Therefore, planning a wedding on a budget can be just as wonderful as big fat wedding, if you follow these budget friendly wedding guidelines. This will surely help you to enjoy and celebrate the start of your new conjugal life with great pomp.
