Nov 26, 2007
There is no doubt that a wedding can be something very expensive. As a result, you may want to find different ways to save money on your wedding. You can spend the money saved on your new life after marriage. This is very important since you may really need a bit more cash after marriage. If you would like to save money on your wedding, please continue to read this article otherwise you may skip it.

The most important decision about your wedding is the date and the venues (both for reception and ceremony). Considering the reception venue, it will cost you more if you are going to choose a ball room in a luxury hotel. Of course I know most of you may want to go for this option. However, sometimes we have to sacrifice if we would like to save money. You can consider a less formal wedding and it can be sure that you can save some money. For example, you can host a beach wedding and the cost of renting the spaces will be only a fraction of that of a hotel ballroom.

If you are comfortable with the idea of a less formal wedding, you can also consider a less formal catering service. You can hire a company that offers outdoor catering service. It will be a lot cheaper than the catering service in a luxury hotel. If your friends can help you, you may even consider preparing the food yourselves so that extra amount money can be saved. Of course you have always to consider about the hygiene if you are going to prepare the food yourselves.

You should also prepare the liquor and wine yourself for your wedding reception. The wine offered by the companies which provide catering services can be a lot more expensive than what you can get from a supermarket. You should approach different shops to get the best price so that you can prepare the wine under your budget.

If you have friends who can take wedding photos for you, you can ask for their help. Wedding photography is one of the items that can cost you a lot of money. Since it will be better to have at least two photographers in your wedding, you should ask more than one friend to help. On the other hand, you may also consider hire one wedding photographer and have a friend to be your another photographer.

DIY wedding favor can also save you a lot of budget. The price from the party favor shop can be very expensive, even for a piece of chocolate. If you are going to adopt chocolate as your wedding favor, you can try to buy them from local stores which can offer you discount prices. You will then buy some packaging materials to wrap and pack them so that they can be something cheap but elegant.

You have to keep reminding yourself that cheap wedding does not necessarily mean something bad. It can still be very elegant. And the art of saving money is to keep the degree of elegant with less amount of money spent.
