How to Minimize Costs When You Get Married
It is no secret that wedding preparations will get you into many expenses. Precisely because a wedding marks the start of the life of a couple, and thus this justifies the expenses they are willing to take. After budgeting for your dress, suit, cakes, venues, photographers, giveaways and so on for your wedding, you could end up with not much money for your honeymoon. It is therefore recommended that you set your wedding budget based on how much you can afford to spend. By doing this, you can clearly identify the different decisions and choices you want to happen during your wedding. You can cut some costs on important aspects of your wedding, and yet still make it very personal and special, by following some simple ways.
One of the things that play a huge part in a wedding are the flowers, because the bride carries them, they are used to decorate during the reception, and used to decorate during the ceremony of course. However, you can still cut the costs in spending for flowers. One suggestion is to buy fake flowers but choosing the kind and color based on your color motif. Another way is to pick wild flowers, especially if your motif is the boho style, and you will still get the charm and mystery of your motif. Wild fresh flowers add a personal and pretty touch in your venue, in the place where you will say your vows, and on your hand as your bouquet.
Another big costs in weddings are the invitations. Usually the costs would start in your beautiful paper, having them printed and the mailing of these to friends and relatives. You could have spend zero on invitations if you can just message it or email it, but this sounds too drastic and sad, so your alternative would be to be creative in your invitation. We love handmade invites as souveniers. Making your wedding invitation could be fun and you can express your creativity like putting both of your pictures, accentuate it with unique local materials, etc. c
The wedding cake is another item on your wedding that can increase your expense. The traditional tiered wedding cake is expensive and you can lower your expense by creating another style. Others would make a dessert bar composed of different small slices or cups of cakes and guests can make their own mix.
Weddings should be made less stressful especially for the couple, less wasteful, and not so expensive, but at the same time make the event the most memorable first step of a couple’s life together.
