How To Cut Your Wedding Cost In Half
A wedding is supposed to be a once in a lifetime event. It comes with so much frenzy, happiness, and sad to say waste, which can be managed if planned with a lot of calmness and a sense of reality.
The following tips will help you know how to save money on a wedding or how to plan a wedding on a low budget.
1. Be Smart With Your Menu
You don’t have to cook too many meals. Just stick to making the favorite meal of your invitees. Also overfeeding must be reduced to its barest minimum which brings us to the next step.
2. Have The Specific Number Of Guests
This will help you plan for the exact number of guests you are expecting.
3. Use A Multipurpose Venue
To avoid duplicating costs, use the same venue for the wedding ceremony and reception.
4. Use Your Old Pieces Of Jewelry Or Borrow From Your Close Relatives
Borrow or use one of what you have. That is, those that have not been overused.
5. Do Not Consider The Peak Season
When planning, don’t consider seasons like the Christmas holiday, thanksgiving, and its likes. This helps to reduce the number of people that will be available and also saves costs.
6. Specific Photographing
Focus your photo shooting on what is important. Avoid snapping unnecessary pictures as this will only increase the cost of your wedding.
7. Seek Out An Upcoming Photographer
This photographer is young and less known by the people with this, you can make a bargain that helps you save more.
8. Plan A Well Defined Budget
This will help you cut off unwanted expenses and plan your wedding according to the cost you have budgeted for it.
9. Do Not Feel Pressurized To Add Other Social Activities
If you are trying to manage the available fund you have, don’t feel obligated to call for an additional event like a bachelor’s party or an after wedding party.
10. It’s About You
Determine the kind of wedding that you want to have based on who you are and what’s going on around you.
11. Discuss Your Budget
Learn to talk openly about the plans you have for your wedding when you are with those who are involved. Also, tell them to cut off unnecessary expenditures.
12. Be Involved
Do not pay for all the services you require at your wedding. You can delegate some duties to capable hands around you who are willing to offer you the same services for free. Also, you and your partner can save costs by doing the things you both feel you can handle easily.
How To Save Money Fast For A Wedding
1. Be Modest In Your Spending
Do not spend so much on things that after the wedding will end up in the trash bin. Rather spend money on things that will still be relevant to you long after the wedding.
2. Work Out The Cost
Set up a budget and learn to stick to it to avoid, going out of control and getting into debts.
3. Save For The Period
Work out how much, you need to save monthly or weekly based on the budget you have made. If you can start your planning years to the wedding, do so, because it will help you save more and you will feel less pressured.
A wedding ceremony is a lifetime event that leaves a lasting impression on both the guest and the couple. Never go out of your budget to please anyone, but instead plan within your budget to please yourself because you are the one that matters here and is even being celebrated and not your guests.
