Tips for making a cheap wedding
1. Early planning
For those who are on tight budget the tip is to start preparations a year earlier. Anxiety is going to hit hard, but take some tea to keep calm.
A planned wedding in advance allows the grooms to carefully evaluate and choose every detail, in addition to thoroughly research each vendor and payment terms.
In advance it is also possible to haggle for discounts and to carry out the payments gradually, so when the big day arrives everything will already be paid for.
2. Flowers and fruits of the season
Are you getting married in the summer? Use geraniums in the decoration. Whether the wedding date falls in the spring, you can bet on gerberas, violets or sunflowers. The season flowers are much cheaper than the off-season flowers.
Enjoy and include in the party menu the fruits of the season. They can come in natural juices, drinks, desserts or giving a touch to the main course. Use the creativity to insert them in the menu. But do not overdo it, otherwise your party can look like a grape party or strawberry festival.
3. Two in One
Try to hold the ceremony and party in the same place. This significantly reduces costs, since instead of two places to decorate you will have only one. Not to mention that it is much more comfortable for the guests to go to just one place.
The place of the party is something very important to be thought of in a wedding. It is necessary to take into account the distance and the ease of access for the guests.
But one thing is for sure, an outdoor party might come out well for the bride and groom. The nature of the place already contributes (and a lot) to the decoration, not to mention that rustic and country atmosphere favors a simpler decoration.
5. Do it yourself
Head over to the "Do It Yourself" concept or the internet's famous DIY. You can easily learn how to make table settings, party favors and even a scenic cake to decorate the table.
There are thousands of ideas available on YouTube for you to check and choose the one that best fits the style you intend to give the party.
The lighting of the party is an indispensable item in the decoration. Nowadays, lamp poles and LED tapes are at their peak and give a delicate beauty to the party.
Another option is the Japanese lanterns. They look beautiful around the place, especially if it's outdoors. At the tables, opt for candles, their effect is cozy.
Creative ideas are always welcome, especially because they tend to be economical. Think of several possibilities for the same thing, from the decoration of the tables to the souvenirs that the guests take home.
A creative and original idea of souvenir is, for example, leave a Polaroid type camera at the reception and let the guests take photos and take the photo home.
It is also possible to replace the video with photos of the bride and groom with printed photos hanging on a clothesline. You save with projectors and sound equipment.
8. Food and drinks
The party buffet is something that can blow your budget. But as drinking and eating is necessary, offer your guests something simpler and less sophisticated.
One option is to have the wedding at a time other than the main meal, such as lunch and dinner. At an evening party, for example, snacks, salads and snacks can be served.
7. Self service
Set up a table where guests can serve themselves, so you do not have to hire waiters. A table for the salty ones, another for the sweets and a place to serve the drinks is enough. Ask someone in your family or a friend to keep an eye on the tables to make sure nothing is missing.
8. Only for the most close
It can be difficult, but wipe out the guest list as much as possible. The more people, the more expenses. So try to invite only the closest relatives and friends. The good thing is that the party is more intimate and welcoming, since the couple can give a greater attention to the guests.
9. Wedding dress
The wedding dress, so dreamed and desired, can also enter the list of items to be cheap. You can achieve this by renting a dress that was once worn rather than wearing a first-rent one. The stores offer all the adjustment and adaptation needed to make the dress look flawless on the bride's body. And do not worry about the models, there is a huge variety of models ready.
10. Bet on personal objects for decoration
To leave the decoration with the face of the engaged, bet on personal objects to compose the decoration of the party. Besides saving, you still add a touch of personality to the party that the guests will love. It could be a souvenir chest, a music box, or other items that are part of the bride and groom's story.
