How To Make a Very Special Simple Wedding
1. Planning first
Congratulations! You are engaged and have begun to plan the day you dreamed of. This is really the first stage of marriage and should be built with your feet in reality, especially when it comes to budgeting.
The most important of this phase is to define how much you can spend, already taking into account life after marriage. And after setting the budget increase, about the total amount, something around 10% to 20% to cover those last-minute expenses and that always appear to catch the most unsuspecting.
2. Schedule an off-season date
Getting married in the month of May or early spring may cost more. That's because these are the months preferred by the bride and groom. The tip is to opt for less popular dates in order to get discounts and better prices.
The tip also applies to the days of the week. Weddings on Saturday nights cost more than on a weekday or Sunday, for example.
3. Guest list
This item is a must for anyone who wants a simple and inexpensive wedding. Thinking, thinking and rethinking the guest list is something that may weigh on the bride and groom's conscience, but it's important to be done.
The fewer guests, the more economical the party will be. And yet you have the opportunity to ensure a more intimate marriage, and can give more attention to who really matters in the life of the couple.
So, put away that aunt you never see or that cousin who does not even remember the name. Invite only those who live together and truly participate in the couple's story. That way marriage will be much more enjoyable as well.
Once the budget and the list of guests have been defined, it is necessary to think about the invitations. Nowadays it is possible to distribute electronic invitations that combine very well with simpler wedding ceremonies. That is, it is not necessary to invest in a sophisticated invitation to deliver on hand. But if you prefer the more traditional mode, you can create and print the invitations yourself, saving you good money with graphics.
5. Nature as an ally
If the idea is to have a simple marriage, then nothing better than a outdoor wedding . The nature of the place of the ceremony becomes a great ally of the decoration and thus you save a lot more with arrangements and other decorative items than if you were doing the wedding in an enclosed space that would need to be fully decorated.
Another good side of outdoor weddings is that they match very well with this simple and intimate proposal. To save a buck, consider borrowing that friend's site or renting it from a buddy.
6. Wedding Style
It is not because marriage is simple that it can not have a touch of glamor, elegance and sophistication. After all, if you are already saving with so many things, it is perfectly possible to make a bigger allowance for items that will make the party more noble.
But if you decide for a rustic style wedding , modern or minimalist, better yet. These types of marriage guarantee a saving of money, without losing the charm and beauty that the occasion demands.
7. Prefer station items and local vendors
Choosing to buy station products and local suppliers is a smart, sustainable and economical alternative. Flowers, fruits and other seasonal products can be found more easily, with better quality and at a much better price when they are in the right season.
Therefore, adapt the menu and the decoration of the party to suit this item.
8. Do-It-Yourself Decoration
The "Do It Yourself" or "Do It Yourself" decoration is on the rise nowadays. And this concept can be used very successfully at wedding parties. There are many things that the bride and groom can do to save money, from the invitations - as already mentioned above - to the party favors and decorations. However, it is important to assess whether grooms will be available for this task, if not the old story of "cheap is expensive."
The buffet is undoubtedly the most expensive part of the party and you can not get away from it, after all you have to guarantee the food and drinks of the wedding. But it is possible to cheapen the cost without losing quality.
The first and most obvious tip is to research hard before closing with the company. Then evaluate each item on the menu that will be served and see if it is not possible to adapt the recipes or even serve simpler dishes.
Another option is to opt for finger foods, or changing in kids, good old snacks and snacks. The wedding hours also impact on the value of the buffet. Full meals will always be more expensive, so it may be worth getting married earlier and serving a brunch or mid-afternoon and serving such finger foods rather than dinner.
10. Get support from friends and family
Who has friends has everything. Prove that the saying is true and call friends, uncles, cousins, parents, and grandparents to help with whatever it takes. From the organization of space on the day of the party to the making of the souvenirs.
Is there anyone in the family with a soul of confectioner? Then order this person to make the cake. And you know that cousin put on manicure and pedicure? Count on her for the big day too.
This is a fun and sexy way to make the wedding even more special.
11. Ensure excitement and good times
And, last but not least, guarantee the excitement and the good moments of the party. Simple, intimate marriage has the advantage of allowing the couple to feel more comfortable and express themselves more legitimately.
At the time of the ceremony, write your own votes and also make an exciting playlist of songs. Already at the party, have a special gift that can be made by a friend or close relative.
Then just call everyone to dance to joyful songs. And do not miss out on the entertaining couple's dance, the couple's exhilarating video retros and a special honeymoon farewell to leave the guests with tears in their eyes.
As we said at the beginning of the text, these will be the best and most unforgettable moments of your marriage. Capriche on them and everything else will fit.
