Your wedding is already memorable as it is without having to shell out too much. Besides, there are lots of ways for you to achieve your dream wedding even on a budget. What you should focus on is how to make the most out of your budget so you wouldn’t end up starting your married life in red ledgers.
1. Set your priorities. What are the most important things for you? Could it be your wedding dress, your theme and decorations, the flowers, your food for the reception, your venue or your wedding favors? Prioritizing allows you to allot the appropriate percentage of your budget to the things that matter to you most. You can seek advices from your family, friends and wedding experts on setting your budget. 2. Cut down on your guest list. You don’t have to feel obligated to invite everyone you know. It’s not so bad to invite only those with whom you really want to cherish your special moment. 3. It pays to plan ahead. This allows you ample time to canvass for the best prices and avail of special offers and promos. You can get discounts and special rates if you reserve venues months ahead. 4. Consider holding your wedding in the country, where rates are usually cheaper. 5. Outsource services as much as you can with your relative and friends. If you have a singer for a cousin and friends who are musicians, they might consent to be your entertainers. You can also ask your friends’ and relatives’ help on other things such as the reception, the invitations, and others.
