Marriage ceremonies are definitely expensive now with the latest facilities that are available and the fact that everything is so costly. Sill we see many people spending a lot or at least the maximum that they can to ensure that this special day is something that is really special. However, what if you could still enjoy the day of your dreams and not overspend and get into financial stress afterwards? Here are some great ideas on how you can cut down the cost of expenditure on your big day and still enjoy every bit of the celebrations.
Keep It Simple
One way of doing this is to keep it simple without compromising on the idea that you had for your special day. For example, if you were planning on redecorating an indoor place full of flowers to make it look as close to nature as possible, why not do it outdoors actually if the weather conditions permit? You might even be able to use your own backyard if it has a great view around it and is a quiet neighborhood with a very well-manicured lawn area. Some couples even get married in parks or such venues that will not cost them an arm and a leg. The logic here is not that you are saving money, it is that you will still be able to enjoy the day that you wanted initially, if not better at a lower cost. Remember that you and your partner are going to start a new life and anything you save can be invested in that.
Next, when you are purchasing things for your wedding be sure to make wise decisions. If you can get wedding party supplies for a cheaper cost from one place go for it, as you will have offers and discounts available if you are buying in bulk. When you order food and flowers make sure that you do the math beforehand, taking into account any taxes that might be levied on the raw materials themselves and order only what is needed. It is fine to have a bit of extra food so that you do not fall short but ordering for a hundred people at an occasion where sixty is invited is a bit too much in excess.
Your Guest List
Your guest list will be the best way you can cut down the costs as much as possible. Invite everyone that actually needs to be there. It is a big day for you and you would want to tell everyone to come, but that is not practical and more importantly it will make way for huge bills. Instead of spending on the invitees, you can choose to invest in your honeymoon. Another work around for this situation would be to hold a reception for the people that you wanted to invite but could not separately at your house so that it won’t cost you so much but to actually have a very intimate marriage ceremony with those that mean the most to you.
