Tips to Have the Best Wedding on a Budget

by on August 2, 2010

Are you planning your wedding? But want it to be inexpensive and best. Well this happens to everyone except the millionaires or billionaires, in my point of view having a flawless wedding in a rationed budget is no big deal, and if you are thinking my first tip for you will be going short on your wedding guest list then you are absolutely wrong. You can call as many guests as you want and have a memorable yet classy wedding by just keeping in mind few essential tips.

Make your Budget – The first and the most important thing one should do before a wedding is to finalize a strict budget. By analyzing how much he or she is willing to spend on different things like wedding décor, gifts, food, jewellery and clothes. make a list of everything and assign a certain amount to all the commodities accordingly. By doing this at least you know where and how to compromise with the costing.

Hire a wedding planner – This will sound crazy but trust me, nowadays wedding planners are like god sent for brides and grooms specially if you want a controlled budget marriage without giving up anything. Wedding planners help you to get the cheap and best and try to get all the things done in the acquired budget.

Plan each step – Well as now you have a wedding planner or even if you are doing it on your own, plan things, do some research and always keep your planner handy.

Start the shopping a season earlier – This will help you save a lot as the season end sales help you get some good deals on the clothes and other goods.

Study the financial market – ok, you might be thinking that what is the exact relation here, but it is very important to know the gold and other expensive commodity market rates before you go for the jewellery shopping and try buy the items when the rates are the lowest.

Get the food yourself – Try and buy the food items yourself from a local wholesale mall. Don’t depend fully on caterers. Hire a caterer to cook and give your instructions and menu which will save a lot for your budget. Consider ordering your wedding cake online to save you time and efforts. There are many online cake delivery services with fast, delicious products at an affordable price.

Well overall by just taking some smart decisions and a helping hand from an expert, you can have a lavishly beautiful and budgeted wedding.

Buying jewelry is one of the most expensive part of a wedding. It’s important that you buy your wedding jewelry at a time when the market is a bit low, that will surely save some big bucks.

Thanks for sharing your information.

It’s amazing how much you can save by doing certain things yourself – and if you have a budget you can make it go further by taking out things like invitations, etc…

Great tips on wedding savings! Starting off with a budget is definitely the best place to begin! Without knowing how much you have, or are willing to spend, it can be easy to go way overboard!

I think jewelry makes the wedding most expensive. If the couple agrees. they can cut the big amount in it. I think planning the shopping for the prefect season and places also helps in the reduction of budget for wedding.

What excellent advice you have given here I too have in my line of business which is weddings /receptions have sent out a blog to encourage Brides to think carefully about how much their wedding should cost and that if the do have a budget they should stick to it I have seen to many of them go overboard and max out credit cards for their one big day that only last exactly that . Many parents have had to come up with more money than they intended to give in the first place .So yes by all means this article of yours is excellent .
