Tips for Planning the Perfect Wedding on a Budget
May 12, 2018
Planning your dream wedding can be a stressful and expensive time. Here, we will look at some ways to help you plan your ideal wedding even if you are on a tight budget. There are loads of ways you can ensure your wedding is still perfect even if you don’t have $30,000 to spend on it.
One of the easiest ways to ensure you wedding doesn’t cost the earth is to invite a smaller number of people. Try to keep it to family and close friends, rather than inviting everyone you know. This will also help you save on buying and sending invites.
You can also save a lot of money by not using a traditional wedding venue. If the weather is likely to be nice, you could choose to hold the wedding in a public park or similar. Or if you are lucky enough to live near the beach, you could have a gorgeous beach wedding. It’s also a nice idea to have your wedding at Kohl Mansion in Burlingame.
Wedding photographers and bands eat up a large part of your budget. Why not try asking at your local college if there are any amateurs who are looking for experience who would be willing to offer their services for free, or at a reduced rate. And if you know any friends with skills like these, now is a great time to ask them to do you a favor!
A fantastic way to save loads of money when planning a wedding is to buy second hand. A used wedding dress could save you hundreds of dollars, and they are almost always in excellent condition as they’ve only been used once! You could also look for decorations which have been used, or even try charity shops and thrift stores.
