Plan your Wedding

Wedding is one event which can cost you a lot because the expenses involved in the celebration are huge. And couples do not want to go for cost cutting when it comes to planning their special day. Every couple wants to have a dream wedding on their special day and want the day to be perfect. But, everyone knows how expensive weddings can be and if you are actually planning a beautiful honeymoon ahead, you should definitely try and save money instead of expanding your wallet.

You need to plan your wedding in advance and prepare your budget for everything so that you are relaxed on your special day. You might need to save money at various places and actually squeeze your wallet. This article will help you in this regard by giving you some tips to save money and plan everything for your wedding within your budget.

A large part of your wedding budget is definitely occupied by wedding cake. Your wedding cake will definitely cost you a lot only if you are planning a multi-tier cake instead of a plain vanilla cake. So, one idea will be to get a faux cake which can serve as your dream cake. Faux cake looks exactly the same in shape and size as a cake made up of actual ingredients. In this cake, only one layer is made up of actual ingredients and all other layers are made up of Styrofoam. You can be absolutely confident that your guests will not be able to identify the difference between the two.

Another idea which can really help you save money is to buy a lot of your wedding things in off season rather than peak wedding season when these things are a lot in demand. One such example is flowers which cost huge during peak season. So, I would suggest that you decide on your shopping plan accordingly. You should also look for shopping during sale/discount season in order to get all your things at affordable prices.

Another very simple thing that you can follow is to select a weekday for your wedding. Generally, people chose weekends for their wedding so that it is easier for their guests to attend their wedding. But these are definitely the costliest days of the week. You can save choose any weekdays instead for your wedding in order to save at least 30-40% on your wedding.

Another idea which can really help you save a lot of money is to borrow a lot of wedding things. I am not saying that you should borrow everything but you can always borrow some things like jewelry, necklace, earrings etc. from your mother or grandmother. You can also borrow your veil either from your mother or any of your friends who recently got married. Borrowing will not only help you to fulfill your needs but will also attach special meaning to your special day. Hopefully, these tips will help you plan your wedding within your budget.

Similarly, if you are sure of the execution part of the wedding, you should go to a part-time wedding planner who will be able to make a blueprint for your wedding and charge you only as per the time spent by him and will charge only an hourly rate or a flat fee for each requested service.

You can also hire a wedding coordinator instead of a wedding planner for your wedding day.  You can introduce the coordinator to all your vendors, he can coordinate the event, and ensure that everything goes off smoothly on your wedding day and they charge a flat fee for their service.
