Weddings are about commitment, having fun and spending all your savings. Yes, planning a wedding can mean emptying all your savings. However, if you are smart, you can actually end up planning a great wedding, without spending too much money on it. There are many ways, through which the bride and the groom can cut down various costs that are involved in the planning of a wedding ceremony, without these deductions having an effect on the grace and grandeur of the wedding.
Some of the simple ways through which you reduce your wedding expenses are as follows:
Spend Money On Only The Important Things
There are two things that people mostly rate a wedding on, food and entertainment. Therefore, it is important that the bride and the groom should spend a major portion of their money in ensuring that the food served at their wedding and the music and entertainment organized for the wedding are both amazing, and at the same time, they can cut down their expenses on lavish decorations and flower arrangements, which are anyways going to go waste the very next day after the wedding ceremony is over.
Invite Only Important People
For many people weddings are a way of showing off their money and status in the society. For these people it becomes important that they invite every person whom they might have met only once in their lives. But to be able to entertain so many guests, you need to have a lot of money in your pockets. However, if you do not have so much money to spend, then you need to make your wedding a more private and personal affair and invite only the small group of people who are actually important in your life and who love and care for you.
Skip The Wedding Favors
Presenting guests with wedding favours is not compulsory and when you are having a wedding where only close and personal friends and family members are being invited, you can find many other more personal ways of saying thank you to them for being a part of your most important day, rather that wasting money on giving them wedding favours, which they probably do not even care about and in many cases, leave the same behind in their hotel rooms or the wedding venue itself.
Plan Your Wedding In The Off-Season
There are certain times of the year when almost everyone wants to get married and as a result of this increased demand, everything relating to the wedding, wedding venue, wedding clothes, etc. get priced exorbitantly. Therefore, if you are trying to save some money on your wedding plans, then you should try to plan your wedding in an off-season, when you would be able to get huge discounts on these very items and thus have a very budget friendly wedding for yourself.
Research Before You Shop
If you engage in an extensive market study and research, you would be able to make all your wedding purchases at the most economical and discounted prices. Therefore, this research becomes important when trying to save money on planning a wedding.
