Your wedding day is going to be one of the most beautiful days of your life and planning it can be very exciting. You might be dreaming about having a lavish celebration, but why spend all your savings when you can have an amazingly memorable day without breaking the bank?
If you really want to save some money, it would be a good idea to swap the traditional wedding locations, like fancy restaurants or expensive beach set-ups, with unique and intimate ones like the backyard of your family home or a friend’s garden.
The main priority for many couples on their wedding day is having their closest friends and family there to share the special moment. If you really want to be frugal, keep your ceremony small and intimate.
We all know how expensive wedding attire is, especially the wedding dress. Instead of paying thousands of dollars for something that you will only wear one time, try renting a beautiful designer gown and a slick and modern tux.
Is your cousin a talented photographer? Is your best friend amazing at doing make-up? If you have such talented friends or family members, ask them if they would be willing to provide help at the wedding instead of a gift.
When it comes to budget-friendly weddings, DIY projects can help you save a lot of money. Creating your own bouquets, flower arrangements, wedding favors or decorations can help keep your expenses under control.
