Below are the cost effective ideas to cut down your wedding expenses
Downsize your wedding guest list
This is very important because the numbers of guest you have will determine how much you’re going to spend as everyone that come to your wedding must eat and drink something. Trimming down the numbers of people you’re going to be invited will go a long way in reducing cost of your wedding events. You can check one of my articles here, where I talked about people you should not invite on your wedding day.
Change day from the normal or the fanciest day “Saturday”
There is no one rule that said all wedding must be done on Saturday and besides that, most Saturday are booked for wedding event and often times, make things difficult. The rent of hall for reception, wedding planner, chairs and tables always go up on Saturday when there are lots of wedding taking place. Why not consider any other day of the week (Thursday sound good) or probably on Sunday for your wedding ceremony.
Don’t go for engraving wedding invitation card
Work with your budget, you can change the list but not the budget if the list will make you spend more than you budget for. Regular invitation card will also the job that expensive engraved wedding invitation card will do.
Don’t go borrowing for your wedding
Starting a married life with debt is not the best option for any new couple in this world. You should remember that issues of money is one of the major causes of divorce and a new wedded couple starting up with inherited debt might not have the best of their early years of marriage.
Reception Venue Consideration
While hotel and some great hall around the country are very good place for wedding reception, don’t disregard village hall, town hall, church hall or local sport club hall. All of these will help you cut down cost of hiring some great hall and make it fit into your budget.
Wedding cake consideration
Wedding cake from specialist can cost an arm and a leg, instead of making massive cake that will eat deep into your budget why not make small one for the show and then another plain one to serve the guest. If you have relatives that knows how to decorate cake, give it to them to help you cut the cost of expensive cake. [Read; Wedding cake design options you may consider]
Seek for friend and family help for Music
The cost of hiring DJ and MC can also eat deep into your wedding budget, depending on your location and state. Why not seek for assistance from friends who knows about music and the one that can co-ordinate the wedding programme to assist you. You will only need to rent speakers and some few musical gadgets and everything will be handled by your friends and family.
