Getting married is a wonderful experience. You may find that there are so many options available and you really can spend as much or even as little as you want. If you aren’t sure if you can afford to do all of this however then you have nothing to worry about because there are so many ways for you to save money without compromising your day.
You Don’t HAVE to Have a Wedding Cake
Remember that you don’t have to have a wedding cake. Sure, you might want to serve your guests something after the meal but at the end of the day, it can be things like cupcakes, cookies or anything else of the sort. This is a fantastic way for you to save money and it is also a great way for you to really make the most out of your special day. Your guests will probably love it and everyone has something that they can take home with them.
You Don’t need to Offer Endless Alcohol
So many people don’t have alcohol at their wedding. After all, it’s expensive! If you have a bar at your venue then ask guests to buy their own drinks throughout the night. Of course, you may want to have some wine on the table for when the time does come for you to have your meal as this will make the whole thing feel way better, but don’t go overboard. You could have 2-3 bottles per table and even then, they don’t have to be expensive. After all, your guests are probably going to be far too busy chatting to even think about what they are drinking so don’t feel any pressure there.
It’s so important that you don’t choose a venue that doesn’t require much decoration. Some venues, you can walk in and instantly feel as though it is magnificent. If you can do this then you won’t have to spend much on decorations at all. If you are able to find a venue that has a courtyard then you can easily make this into something really special and this is a fantastic way for you to save money. The main thing that you have to work out here is if it would be more expensive for you to decorate the venue or if it would be more expensive for you to find a venue that does not need decorating a tall.
DIY Your Flowers
If you are crafty or if you know someone who can create a really special arrangement for you then don’t be afraid to do this. Of course, if you can’t afford to do this then consider looking into guarantor wedding loans as this is a fantastic way for you to get the money you need without having to compromise on your day at all. When you DIY your own flowers, try and make sure that you take into account the colours of the flowers and the theme that you are going to have. This can make a huge difference to your day and the way everything comes together.
