Planning a budget wedding can leave you away from facing any guilt while also remain a very memorable function for you and everyone you are close to. There are many things practiced all around the world in planning a budgeted wedding, the best ones out of the lot has been chosen and listed below as follows.
Cut Down Your Guest List
You might love to invite anyone and everyone for your wedding ceremony, but this is a very sacred occasion to which only those who you care about and is reciprocated of the same, should be eligible to receive an invite. Every head is an expense, so cut down to the most important people of everyone, to be welcome to attend the event. The guest list can cause the largest expenditure because it contributes as per head values regarding the food and accommodation.
Choose the Venue Wisely
The most amount of money is spent on the venue for a wedding ceremony. If the venue is chosen wisely with care and diligent research, a lot of expense can be avoided. It is a rather effective option to hold the ceremony and reception in your home or another house or area at which the cost would be 1/4th of the cost intended to be spent at a hotel or a reception hall.
Request for Skills as Gifts
There might be so many people in your family who are skilled in cake making, floral decorations, and elopement photographer services. Getting help from friends and family to get the above preparation done without having to pay can assist the wedding budget, while also being a memorable gift that can be given to you from those who genuinely care about your wellbeing. Having such gifts given for your ceremony can cut the hassle of having to deal with finding the right people for the job as well.
Do the Catering Yourself
When the guest list is a few people, it is easier to cook the food along with others in the family. This can cut down on the money spent on catering services while also giving the food a personal touch. A wedding involves all close people in the ceremony, which would allow you a good amount of people contributing in terms of physical labour, in exchange for love and care.
Having a budget wedding would not mean that you are cheap, it can simply be known as keeping the occasion intimate and valuable in terms of invitees because only the most important and highly valued individuals would attend the event. Most budget weddings turn out to be an excellent event due to the involvement of family and their exceptional skills. So, the next time someone calls a budget wedding cheap, correct and show them how much they miss out.
