Cost effective ways to plan a budget friendly wedding

Did you recently get engaged? If so, you must be mesmerized by this life altering experience and looking forward to a lifetime of happiness with your special someone. Being engaged is a beautiful thing, while you get to show off your engagement ring to all your friends and relatives, however, when doing so you have to be prepared for the most commonly asked question. They are all going to want to know when the big day is. This can quite put you off guard if you and your partner have actually not sat down and set a date.

One of the things that must be contributing towards postponing your wedding as far as possible is the lack of finances to have a grand wedding. We all know that weddings are expensive events and most of us end up spending more than what we should for this one day, without thinking on how we are supposed to start a new life together with no money. Being in debt because you planned a grand wedding is not the way you want to start your married life with your partner. So, if you are concerned about this factor, there are several ways in which you can cut down the cost and plan a budget friendly wedding that is not only beautiful but memorable as well.

First of all, decide on the budget you and your partner are willing to spend on the wedding. This way, you both can make decisions while staying within the budget. Cut down on unnecessary wedding décor that are so expensive. Most couples spend a ton of money on décor, which ultimately get thrown away. So, be wise and invest in simple décor that will make your wedding more intimate and personal. You can also do a DIY wedding welcome sign, table signs and table center pieces to cut the cost of expensive decor. You may find a lot of inspiration online for DIY wedding décor that you can use in your wedding.

One of the best ways you can cut down the cost of your wedding is to limit the alcohol that is served. Many of us are used to having an open bar at weddings. This puts an unnecessary burden on yourself to provide your guests with unlimited alcohol. Alcohol is one of the most expensive aspects of a wedding. You can cut your costs, by having a limited amount of bottles at your wedding and have the waiters serve alcohol to the tables. This way, you can ensure that your guests have enough to drink while making sure that you are not unnecessarily spending on excess alcohol.

Have a small guest list that you can entertain. Having a big guest list means the whole cost of your wedding goes high. Invite only those who you think must make the cut and avoid inviting people just out of curtsey. By keeping your guest list short you can save a ton of money and still have an intimate and glamorous wedding that you and your guests will remember for a longtime.
