When it comes to the wedding budget, many couples have to compromise on their desires and expectations to make up for it. But saving the money from wherever you can allow you to execute a worthwhile wedding. Here are some ways by which you can save money for your wedding without killing your wishes.
1. Plan your budget
You must think this is an obvious step. But, believe it or not, most people fail to plan and track their budgets. Just knowing how much money you have in the bank is not enough. Instead, you should divide your budget accordingly and keep track of all the expenses you are making in this way. This will allow you to go overboard with your budget.
2. Get favors from your loved ones
If your sister can bake amazing cakes, then you don’t need a professional cake artist. If your friend knows his way around arts and crafts, you can leave the wedding invitations on him. Your loved ones will be more than happy to help you for sure and it will save you a lot of money.
3. DIY where you can
If you want to add some creativity to your wedding, you can always opt for DIY projects. For example, you can DIY confetti party poppers, wedding vows notebooks, wedding props, and event invitations. This will decrease your costs to a great extent. However, make sure you have enough time and helping hands to do it.
4. Forget all the unnecessary items
It is very common to get distracted by unneeded extras and spend your budget. But by keeping track of your budget, as mentioned above, you can avoid all of the unnecessary spendings. If you don’t want detailed stationery, too many flowers, or guest favors, you can ditch them.
5.Choose a date that’s less popular
Many wedding venues offer discounts on slower wedding seasons like winter. On the other hand, Saturdays and summers are often high in demand, which makes them very expensive days for the wedding. So, instead of choosing an expensive day, go for seasons that are less popular to save extra bucks.
We hope these tips will help you save extra money for your big day, so you can either spend it on your needs or other special things like a honeymoon. Once again, always remember to keep track of your budget. Good luck!
