No matter how small you plan your wedding to be, it will still cost you money, money that you
have to save up for. This is what most couples are thinking about and it’s what’s holding them
back. Raising money for a wedding can take some time and of course some effort on your part
but it doesn’t mean that it is impossible. We have here some wedding tips that you can work on
to save money on your wedding day.

1. Start your own wedding savings account- it makes it easier to save up if you have a separate
account designated only for your wedding. You can go to different banks and inquire if they are
offering no minimum savings accounts. Opening an account is actually pretty easy and you’ll be
sure that no one will touch it because it is safe in the bank. Also, if any of you plan to use the
money, you will be able to track deposits and withdrawals in your account easily.

2. Save up regularly- this is the most common and easiest way to save money for your wedding.
Make it a point to put away a portion of your salary every month and put it directly to your
savings. This is a good way to start building up a sum of money for your wedding. Keep in mind
that saving up takes some time so you have to start doing this as early as possible and you
have to be patient with this one.

3. Extra jobs- another thing you can do is to look for more jobs to earn more money. If you have
a lot of extra time to spare, you can look for quick jobs. Working online is another option
because it doesn’t take too much of one’s time and can generate a good amount of money. You
can also work on monetizing your blog by putting up ads, wherein you’ll earn money when
visitors click on them. You can work as a freelancer in different fields; you can work as a writer,
photographer, editor, tutor, translator and many others.

4. Sell some of your items- make use of the junk in your home and sell them to earn some cash
for your wedding. You can even start a garage sale to sell items faster and you can also post
them online for others to bid on.

5. Wedding loan- if you are really having trouble coming up with the money, you can apply for a
loan to fund your wedding then pay for it later. But before you go applying for a loan, do check
your credit reports first. If your score is not that high, you can work on improving your score for a
couple of months then do a credit check and see how your credit score changes.

6. Offer your services in exchange for something else- be creative and ask other people if they
can work on, for example the wedding invitations in exchange of what you can do for them.
You’d be surprised to how willing your friends will be to help you out for your wedding.

7. Control your spending- if you are really determined to save money for your wedding, then you
really have to make a few sacrifices in order to save more money. If you are used to dining out
during the weekends, you can save more money by cooking the dinner by yourself. Or instead
of going out to watch a movie, you can just buy a DVD and watch it at the comfort of your home.
Be creative and you can cut back on your expenses and at the same time still enjoy it.
You don’t have to spend a lot to have the wedding of your dreams. Organize your wedding and
plan it out early to have an idea of how much you need to rise. The earlier you start, the better
and the more money you’ll be able to earn. Determination and discipline is all you need to get
through this phase and if you succeed, you’ll surely have enough money for the wedding of your
