Budget-Friendly Wedding Planning
Weddings are definitely one of the most anticipated events in any couple's life. This is
because this day finally seals their love for each other for as long as they live. But, if
there is one thing that could be hard before this day finally comes, that would be
This becomes one of the most strenuous parts of any wedding because aside from all
forms of stress that would arise, it will also be hard to handle it using your resources.
If you are one of those couples who are planning to tie the knot soon but are on a
strict budget, careful consideration on the aspects that would affect the wedding
should be evaluated.
This is very important for you to identify which part of the wedding planning could
cost you a lot of money for you to be able to find a way how to cut the expenses off.
Experts say that one of things that cost a lot when it comes to weddings is the
attires—the gown the bride will wear, the suit that the groom will use, and of course,
the clothes that the people who are part of the wedding entourage will put on.
If you want to cut down on the cost of the attire, the best thing to do is to design them
on your own. If you have a knack for designing—and even sewing—you can use your
skills to pull off a budget-friendly wedding. How? Instead of hiring a designer that
would do the sketches for you, you can do it on your own for instance, your wedding
gown which you can design.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you were the one who will design your own wedding dress on
your big day? Of course it would be. This is because you get the chance to make a
statement with all the variations you want to create in your wedding dress. Today,
because of the advent of technology and easy access to knowledge, more and more
brides-to-be are getting into designing their own wedding dresses.
Unlike before when knowledge is limited in terms of design and its technicalities,
modern brides can have their dream wedding dress created by themselves. Now, they
can see their dream wedding dress created before their very own eyes the way they
want it to be. If you want to design your own wedding dress, you can do it in two
ways: by traditional sketching or using the "design your own wedding dress"
programs in various bridal sites in the Internet. You can do the same for your groom
and the people in your wedding entourage. Aside from saving money since you don’t
have to pay the designer, you can also ensure that there will be uniformity when it
comes to the styles and designs.
Aside from the attire during the wedding, other aspects that need consideration when
wedding planning would include the venue which could either be in a church or in
other places, the number of guests, and the reception party.
Creating Good Memories through Wedding Planning
You are excited, but at the same time, you are also worried as you go about wedding
planning. You know that this is only a once in a lifetime event and you want this to be
the best. Well yeah, there are many people who ended up getting divorced after some
time and go through the same process again and again when they choose to remarry.
This shouldn't bother you at all if this is going to be your first time. You should be
optimistic that you can work it out and your partner is the right person whom you can
spend forever with.
At this phase, your main problem is that you can only allot a limited budget on the
venture. Do not let this fact burst your bubble. This should inspire you even more to
work harder so that you can have the best wedding and a very memorable one even if
you can't afford lavish expenditures. If you are after good memories, here are some
tips that you can consider when you are planning on what to do at such event.
1. You have to be certain about just how much you can allot on your wedding day.
This is going to be the foundation of everything else that you need to decide from
this point on. After you have calculated the exact amount, you will divide this
exactly into parts that are composed of the details and needs that you need to get
for your special day. This way, you will have an idea about how many people can
you invite. If you can only tell some of your friends and relatives, don't feel guilty.
You can make it up in the future when you have more money to spend. You can
host a party for a get together of those whom you weren't able to invite on your
wedding day. They will surely understand you because this event can really be
expensive if you are not going to be firm and set your foot on certain decisions
that you need to make while it is still on the planning stage.
2. Create a Plan B for everything. For example, the gowns can actually be rented, so
why would you spend so much just to have a new one that you will never be able
to use again? It is actually impractical, especially if you have sacrificed so many
other important things just to get a new bridal gown. There are certain providers
which will allow you to pick a design. They will create that gown and you will be
the first one who is going to use it. But this is still under the condition that you
will only rent the gown and you will return it once the occasion is done. This may
be more costly than when you will opt for the gowns that are already available and
in display. But this is still a lot cheaper than when you will buy a new one that you
can keep after you have been married.
There are other things that you can look at to make sure that you will cut down the
expenses during the wedding planning. You should focus your attention on how to
create lasting memories even after the event is done.

have certain copies of invitations printed, only to find out later on that you need

to build a home and start a family or simply enjoy your lives together.

according to what you can afford.

about the plans, you should start giving out the invitations to people whom you
want to be there on your special day.
