Just because you are planning your wedding, literally on a shoestring budget, doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t be beautiful, memorable and talked about. Planning a wedding on a low budget basically means cutting out all the vulgar pomp and grandeur and extraneous ostentation which some cheap people indulge in during their weddings to show off in front of people.
The problem is that most brides dream about a fairytale wedding right from their childhood, but when the wedding bells start ringing and they realize that such grand fairytale weddings come with an expensive price tag; they get extremely demoralized and despondent.
Well, there is no need to fret so much just because you are going in for a budget wedding party planning. In this article, you will receive a few solid tips on budget wedding planning reception that won’t eliminate beauty and elegance from your wedding!
Budget Wedding Planning tip # 1
It is in most cases the wedding venue which costs a bomb and burns away your pocket. Instead of choosing a 5 star or 7 star wedding in the Bahamas or Hawaii or Tahiti or some other exotic location, why don’t you get married in your local parish church or in the beach closest to your house or in your own beautifully landscaped garden, if you have one?
If you don’t have a garden of your own, convince your grandparents or your uncle and aunt and coax them into letting you use their garden as your wedding venue! This will reduce a heavy expenditure.
Budget Wedding Planning tip # 2
One of the most important aspects of a budget wedding party planning is to get the photographs clicked by your friends and relatives who are good with the camera instead of hiring a photographer who will charge you a bomb. Come on, we all possess sophisticated cameras and have decent camera skills. There is simply no need for a photographer and videographer in current times.
Budget Wedding planning tip # 3
Instead of lavishing money on a stupendously big fat show offy wedding cake, go for a small decent sized, beautifully decorated wedding cake that will serve as the display centerpiece. Serve the guests with homemade sheet cake from the kitchen. These two cakes will also double up as your dessert and you can cut out sweets and ice-cream from your menu.
Budget Wedding Planning tip # 4
The last tip is to hire or borrow or make yourself as many things as you possibly can! Come on, it is possible to borrow the bride’s shoes, jewelry and wedding gown from the bride’s mother or maternal aunts or from granny. You can add a contemporary twist to these items yourself!
Then you can borrow toasting glasses, serving set, cake knife, cutlery, serving dishes, dinnerware etc from friends and relatives. This way you won’t have to remortgage your house or your parents and their house to conduct your wedding.
