There are so many outgoings and major expenses to consider when planning your own wedding. It goes without saying that spending money is a part of having a wedding.
But, there are so many ways in which you can make cutbacks and if you plan it carefully, you do not need to spend the next 10 years paying your wedding off.
Here are some ways that you can save money when organising your wedding, without compromising on quality.
Hiring or borrowing a wedding dress is a great way to save money as those on the marketplace these days are terribly overpriced. Speak to your friends and family about the dresses they wore and ask if they will let you try their gowns on. Most women would be only too pleased to give their dress another airing.
Reduce your wedding guest list and keep your guests to a minimum. Think carefully about who you couldn't do without and who you are only inviting because you feel pressurised to do so.
If this is not possible, why not have a hot buffet meal rather than a big sit down dinner. This will work out much cheaper and is usually just as delicious.
Head for the sales when it comes to getting your bridesmaid dresses. You should also think about reducing your entourage down if possible as this will definitely save you money.
Check out the large department stores too for their evening gown and special occasion wear. These are usually reasonably priced and are much less expensive than bridesmaid dresses from a bridal boutique.
Why don't you design and produce your own cheap wedding favours? They don't have to look cheap if you are careful and guests don't really expect lavish gifts; just a little something will be fine to mark the occasion.
Ask a friend to do your make up. This will be a special honour for whoever you ask to help you. As the friend knows you, they will also know what colours suit you and how you like to look. This means that she will probably get it right. Equally, she can use the products you already have to prevent any reaction that sometimes occurs when a new product is introduced to the skin.
