Many couples who are just recently engaged will be bursting with ideas on the wedding day. Along with those ideas are the hundreds of guest to the list. It will really be a dream- come-true for the bride to have their dream wedding since their childhood. But little girls have no idea on the price tag that comes with a fairytale wedding and with the prices of commodities surging to a rocket high having your dream wedding is next to impossible. Unless of course if you are born with a silver spoon but if you are not being contented with what the budget can offer is what you will have to learn from the start. However tight the budget might be there are many ways of saving some bucks for the wedding without sacrificing a lot on the aesthetics. It pays to plan ahead and services are much cheaper if it is booked early. Preparing for the wedding ahead will also save you extra money on the additional costs for rush services.
Determine your Budget.
The first thing that you must know is how much is your budget. If you know how much you will spend for your wedding you can budget how much to spend on your gown, on your reception and on your honeymoon. Having a budget also sets limitations when shopping around for items needed for your wedding.
Something Borrowed, Something New
The old adage still runs true until today. Find out if there are items you can borrow from friends and family. Search the internet for newly wed brides who are selling their used wedding items for a lower price.
Create your own wedding invitation.
The benefit of planning early is creating your own wedding items during your leisure time so you don’t need to feel pressured and rushed. First design your wedding invitation using a pen and paper or graphics editing software. After you have come up with your final design, list down all the items needed to create that design. First you need to test your design on the actual materials you have chosen to have a look if it is the design you are trying to achieve. If it is then go ahead and buy all the materials needed. I have a separate article discussing creating your own wedding invitation, you can read it here.
Planning a wedding program is really tricky. You have to make sure that the program is solemn and entertaining enough for your guest. On your program you have to line up performances and in order to save on a professional fee of wedding singers, why not ask a friend who can sing well to sing a song or two on your wedding day. The program host can also be your bridesmaid, just be sure to inform the bridesmaid of your program so both of you can discuss this and prepare.
On your wedding day you can hire a wedding organizer to save you the trouble of having to worry a lot on your big day. The savings that you can have of hiring an organizer on the day itself rather than from the start of the preparation can be added to your other important expenses.
