When you are planning your wedding festivities, think hard about the kinds of alcoholic beverages that are going to be available, and also how much of a price tag they will carry. Just letting people drink all they want can really add up, especially if the reception lasts a long time. Wedding venues will have different options, such as a limited open bar or a offering fewer options to help keep alcohol costs down.
If you will be preparing the food for your wedding, shop at wholesale stores. This will allow you to save loads of money. Think about asking people you know to assist with the food costs.
Buying a wedding gown can be very expensive. Don’t limit yourself to considering dresses that are marketed specifically as wedding gowns. A dress for other occasions, such as holiday parties, can sometimes work for a wedding dress, and will usually cost a lot less. Even after some alterations to spruce it up, it can still prove a more affordable alternative to a dress that says wedding on the label.
Keep the wedding in line with how you are personally. Make sure it reflects your spouse as well. Pick a wedding theme that tells the story of your relationship.
Your budget does not determine the quality of your wedding. If you follow the advice you just read, you can plan the ideal wedding for you without going into debt to pay for it.
