Money is one of the main factors which holds couples back from getting married these days. Weddings are getting more and more expensive, especially as people want more from their special day. Here, we will take a look at some of the best ways to plan your dream wedding without going drastically over budget.
The first step to planning your wedding should be to set a budget. How much do you have to spend, or how much do you hope to be able to save or borrow before the big day? Then, you can start to look at venues which are fitting with your budget. One stunning, unique venue is to have a Vezer Winery wedding. Remember, you will need to allocate a fraction of your budget to different aspects of the wedding – venue, car hire, photographer, food, dresses and tuxedos and a band, to name just a few.
Once you have decided to get married, the first thing you’ll want to do is invite all your friends and family. You could think about sending out online invites rather than spending a lot on fancy stationary, which could actually help save quite a bit of money if you are inviting a large crowd.
You can save a lot of money by using students and trainees to provide various services you might require for your wedding. Search for local photography students, music students or trainee beauticians who will be able to provide high-quality services at a fraction of the cost of more established individuals.
Our final tip to help you save money when planning your dream wedding is to hire the venue during an off-peak time. Weekday weddings and Friday or Saturday mornings tend to be cheaper than weekend afternoons and evenings. If it’s possible, get married during the low season, when costs are likely to be much lower, too.
