Your wedding day does not have to cost and arm and a leg for it be exactly how you picture it. It does not make sense to spend so much on one day and that is without a honeymoon and where you will stay after you return. Many couples are opting for a simple yet stylish approach to weddings that does not break the bank and look tacky.
Wedding dress and accessories:
I know you have been picturing the perfect tailor-made dress for your big day accompanied by a flowing train and a tiara that holds up your veil spectacularly. And don’t forget those beautiful pearls and other expensive accessories that will match your dress. However, you can still look your dazzling self at a fraction of the cost. These days, there are plenty of online stores you can purchase or hire a wedding dress and there are a variety to choose from. The groom can do the same. Whether it is real pearls and diamonds, nobody at your wedding will care so why not get faux accessories that still look as dazzling without the steep prices.
While it is not always the ideal option, asking family and friends who love to cook and bake to prepare dishes for the wedding is a golden idea. You can save an enormous amount of money by purchasing the ingredients and planning the menu yourself. Adhering to number of guests will also help and cater for the exact number of people. When it comes to drinks, pay attention to specials and try to buy in bulk when possible.
- Guest list
That also brings us to casting your guest list in stone. While you might want to invite the whole neighbourhood to your special day, it can be an added expense you should easily avoided. If you can get away with inviting immediate family and one or two friends to your wedding, then do so. The colleagues you don’t see outside the office and neighbours you have not spoken to in years can stand to miss out on the nuptials.
- Wedding Venue
A wedding is an intimate affair and having those close to you share such a day with you is special. Being tight on the guest list will not only save on food and drinks expenditure but you can save on the size of venue you select. A park setting or even hiring from Red Scooter is a solution couples can decide on when looking for affordable wedding venues in Melbourne.
