A dream wedding is hard to achieve, even with an unlimited budget. With this in mind, dialing back the extravagance to save money isn’t the end of the world. What’s more, it’s possible to pull off an amazing ceremony and reception on a tight budget. You do not have to rely on your creativity alone. Family and friends can help you add fashion and flare without breaking the wedding budget. Here are the top 5 ways to Tie The Knot on a budget.
Wedding rings symbolize the eternal circle of your love for each other. That does not mean that you have to spend thousands of dollars to find the perfect ring match. Keep in mind that it’s easy to find affordable wedding rings online. Some options include online stores, auction websites, social media sellers, and discount sites. The possibilities are endless.
If you prefer to see the ring in person before purchasing it, there are plenty of places to choose stunning wedding rings. One such place is a pawn shop. They often have high-quality items that come at much lower prices. You may search in department stores rather than stores geared explicitly towards jewelry. If it is a must that the rings are purchased from a jewelry store, be on the lookout for clearance sales.
Finding the right venue for your wedding day might seem impossible when you are on a tight budget. That does not make it impossible to find a beautiful place to share one of your most treasured days. If you have a summer, spring, or fall wedding, outdoors may be a perfect choice. Having the wedding and reception in a park (for instance) can offer beautiful scenery and plenty of space for all of your guests. There is no need to worry about bad weather if you rent a pavilion for the day. Pavilions come at a low rental fee to help keep you within budget.
The Wedding Gown
Aside from the bride and groom, the gown is where all eyes will be. You can choose a fantastic dress and still stay within your tight budget. Finding a gorgeous gown at a reasonable price is much easier than you think. Choose one of the many wedding gown outlets to get a bang for your buck. These dresses are recent styles that may have minor imperfections that no one will even see. Your dream dress is waiting among them.
From the wedding ceremony to the reception, music is a must. Don’t worry about how you are going to pay for a DJ. There are many other options to choose from, and the cost is next to nothing. Use your imagination by making playlists in your favorite music applications or set up a playlist on YouTube. You will find millions of songs to choose from.
Ask a friend if they would be willing to help with the music by making sure that the songs align with what you want. Chances are, your friend will be honored to help you out. This method can save hundreds of dollars, and your friend will likely keep the party hopping.
Flowers, Decorations, Invitations
This is the perfect place to enlist your crafty friends and family. Save hundreds of dollars by using your home computer to create beautiful invitations for your wedding. Card stock paper can be purchased at nearly any department store that sells office supplies or online. Making your own invitations ensures that you are getting exactly what you want.
Visit your favorite craft supply store to purchase artificial flowers that can be used for everything from bouquets to table arrangements. This is also a great way to create the decorations for the venue. This is the time to show off your crafting talents to all those you care most about.
You will have great memories to look back on every anniversary. Your personal touch keeps your tight budget in check and will delight your guests. Prepare for the day and then kick your heels up and celebrate your lifelong commitment to true love.
