How To Make The Wedding Of Your Dreams On A Budget
With the average wedding costing an average of $25,000, it makes sense that many couples struggle to afford every part of their wedding. Although it can be difficult to have a large budget, there are many ways to ensure that you still have your dream wedding at a fraction of the cost.
Handmake the Decor
Handmake your own decor with plenty of DIY projects that will give your wedding a personal touch without compromising on the overall look. It will save hundreds of dollars in the long run and can even be made with the help of the wedding party.
Hundreds of DIY decor ideas are available on blogs and smartphone apps with step by step tutorials to ensure your handmade items look professional and truly one of a kind.
Borrow Essential Items
Instead of buying items that you won’t need again, ask your family and friends who have recently gotten married to borrow a ring bearer pillow, a wedding arch, or even vases to use for the centerpieces. You’ll easily save thousands of dollars and won’t have to resell the items after the event.
You can also purchase preowned wedding items online for marked down prices on items that are gently used and will still look new for your wedding day.
Purchase a Recycled Wedding Dress
Instead of spending thousands of dollars on a new wedding dress that you’ll only wear once, opt for a recycled wedding dress that was only worn by one bride. It will still look new and will be professionally cleaned to ensure that it looks beautiful and classic on your special day.
Hold Your Ceremony Outdoors
Outdoor weddings offer spectacular views, whether opting for a ceremony in the woods or preferring beautiful beach weddings. They are not only beautiful, but can also be affordable or even free for those planning a wedding on a budget. It means saving on the decor as the natural scenery will be enough to furnish the space for both spectacular ocean weddings or if opting for a ceremony deep in the woods.
Instead of compromising on the overall look of your wedding, opt for other options that allow you to stay within your budget and still have the wedding of your dreams. It will make the event just as enjoyable and will allow you to prevent spending more than you can afford.
