One of the things that concerns most couples who have plans of tying the knot is their budget. Most of them have no idea on how much it would cost them to plan the wedding and make it happen.
Let us be realistic and face the fact that not everyone can afford a lavish wedding ceremony. Some couples would resort to taking out a huge loan amount just to finance the wedding of their dreams. If you can afford to pay for it that’s fine, but as much as possible let us try to steer away from unnecessary debts and just focus on planning a wedding that we can afford.
The first thing that the couple should do is sit together and talk about their overall budget for their wedding day. Make a list of the things that can be borrowed from family members or close friends and also make separate list for the things that needs to be purchased or ordered at wedding cakes Wellington, wedding rings, souvenirs and food for the guests. By doing this, you would be able to make a rough estimate on how much will you be spending in total.
If you really want to be practical and save more money, there are wedding gowns and suits for rent or you can buy at shops that sells second hand items that are in mint condition. This can help you save a couple of thousands of dollars instead of buying a brand new gown that you will only use for one day.
It’s better to allocate a reasonable amount of your budget to your wedding ceremony and after party. Focus on serving the guests good food by making an inquiry to best catering and check out if they can provide and serve food on your wedding reception.
Another major concern is the venue. If you want to have a traditional church wedding you would have to pay separately for the church and and the reception venue. But if you want to cut costs and save at least 50% you can either have the event in just one venue. Another option is for you and your spouse to have a backyard wedding rent an indoor tent, organize the event by adding tables, chairs and decorations and everything is all set.
What is important is that your guests would enjoy both the ceremony and the reception party. What’s nice about having a practical wedding is that you don’t have to think about putting a certain limit to your guest list because of budget constraints.
