Planning a wedding can be a wonderful and romantic time, but it also brings a lot of challenges and stress into the relationship. A wedding involves so many choices about budget, food, the cake, the venue and guest so that it easily becomes overwhelming. Here are some excellent tips to help you take the stress out of your wedding planning, and add a semblance of order.
To save money, choose a date that is not when most people typically get married. Most weddings are between June and August. Venues tend to be pricier during these months. If you must book a space in these months, be certain to book way ahead of time to get a reasonable deal.
As you plan your wedding, you must consider the type and amount of alcohol you wish to serve, especially if you’re working with a budget. For example, an open bar can cost you an arm and a leg, especially if it’s open throughout your reception. Inquire with your wedding venue as to what their alcohol options available are.
Choosing your favorite gown online can be faster and cheaper, but do so well in advance to allot extra time for alterations. In fact I spent $300 in total, $100 for the gown itself, and only another $200 for the tailoring. Make sure the costs are included in your budget.
You can use the property of someone you know for your wedding. If you’re in touch with people with a farm or a big backyard, this can be a cheap place for you to host a wedding ceremony. Your only expense should be paying someone to clean before and after the wedding.
Girls typically plan their weddings years before it is even a reality. There is so much to plan that just the thought of it all can be overwhelming. Fortunately, this article can help you get a handle on your wedding plans and make your wedding memorable and enjoyable for everyone involved.
