How can you have the wedding of your dreams and still save money at the same time? Even if you don’t have much to spend, you can still throw a wonderful celebration. There are some cheap wedding solutions for couples on a budget – especially if you plan on getting married during an “off” month. January through March is a very affordable time to get married, since many vendors have their winter seasonal sales. You can also find wedding musicians that charge less during these months. Speaking of wedding decoration, they don’t have to be expensive. You can buy them wholesale or make your own. There are plenty of DIY guides for cheap wedding crafts online. You can: make gel candles, decorate flower pots, centerpieces, place card holders, and so forth. You can also make the favors yourself if you want to give your guests something that’s truly from the heart.
Carefully consider the menu. Will it be cheaper to offer a buffet or hire a caterer? Could you cook some of the food yourself? A dinner menu, appetizer, salad, and cake should be plenty enough. You can also keep cocktails and appetizers simple. All you really need is enough food and drinks for everybody to have one serving.
Look online for cheap wedding discounts on dresses, tuxes, favors, and decorations. You can save money if you order items wholesale on the internet. Sometimes stores will sell overstocked items through their websites at inexpensive prices just to get rid of them. You don’t have to compromise on quality if you order wholesale or overstocked items – you can still have a cheap wedding with nice accessories and decorations.
