As you can see planning and financing a wedding can get out of control and expensive. It doesn't take long for the costs to rise upward and soon may be outside the scope of your budget.
However, all is not lost by any means, there are many things a couple can do to still have the wedding of their dreams and keep it within their budget, even if the budget is not on a grand scale.
Shop around for prices of where to hold your wedding and reception, and if possible, combine the two venues. Some people get married at the registry office and then meet up with friends and family at the reception venue.
There are some venues that can have the wedding there on-site as well.
You may wish to hold the reception at someone's home, depending on the number of guests you have.
If you are having a meal at your wedding, or even a champagne toast with snacks, the more guests you invite, the more expense there will be.
Limiting the number of guests, without offending anyone, is a way to really trim the costs of the reception.
You can use a minimalistic approach to the floral arrangements and the flowers for the wedding.
Shop around for the catering, but you can also do a lot of this yourself or have family members cook and contribute as well. This can save a small fortune, and show off people's cooking skills.
You can save some money by making your own invitations. Not only can it be cheaper, but it also adds a personal touch.
Instead of registering somewhere for wedding gifts, you can let it be known the couple would prefer other gifts or even small donations towards the wedding.
Having a family member who is a DJ, or is musically inclined to play at the wedding can save costs. Having guests take photos using provided one-use cameras is an option as well as having a family member who is a good photographer take photos.
It all can add up to big savings in the cost of your wedding.
