Maybe you’re a bride or groom who is planning your own wedding. Or maybe you’re a parent who isn’t so much planning the wedding but is planning to cover the expense of your child’s wedding. Either way, your goal is the same: to create the beautiful and unforgettable wedding of your dreams without spending a fortune in the process. Here are some ways to help you do just that!
Location, Location, Location
This is where you can save massive amounts of money for your wedding. Does a friend have a killer backyard you could borrow? Are you friends with a restaurant owner and you could use the space on their day off? Search for free or inexpensive venues such as parks, museums, and beaches around you on your HP Pavilion 7th Gen All-in-One PC from Buydig.com and you can find an amazing venue for next to nothing.
You’ve spent months drooling with desire over the designer gowns, but you can find what you’re looking for without the crazy price tag. Look for a dress hanging on the rack that fits you.
Ready for My Close Up
Pictures is another place where you’re likely to demolish your budget if you’re not careful. However, with the advances in technology and the amazing cameras on cellphones, you have no excuses anymore. Companies like Eversnap are your wedding budget’s best friend. Guests can snap pictures all night long and upload them to your custom site. Hire a professional photographer for just a few hours to fill in and round out your pictures.
Don’t be afraid to go against the grain here. Hire an amazing wood burning pizza truck to make gourmet pizzas at half the price of a caterer, but double the hip factor. Have a talented friend make all the gourmet appetizers at cost. If you put your mind to it, you can be both inventive and budget conscious without your guests even knowing.
Twistin’ The Night Away
You don’t need to spend thousands on a band or a DJ to have an awesome dance party at your wedding. You just need good speakers, a mixing deck if you can get access to it, and a Bluetooth device, like your Samsung tablet, loaded with some great dance songs. Pay a friend to be your DJ. The focus should be on your guests having a good time. After a few cocktails, they won’t notice if you had a six-piece band or a great playlist.
Use flowers and decor to accentuate, not as the main feature. Get on your LG Ultra-light Notebook from Buydig.com and order from a big box store or even go to a local flower shop or grocery store the day of your wedding. You may not get exactly what you have your heart set on, but you will have plenty of options at a fraction of the price.
It’s Not a Competition
You don’t have to be different, or unusual. A couple doesn’t have to do something no one else has ever done. You just have to be you. Remember, there’s nothing wrong with throwing on a little dress and a suit and then holding a party afterward. The more genuine the event, the more your guests will relax and enjoy your wedding.
It’s possible to stun your guests with a hip and stylish wedding that’s affordable at the same time. Hopefully with these simple strategies you can start imagining your wedding, with all the glitz and glamour, at a fraction the price.
