Everyone knows that weddings can be expensive. However, if you picked Windows on the Water as your venue, you may be more concerned now about successfully planning the rest of your budget. After all, it can be stressful to plan and organize a wedding. You have options to make planning your wedding slightly less chaotic – to and keep you on track when it comes to managing your budget and keeping every expense within reason. Let’s explore a few ways you can plan a wedding on a budget.
Don’t Invite Too Many People
It may seem tempting to invite everyone you know, and their best friends, to your wedding, but you should resist that urge. Keeping your wedding small and simple can help you save – on food and space, as well as on alcohol. Keeping it simple will save you plenty of money in the long run.
Make Your Own Invites and Decor
Decorating your own wedding and making your own invites can save you a ton of money. Making your own decor, or buying it secondhand, will reduce your overall cost and keep you from paying pricey commissions for invitation designs.
Rent Your Suits and Dresses
Renting the bridal party dresses and suits can be a great way to save money. Buying the suits and dresses brand new can be quite expensive. The option to return the dresses and suits after the wedding allows you to have more funds to spend on the rest of your ceremony.
Plan Early and Be Prepared
Planning is possibly one of the most important ways to save money. Make sure you plan your big day well in advance, from the flowers to the catering and the food and venue, etc. Having a plan in place will help keep you well within your budget. After all, lack of careful planning could mean unexpected expenses.
Ultimately, weddings are expensive. You don’t have to panic, though; there are plenty of ways to save money on your special day. With careful planning, consideration, and preparation, you’ll be able to afford the wedding of your dreams, and at a fantastic location.
