The wedding of your dreams can be everything you ever imagined it could be without breaking the bank. There are definitely ways to get the wedding you want within your budget. One way to do it is to become you own wedding planner and carefully monitor all of your expenses. If you are in charge of the planning, you are in charge of the finances and you can be sure you don’t go over budget or incur any unforeseen costs.
How to Get What You Want
Although it may not be ideal when it comes to your dream day, there are ways around spending a lot of money. If you download WeDo Wedding Planner you can view all the chores expected of both bride and groom and then brainstorm innovative ways to save money when performing your duties. Once you have a clear picture of your wedding tasks you can look at doing any of the following to reduce expenses:
- Buy from websites or online auctions
- Borrow from friends and family
- Do It Yourself (enlist your bridesmaids and groomsmen too!)
Be Flexible With Tradition
Adding a twist to traditional wedding elements can really save you money. Put your wedding music on an iPod instead of paying for a DJ or have a friend host a Stock the Bar party so that you can avoid an expensive open bar tab.
Remember wedding spending doesn’t have to be an all or nothing decision, you can DIY some elements and go all out on others. Don’t forget to stick to your budget!
