Top 5 Ways To Cut Down Wedding Expenses
Although a wedding is an event that you will cherish throughout your life, it will also set you back financially by a couple of thousand dollars. However, as opposed to common perceptions, weddings don’t always need to be expensive. Here are 5 ways you can save money in your wedding.
1. Analyze your guest list
One of the best ways to save money on your wedding is to analyze and manage your guest list. It is very easy to get carried away while drafting a guest list for your wedding because every second person might come across as a ‘must invitee’. You will be taking off a significant portion of wedding costs if you limit your guest list to people who really matter in your life and the people with whom you share a close bond.
2. Scout for better deals online
It is a norm to buy a traditional wedding dress, shoes and all the other accessories that go with it from fancy retail outlets. That, unfortunately, isn’t cheap. You can find cheaper options in online stores not because of poorer quality, but because they don’t have retailing costs. If you decide to choose this option, we suggest you do it sooner just in case the size doesn’t fit you and you need to make alterations.
3. Check out countryside venues
A major chunk of the cost of a wedding is the venue and other arrangements that go with it. You can save money in your wedding by relocating the venue to the country side. This option will generally be cheaper and lighter on your wallet.
