Are you ready to tackle the various responsibilities that await you when you plan your wedding? There are many issues you may face as you prepare for your special day, but one issue that can be particularly frustrating is trying to keep under your budget. While tradition often sees the parents of the bride support wedding costs, you may need to contribute some, or all, of these funds. You could also be concerned that your expenses might stretch your parents too thin. Securing the resources you need to ensure that your ceremony space is beautiful, and that your reception provides plenty of delicious food, and loads of fun, can be expensive. Fortunately, with some smart planning, and a little discipline, you can find many ways to reduce your costs, while still preparing for the celebration you have longed to enjoy.
1. Set Your Budget Before You Start Planning
Having a firm budget in mind at the beginning of your wedding planning can help you avoid costly mistakes. For instance, you may need to limit the number of guests you invite, based on matters of cost – if you realize you are going to be over your budget after those invitations are sent, you could be stuck in a difficult situation!
2. Look For Ways To Lower Your Food And Drink Costs
Your food and drink costs can be considerable, but there are ways to control how much you spend. Choosing between plated meals and serving a buffet can help you stay under your budget. You may want to consider offering complimentary beer and wine, but not hard liquor, or avoiding higher-end beverages.
3. Consider Taking On DIY Projects
DIY decorating projects for your wedding can help you control costs, and show off a style that more closely matches your personality. You can find great decorative items on Sunday, January 28 at Texas Old Town’s Bridal Garage Sale!
