With the ongoing recession, getting marriedthese days need not be ultra-expensive. You can tie the knot and spend the rest of your life with your sweetheart without breaking your bank account. Here are some ideas how to achieve this:
1. Plan ahead. You’re more likely to get better deals on venue, flowers, and even catering services if you book ahead of time.
Months before your wedding date, look for suppliers and interview each of them. Through this, you can compare not just their products and services but their prices as well.
Also, it would also help if you avoided peak seasons when most couple get married.
2. Get all the help you can get. If you’re getting married and if you have friends/family members who can help you with the planning or the costs, then consider yourself lucky.
The bride-to-be can get her girlfriends to help with invitations instead of purchasing them. You may also have friends who are in a band that you can get to perform at your wedding reception.
The more help from friends, the better for your pocket.
3. Stick with your budget. It’s very easy to go overboard when planning your big day. But you have to stay within your budget if you don’t want to spend the first months or even years of your married life paying for debts that you incur because of your wedding.
