How to make a bold statement on your wedding day- without a big budget
We all want our weddings to be one that is remembered. For all the right reasons of course. However, one concern for many people is that they simply don’t have the money to be able to make it an extravagant and memorable affair.
Well, we are here to tell you that you can have a luxurious wedding, without having to worry about it costing a small fortune. To show you how, we have put together the ways that you can make a bold statement on your wedding day, without the help of a whole lot of cash.
Think smart about flowers
One way that you can really create the wow factor for your big day, is with the flowers that you choose. The trouble is that flowers can be expensive. The last thing that you will want to do is to spend less, only to find that you simply do not have enough flowers to go around. Instead, your aim should be to pick smart when it comes to flowers. Find the flowers that are going to make a statement, but that won’t break the bank. Also, think about flowers that are in season as these are likely to cost less.
Have an intimate wedding
When putting together your guest list you are likely to realise just how expensive each guest is. If you really want to create a luxurious wedding, on a small budget then one idea is to limit your guest list. Whilst you may worry that this will make it feel that you have no-one there, an intimate wedding, particularly the breakfast and ceremony can feel really special. As well as allow you treat the guests that you do have.
Try some DIY
A great way to save money on your wedding is to dabble in DIY. This may not be everyone’s ideal choice, but you can be surprised by how much you can save by taking on some of the jobs yourself. You may decide to make your own seating cards, invitations or favours, and then spend the money that you saved on really making a big impression elsewhere.
There are no two ways about it, you are going to want to make sure that your wedding day is perfect. However, for some it needs to be perfect and on budget. Think about the areas that are important to you and make sure that you focus your money in these areas. Things that you are less concerned about, well perhaps there you could save yourself some money.
