Budget plays an important role in any wedding day celebration. Since couples do not want to

spend the first golden phase of their married life paying off debts, they would like to cut the

costs of wedding celebrations as much as possible. Here are some tips for such couples.

Each girl has her own idea of an ideal wedding. Her wedding dreams might have derived

inspiration from fairy tales that have a rosy ending. Girls visualize flowers, laces, and ribbons on

their wedding day.

However, when faced with the challenges of reality, a girl might get practical. She does not

reject her ideas of an ideal wedding; simultaneously, she also takes into consideration other

factors such as budget, latest styles, trends, and decorations. Cost plays a major role in any

wedding celebration plans.

A newly married couple definitely wouldn't want to spend the first phase of their wedded life

paying off debts incurred at their wedding. Therefore, the bride and the groom should pay

special attention to the wedding budget and stick to it.

Here are some cost-cutting ideas for you:

Personalize Your Wedding

If you personalize your wedding decorations, you will not only make your wedding day unique,

but also cut down the cost. For instance, if one of the couple is a professional photographer,

they could use their own photographs to create the theme of their reception. The photos could

be even be incorporated into the wedding invitations.

Rent the Decoration

You will never again get the chance of using the decorations you have used on your wedding

day. So, why purchase them? Instead, consider renting items of decoration such as the arc

ways, the vases, and the artificial flowers. Renting them, instead of purchasing them, will cut

down the cost of your wedding celebration considerably.

Make Separate Arrangements for Kids

Wedding receptions usually bore children. You can arrange a separate corner for the children

so that they can have fun by themselves.

If you want to show that your wedding is not just the union of the bride and the groom, but also

of their families, you can even customize the wedding rites to match this thought. You could

arrange things in such a way that bride's and the groom's children by previous marriages and

also the couples' families can participate in a special rite of union.

Obtain the Food from Culinary Schools

You could request culinary schools to provide the food for your wedding reception. You will then

have to pay only for the food. Alternatively, you could arrange for a pot luck dinner where

friends and family members contribute a dish each.

Keep the Guest List Small

If you want to cut down the cost of your reception, you can invite lesser people to it. Instead, you

can invite more people for your engagement party. This way you can cut the cost because only

hors d'oeuvres and cocktails are served at engagement parties. On the other hand, the

luncheons or dinners of a wedding reception cost more.

Music at Low Cost

For music, you could request a DJ or a local college band. Or, you could just download your

favorite songs from the Internet, burn them into a CD, and play them over a loudspeaker during

your wedding reception.

Sharing Costs

If another couple is planning to celebrate their wedding on the same day, you can share the cost

of decorating the church. The same decorations could be used for both ceremonies, instead of

changing the decorations.

Spending too much on a wedding is not at all a great idea. Marriage is not just a party; it is the

union of two people. Don't , arrange a reception to just to please your guests. They are

supposed to share in your joy, not criticize the arrangements you have made for the celebration.
