The wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny is the basis of the whole hol­i­day, so you don’t want to give it up. Ukrain­ian new­ly­weds are already used to beau­ti­ful out-of-town cer­e­monies instead of the usu­al reg­is­tra­tions at the RAC. A unique plot, a flower arch and chic decor, a roman­tic land­scape — all this cre­ates won­der­ful mem­o­ries, but can painful­ly hit the wed­ding bud­get. In this arti­cle Chan­fash­ion will tell you how to save mon­ey on an out­door cer­e­mo­ny, but at the same time make it roman­tic and Insta­gram­ma­ble 🙂

The alternative is private RACs

Sav­ing mon­ey entails addi­tion­al time costs and orga­ni­za­tion­al dif­fi­cul­ties. If for cer­tain rea­sons this is not suit­able for you, but a quick offi­cial paint­ing is not con­ve­nient for you, then con­sid­er a sim­ple alter­na­tive — a cer­e­mo­ny in a pri­vate RAC. It relieves you of orga­ni­za­tion­al prob­lems, the ques­tion is only in addi­tion­al mon­ey. Such estab­lish­ments offer ready-made solu­tions for decor and musi­cal accom­pa­ni­ment, and can also cre­ate a unique sce­nario just for your cou­ple. Here are some exam­ples of insti­tu­tions of this type: REGISTRY NUMBER 1, “Ready” ser­vice, Sim­ply reg­istry office.

And now let’s move on to tips on how to make an out­door wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny cheap­er.

Free location

Coun­try com­plex­es, hotels, golf clubs and oth­er insti­tu­tions with a land­scaped area are ready to pro­vide the new­ly­weds with a place for the cer­e­mo­ny. This pro­vides many logis­ti­cal con­ve­niences, but also requires cer­tain funds. We are sure that in every city there are beau­ti­ful and well-equipped places in nature, for exam­ple, where peo­ple used to gath­er for pic­nics 🙂

When choos­ing a loca­tion, pay atten­tion to the dis­tance to “civ­i­liza­tion”. Remem­ber that it will not be a walk in sneak­ers, but a path in heels (we are sure that not all guests will take com­fort­able shoes, even if you warn), and in addi­tion, you will need to deliv­er chairs, equip­ment and decor. There­fore, the “cer­e­mo­ny area” should be quite close to the near­est car park­ing space.

Impor­tant — remem­ber about safe­ty! You must be sure that the place is 100% safe from mines. For exam­ple, no mat­ter how beau­ti­ful the wild beach­es of Ode­sa are, it is now a very dan­ger­ous option, so it is bet­ter to look for an alter­na­tive.

Instead of the master of ceremonies

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, it is dif­fi­cult to find cer­tain wed­ding spe­cial­ists, espe­cial­ly in small towns. And the issue is not only in the bud­get con­straints of the new­ly­weds. The for­mat of wed­dings is rad­i­cal­ly chang­ing, but not all spe­cial­ists are ready for this, so they decide to move or change their activ­i­ties.

An inter­est­ing solu­tion would be to invite a close friend or fam­i­ly mem­ber to be the host of your wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny. This will make the event even more inti­mate and touch­ing, because you will be exclu­sive­ly in the cir­cle of rel­a­tives and friends. Keep in mind that you will have to work close­ly with your “cho­sen” to avoid unpleas­ant mis­un­der­stand­ings: it is bet­ter to remain with­out the ele­ment of sur­prise by tak­ing part in writ­ing the script, but also not to get embar­rass­ing moments. The new­ly-mint­ed host must under­stand your wish­es and vision of the cer­e­mo­ny well, ori­ent him­self in the tim­ings and manda­to­ry ele­ments of the script.

It is also impor­tant that your per­son­al Mas­ter of Cer­e­monies him­self has the desire to take on this role and, of course, is not afraid of pub­lic speak­ing 🙂

Decor and floristry

Fresh flow­ers are a very tan­gi­ble seg­ment of wed­ding decor expens­es. Espe­cial­ly now, when logis­tics chains are bro­ken, and exchange rates are some­times so scary that they can cure hic­cups 🙂 That is why we sug­gest you use com­po­si­tions from arti­fi­cial plants or with a small addi­tion of real flow­ers. Believe me, now the fac­to­ry flow­ers look very nat­ur­al, and the arch itself will be locat­ed far enough that the dif­fer­ence will not be notice­able at all. Also, in the decor, you can com­plete­ly aban­don flow­ers by choos­ing alter­na­tives. Read our arti­cle “Wed­ding with­out flow­ers” to find ideas and inspi­ra­tion.

The sec­ond solu­tion for sav­ings is the smart use of decor. If you plan every­thing cor­rect­ly, you can use the decor from the cer­e­mo­ny area at the ban­quet, and then you will not have to pay twice. For exam­ple, dec­o­ra­tions from the arch can be quick­ly trans­formed into com­po­si­tions on the guests’ tables (if you do not fas­ten the decor tight­ly), and addi­tion­al dec­o­ra­tions and decor ele­ments can sim­ply be moved indoors. Con­sid­er that it will take time and peo­ple who can do it.

Arch for the wedding ceremony

And, final­ly, the star of the wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny (after the bride and groom, of course) is the arch. It is not easy to design it with­out the help of dec­o­ra­tors, but if you real­ly want to, you can do it 🙂 The first helper is online bul­letin boards of the OLH type. There you can find ready-made struc­tures for rent, some­times even with ready-made decor, and save quite a bit. For dec­o­ra­tion, you may need the same arti­fi­cial flow­ers, bal­loons or rain gar­lands.

The sec­ond option is more orig­i­nal solu­tions. For exam­ple, if you arrange a cer­e­mo­ny in nature, a tree dec­o­rat­ed with fab­ric and oth­er dec­o­ra­tions will be suit­able for the role of an impro­vised arch: feath­ers, paper gar­lands, flash­lights and even fam­i­ly pho­tos can be used here.

You can also refer to the recent trend from the Rus­tic style to an arch in the form of dou­ble-leaf doors — by the way, you can also find them at OLH. Per­son­al­ly, we found ads start­ing at 500 hryv­nias, which does not hit the wal­let hard, but looks sym­bol­ic and orig­i­nal.

As you can see, there are many ways to save on the wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny, but they require inge­nu­ity and addi­tion­al time for hand­made 🙂 But just imag­ine how touch­ing and per­son­al such a cer­e­mo­ny will turn out and how many unfor­get­table mem­o­ries will appear dur­ing its prepa­ra­tion. After all, the main thing is not the arch and the vari­ety of ros­es in the decor, but the words that will be heard at this moment.
