How to save money on a wedding

A wed­ding, as you know, is always fun and beau­ti­ful: the white dress of the bride, the excit­ed groom, cham­pagne, friend­ly toasts, roman­tic dances. How­ev­er, the orga­ni­za­tion of aevent these days “flies” into a decent pen­ny. Thus, a poten­tial bride and groom often have a choice: orga­nize aac­cord­ing to all the laws of the genre, or think about how to arrange an inex­pen­sive wed­ding, and use the mon­ey saved to buy some­thing use­ful for a new fam­i­ly.

But, as prac­tice shows, the third option is the most opti­mal — an eco­nom­i­cal wed­ding, when the mon­ey is rel­a­tive­ly intact, and all­tra­di­tions are observed. There are a lot of options for such a wed­ding, it remains only to choose which one is right for you.

So how do you save money on your wedding?

  1. Under­stand­ing that it’s crowd­ed does­n’t always mean it’s fun. You should not invite your neigh­bors Aunt Valya and Aunt Lyusya, with whom you cross paths once a month on the land­ing, just to “not offend” them. There is also no need to send an invi­ta­tion to your sec­ond cousin, whom you know only from pho­tographs. Ais, first of all, a fam­i­ly hol­i­day, so it would be more appro­pri­ate to invite the clos­est rel­a­tives and friends to it.
  2. For­get about the prin­ci­ple: “to be no worse than peo­ple.” You won’t please every­one any­way, and the fact that you spent your last sav­ings on the pur­chase ofdecor is unlike­ly to be appre­ci­at­ed by any­one. The main rule of how to cel­e­brate ain­ex­pen­sive­ly is, first of all, to focus on your­self, and not on oth­ers. Con­sid­er that a roman­tic hon­ey­moon pur­chased with the mon­ey saved will bring you much more joy than your co-work­ers rave about your menu.
  3. By the way, about the menu. The main advice of those who know from their own expe­ri­ence how to hold an inex­pen­siveis as fol­lows: “Thetable should look appe­tiz­ing and var­ied, but for this it is not at all nec­es­sary to order 150 dif­fer­ent dish­es in order to sat­is­fy the gas­tro­nom­ic pref­er­ences of each of those present.
  4. The choice of restau­rant is anoth­er impor­tant point in the prac­ti­cal guide for new­ly­weds called “How to make ain­ex­pen­sive­ly.” If you want to save mon­ey, pay atten­tion to the recent­ly opened estab­lish­ments that have not yet had time to “acquire” vis­i­tors and set high prices. Also ask the admin­is­tra­tion if you are enti­tled to any dis­counts and bonus­es.
  5. A toast­mas­ter is need­ed at a wed­ding, but not at all nec­es­sary, and besides, his ser­vices are not cheap. Some­times one of your friends, who has a good “sus­pend­ed” lan­guage and the abil­i­ty to enter­tain the crowd, may well cope with his role. The only thing to keep in mind in this case is a small script. Pick up a dozen inter­est­inggames and con­tests, stock up on fun­ny prizes and go ahead!

Or, in oth­er words, what even with all the desire to save is not worth it:

  1. On the pho­tog­ra­ph­er. If you have a friend or acquain­tance who is fond of pho­tog­ra­phy — very good, with his help you will save a decent amount of mon­ey. But be pre­pared for the fact that the qual­i­ty of the result­ing pho­tographs may be very mediocre, or even worse, the pho­tographs may not turn out at all.
  2. On a hon­ey­moon trip. When cal­cu­lat­ing how to arrange an inex­pen­sive wed­ding, do not over­do it and do not deprive it of the most rev­er­ent, excit­ing moments. After the wed­ding, arrange your­self at least a small roman­tic tour for two. It doesn’t have to be a trip to the Mal­dives or Paris, let it be a mod­est week­end in a coun­try board­ing house,How to have an inexpensive wedding where you can enjoy all the delights of a hon­ey­moon.
  3. On small “whims”. If since child­hood you have dreamed of going down the aisle in a car­riage drawn by a trio of white hors­es, or in a lux­u­ri­ous lim­ou­sine, ful­fill your dream, because that’s what ais for. What you can save on instead is the pur­chase ofbou­quets and oth­er decor, which also costs quite well. Sea­son­al flow­ers will look just as good as tra­di­tion­al ros­es, lilies and mimosas, and will cost you much less.

But the main thing to remem­ber is that the­is, first of all, your hol­i­day, so make sure that it becomes an unfor­get­table event just for you.
