Cheap Wedding Ideas for Couples

Weddings have always been one of the key events in the life of a person, the joy it brings and the ambiance it creates is overwhelming for many. However, this comes with a price (literally). A wedding needs a lot of arrangements, which call for a reasonable budget and good savings; everything needs to be in accordance with the expectations of the couple. Though, there are many ways in which you can reduce the cost of a wedding without giving up the style and sentimentality of the event. Just, a little imagination and you will have a wedding on an easy-on-the-pocket budget.
Here are some cheap wedding ideas you could use:
– Reception savings: Receptions can be pretty heavy on the pocket. Venues, food, etc. can all take up a lot of your savings. However, you can save that money by having the reception at your house or a family member’s residence. Furthermore, you would save a lot if you do your own catering or choose a caterer who might give some concession.
– Do your own invites: This process might be time-consuming, but it can save up the money you would have used in getting expensive wedding cards made and printed. You can either do it by hand to make every card look special, or you can get it made through computer using PowerPoint or any other software.
– Do your own flowers: You can design the venue with flowers by yourself; ask the creative minds in your family to handle this work. In addition, try not buying the flowers in February when the flowers are expensive due to Valentine’s Day. You can save up even more if your venue is a park or a garden as they are already lush and filled with flowers.
– Ask your friends to be the photographers: A photographer is very important for a wedding, there has to be someone who has a steady hand and can store those memories for you. Ask a friend to do that, preferably a person who has an interest in clicking and has steady hands, if you already have a photographer friend, then you don’t had to worry much about this. You can also save by putting the pictures on a social-networking forum like Face book or Flickr, which would be much cheaper than getting a photo album made.
So, try these simple and cheap wedding ideas, and you would surely save a lot of your hard-earned money.
