The Inexpensive wedding: How to Downsize and Save Money

Planning for a perfect wedding doesn’t have to be expensive. Neither is buying an expensive diamond wedding ring. The inexpensive wedding may be the way to go. If the both of you are comfortable in your own skin and don’t care what others think about you, why not economically simplify your wedding. Ignore the traditional expectations of what a wedding should be like. If this is what both of you desire, then follow these guidelines and save money and time.

Replace the DJ

Who says you have to have a DJ or live band at the reception? You can simply use an everyday entertainment device, including CD player, DVD or home entertainment system that will boom out particular selections of songs you have pre-recorded. There is nothing to be embarrassed about; this strategy will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollar


Substitute the Cake

Avoid getting an expensive tiered cake if you need to save money. Instead, buy a simple, but well-decorative sheet cake or cupcakes. Getting away from the traditional wedding cake may seem a little awkward to some, but surprise your wedding guest with your unorthodox approach. You’ll be amazed at how many people will admire it.

Choose a Dress instead of the Traditional Gown

Instead of buying a bridal gown, buy a beautiful white dress. This will not only save you money but eliminate the stress of trying to find that perfect wedding gown. You can search for the appropriate dress at some of the most popular retail stores, including Macys’, JC Penney and Boston store. You can find something simple with a low price but have a shade of elegance.

Open Your Mouth and Let Them Know

Word of mouth is still one of the most powerful advertising approaches. So instead of buying envelopes and sending out eventuation’s, you can call up your family and friends and tell them the day of the wedding. Let them make the date on their calendar. You will save time and money.

Get Creative and Design Your Own Flower Bouquet

Don’t be ashamed to create your own flowers. Get ideas from the local flower shop or even your grocery store. Making your own bouquet will help you express your creativity plus discover a new found talent. Your friends and family will be amazed when they find out that you designed your own bouquet. If you are in doubts about doing this yourself, go to YouTube and find videos that will show you step by step on how to arrange a bouquet of flowers.

The hallmark of having a great but inexpensive wedding is determining which aspects of the wedding can be significantly downsized but won’t interfere with the joyfulness and elegance of the event. A diamond engagement ring is a must, but it doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

The above tips will help you move in the right direction for a beautiful and memorable occasion.
