Wedding planning begins right after engagement. You and your partner will decide whether to follow your dream wedding or just have a simple one and save extra cash in starting a family. For me, I'd rather have a simple wedding then save the extra cash for future use.
My fiancé and I have been engaged for more than a year. We started our oculars to hotels, reception areas, gardens and wedding expo 2 months after our engagement. We have learned so much from our visits on how to save money to be spent in reception areas, caterers and other important stuff.
This article will discuss the steps in planning a simple wedding.
For every wedding it should begin with saving - saving money for the wedding. This can be done right after the engagement or at least a year before the wedding. At this time, the couple should discuss and decide if they want the wedding that they dream or a simple one. Also, the couple should know how much they will spend in major things like church, caterer, reception, rings and clothes.
Since saving has been done, next is reservation. The couple should save the date and time of the wedding to the desired locations like church and reception areas. It is time and money saving if the church and reception area is few feet away from each other, probably a street in between. Or the place could a ride away. The couple should do the same in reserving hotel rooms and bridal car.
It is also time and money saving if the suppliers are within the vicinity of the wedding. Get the best caterer, cake maker and florist in town.
For photographers and videographers, wedding coordinators, makeup artist and florist services - you can get these services few bucks lesser than the original price. Check out the available promo dates for these suppliers. Of course, check their portfolio to make sure that they're the best.
Wedding attire - I adore gowns made by famous fashion designers but I can't afford it. There is a way to have stylish gown without spending big. All you have to do is get the design, get the same cloth and get a professional dressmaker.
The couple shouldn't spend so much for wedding invitations and other paper supplies. Most visitors won't be keeping the invitations and programs after the event. I suggest to DIY the wedding invites. It is easy to design using the computer and print it through the home printer. If you're not good with the design ask your younger siblings or relatives to do it for you.
