Wedding Planning on a Budget - Tips You Can Use

Weddings are big business here in the U.S., with the average price of them coming in at a whopping $26,645 in 2017. This is despite the fact that most couples (46% percent of them) say their budget is set at no more than $20,000. It’s clear that not only are they expensive, but it can also be hard to remain in budget.
If you’re in the beginning stages of planning a wedding and you don’t want to find yourself going over budget and in debt after the wedding is over, then you will want to read on and check out these economical wedding planning tips. Just because you are working within a strict budget, doesn’t mean you have to make all kinds of sacrifices and end up with a wedding you aren’t happy with.

Scale Back the Guest List

One very big cost-savings measure couples can take is to scale back the guest list. It’s a good idea to each make a list of who you’d like to invite, combine those lists, and then take a look at where you can make cuts. Sure it would be great to invite everyone you know, but keep in mind that for each guest you invite you’ll be spending that much more money. Not only that, but when you have a massive guest list, the space you need to rent will be that much bigger, and that much more expensive.
For those couples on a really tight budget, you can keep it to family members and closest friends only.

Skip the Designer Cake Maker

A wedding cake is a staple at any wedding, and no-one says you should give up on this tradition. Instead, look for ways to save money on the cake itself. Those independent designer cake makers are responsible for some stunning creations of course, but those cakes come with an extremely high price tag, sometimes in the thousands of dollars range.
A money-saving tip is to look at your local grocer and see if they design and bake wedding cakes. Take, for example, Kroger, who is known for their impeccable celebration cakes. As allcakeprices.com discusses, the average two-tier wedding cake is priced at just $89.50, whereas the three-tier option is only $119.00. This can make the dream wedding cake a whole lot more budget-friendly.

Pay a Friend to DJ the Wedding

Because a wedding is a party, you need to have music, but a DJ can be very pricey to hire. Instead, load up a music player device with all your favorite tunes and hire one of your friends to be the "DJ" for the event. All you'll need is a set of speakers.

Look for a Budget-Friendly Location

The location in which your wedding is held offers another area for savings. Rather than rent a large expensive hall, take a look at more reasonably priced spaces. If you, a family member, or friend happens to have a fabulous backyard, there is also that option too.

A Beautiful Wedding that Doesn’t Break the Bank

There are all kinds of ways that you can plan a wedding on a budget, while still ensuring that the day is perfect and just how you dreamed it would be.
