Tips for Low Budget Wedding
- Find out from friends and family what resources they can offer to help with the wedding.
- Try to make or borrow whenever possible.
- Keep your eye out at your local thrift stores. (I've seen some 1st class wedding gowns and veils in a thrift store.)
- Choose what part of your wedding day is the most important, then plan accordingly. If the plan is to get married in an extra special place like a temple, then don't try to outdo the beauty of the wedding ceremony during your reception. The reception party does not have to look as fancy as the place of the wedding ceremony. It should reflect and function to celebrate the couple's marriage.
- Prioritize what you'd like to have for your wedding. Ask yourself; if you only had $100 to $1000 dollars to spend, what one or two parts of your wedding day would you want to spend on? Would it be the dress, photos, location, food, decorations, servers & help, caters, etc.? Now you know what item to focus your time and money on and not worry about the rest so much.
- Use internet and social media to coordinate with all of the wedding party for plans and ideas. Sign up for Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram to have one central place of sharing ideas and plans. (This especially works for brides and moms to really see what each other wants and understand how to make the ideas come to be.)
- Instead of doing things on your own, organize a play-date/unofficial party to make & do things for the wedding. In most cases, the more the merrier helps lighten the load.
- Be willing to be flexible and cooperate with the bride, groom, and their parents.
- Have fun. This is a time that should brings families together.
- Remember to put things in perspective, that this will only be one day. There is no such thing as the perfect wedding and each person attending will only remember a few things because life goes on beyond the wedding day.
