To save money, choose a date that is not when most people typically get married. The wedding season runs from May until September. Venues are usually more expensive then. If you're going to want to marry in this time period, be sure you're booking in advance so you can still attract a good deal.
There's nothing more important in a wedding than the person who you are marrying. There is not need to hurry this important choice. Weigh everything you know about your loved one, and think about everything involved with living with this person forever.
Have your wedding on the property of friends or family. If you know someone who has a large farm, or even just a huge backyard, you can eliminate one of the larger costs of your wedding. Make sure you hire someone to set up and clean up, but even that cost will be minimal.
The most important part of your wedding is your future spouse, so be sure that you are ready to spend the rest of your life with them. Marriage will change your life, and the decision to wed should never be taken lightly. Consider the things you need in a relationship, the thing you'd prefer to do without, and how all this applies to your potential partner.
If you want to maximize your look on the day of the wedding but are on a budget, one of the things that you can do is to rent diamonds. This will allow you to look stunning without actually having to invest in the diamonds.
While you are taking your wedding photos, do not let your guests wait. These pictures should be done beforehand. Pictures with the bride or groom and their respective parents can also be taken ahead of time, reducing the amount of time guests have to wait for your arrival at the reception.
A reception held around lunchtime is a great idea. Most people will drink less during the day, which will cut back on the cost to fill the bar. Also, dinner receptions tend to be more expensive than lunch receptions, and you'll be able to spend your savings on something else.
If you are having a destination wedding, surprise your guests with a basket chock full of goodies delivered to their hotel room. Some examples of items that you should put in the basket include: disposable cameras, sun hats, sun glasses and tourist maps and guides. It would be nice to also include a guide to local restaurants to make it easy for them to eat.
Instead of paying for a pricey cake, look into mini-tarts or cupcakes. Times have changed and despite the oddness you may feel based on tradition, guests tend to prefer this and it saves not only money but also prevents waste. Guests can take cupcakes with them as they are leaving.
