Can a Budget Wedding be Beautiful?

Can a Budget Wedding be Beautiful?

Q: My partner and I are preparing our wedding. Due to financial constraints, it will be planned on a strict budget. Can a budget wedding still be beautiful?


A: Yes, a budget wedding can still be beautiful! Here’s how to plan the wedding of your dreams on a budget.


Set a budget


First, determine how much money you can afford, and are willing to spend, on your wedding. Then, allocate your funds accordingly. Jot down a list of all the wedding expenses you expect to have, such as venue rental, catering, photography and decorations, and prioritize them based on their importance, attaching a higher dollar amount to your top priorities.


Remember, a budget is a chance to get creative. Together with your partner, find unique ways to make your wedding special without spending a fortune.


Choose a venue


One of the biggest wedding expenses is the venue. The good news is, an out-of-the-box venue can save you a boatload of money without sacrificing on style and beauty. Consider having your wedding in a park or on a beach; many public spaces are very affordable or even free. Alternatively, if you’re set on having a traditional venue, look for off-peak times or consider a weekday wedding, as these can often be more affordable.


Another option for saving on the venue is to have your ceremony and reception in the same place. This can save on transportation costs and can be more convenient for your guests as well.


DIY Decorations


Another big-ticket item likely to be on your wedding budget is the decor. To save in this area, consider DIYing some or all of your wedding decorations. You can look up tutorials online to learn how to do a job that will bring professional results.


Another way to save on wedding decor is to repurpose items you already own. Mason jars, vintage books, old picture frames and unique vases can all serve as decor elements. You can also pick up low-cost decor items in secondhand shops or borrow from friends.


Finally, consider renting decorations instead of buying them. Many rental companies offer affordable options for wedding decor, such as tablecloths, chair covers and ceremony arches.
