How to Make Sure Your Small Wedding is a Memorable One

Every bride wants to make their wedding one that the guests will remember for years to come but many hold back when they feel that they don’t have enough money to hold a big event. If you have a small budget there are ways that you can plan your wedding so that it is a unique event that will leave every guest feeling pleased that they were included. The most important thing is to stop thinking so much about the budget, but rather focus on how you can use the money you have creatively. This doesn’t mean that you go garish and cheap – if you look to the right places for inspiration there is plenty that you can do on a limited budget.

Here are some ideas:

• Enlist help – true, friends and family are busy, but if you ask them for help they will most likely oblige you. Pick each of them for their strengths. If, for example, you have a friend of relative who is known to do wonders in the kitchen they can help you come up with an amazing budget, saving you money on catering. You can do the same for the cake, flowers, music and other aspects of your wedding that may otherwise cost you a lot of money.

• Plan well in advance. Ask any bride who spent a fortune on their wedding and they will tell you that a significant portion was from unforeseen last minute emergencies. You can avoid this if you plan everything well ahead. Come up with comprehensive lists that cover all areas. Don’t forget that you have a helper ready at hand – there are plenty of websites that can help you plan a wedding.

• The day is about you and your husband to be, so avoid taking everyone else’s opinion too seriously. Oftentimes families will want their ideas included but these may end up costing you a lot of money. If anyone is really keen on including something that is not on your list they can pay for it, and only then if you are happy to have it as part of your wedding.

• Getting married off peak is one way to get a great venue without parting with lots of money. While it would be great to get married in the summer or spring you should consider a date that doesn’t fall within these months and enjoy a venue discount.

Lastly, don’t forget that your wedding is supposed to be fun – don’t let all the planning get to you!
