“A penny saved is a dollar earned”. Nowadays people are becoming more and more money minded and with the shortage in well-paying jobs, they are turning to other strategies to earn money. If they do not still succeed to earn some bucks, they try to save them. They are not misers – but that is what the hour demands. Marriages are one of the means by which the priorities and personality of the couple can be grasped. The normal cost of a wedding shoots up to more than $20,000. One’s wedding is the time where he/she becomes intimate with the partner with a promise of keeping together – and only for this purpose, can one spend more than 20,000 bucks?? Well, there are many strategies by which one can cut down the cost of the wedding by a quite good amount.
Firstly, trim up the entries in the guest list. With every single name of a guest that goes down into the list, one keeps increasing the budget of the marriage by a considerable amount. One keeps adding to the catering cost by trying to be generous. One also adds up to the rental expenses and other costs by calling people who never even remember you. Call only the well-wishers, colleagues, near and dear ones. Secondly, hold the marriage on a Sunday as the demand for a church on a Sunday is much less than the other days of the week! Also, avoid Saturdays as well. Next, for the sake of vanity, do not hold the reception and marriage in different places as that will add to the transportation fee as well as rentals and all that. Traveling during marriages can make one tired and worn out.
Next, try cutting down the expenditure on the marriage outfit. Do not purchase them from a very renowned and an expensive store. Try notching up deals at websites like eBay and Craigslist. One can also try shopping during the sale and discount time in shops. One can even refer to his/her local newspaper for classified ads that can rent the marriage dress. Try renting bigger tables as you can entertain all your guests at once and also, it reduces the number of table cloth needed and the other décor rentals by a satisfactory amount. Talking about the decors, one can cut down the décor cost by using more greenery and sticking to one kind of flowers. Also, try using the other items like a lantern, lamps and hangings.
One can reduce the cost of printing the invitations by printing the cards in home. Yes, this is possible. Engraving on cards and printing on handmade papers can eat away a great deal of money. Try the Microsoft Office’s Publisher which comes with many default templates of invitation cards and there are a whole range to choose from. One can ask a DJ or a local band to cover up for both the reception and the marriage. Also, an amateur photographer or a family photographer usually charges lesser fees than a professional photographer. These methods can ensure that the wedding cost is cut down by a considerable amount and that means less stress for you.
