Have you always been dreaming of a luxury wedding but you’re afraid that you can’t afford it? Don’t worry because you don’t need to spend every penny you have to make your wedding classy, elegant and grand. Here are ideas that will help you to throw your luxury wedding on a budget.
This is something that will help you save a few bucks. Book things you need months before the red letter day; venue, wedding band, photographer, florist, reception hall, catering and others. You’re likely to get discounts on early bookings.
Opt for a Destination Wedding
Exchanging vows in an all exclusive resort will cost you less because it’s affordable and there are several luxury packages offered. With a wedding destination you pay everything upfront and this will help prevent you from paying miscellaneous fees.
If you have a friend or a family member who is willing to help you, don’t leave that chance to pass by you. Is your brother an artist, grab the opportunity and turn his artworks into decorations. If you have someone in the family or a friend who is a musician and is willing to offer a helping hand, ask him/her to serenade guests as they enter the venue. Or check out Etsy for lovely DIY personalized wedding products.
Nowadays there is nothing to worry about. Don’t be afraid to haggle when you visit wedding vendors. These days the wedding industry is competitive. All you have to do is to be bold and ask for a reduced rate on accommodation. You never know, you can be given a discount or maybe you can be given an extra room for free.
Cocktail Party is Great
Many people usually go for sit down dinners but if you can opt for a cocktail party that feature food stations and hors d’oeuvres can be extremely classy. If you can skip dinner buffets, you are likely to save up to 20% of your budget.
