Weddings are an extravagant affair, and no one can deny this fact, isn’t it? However, when it comes to deciding the budget, it is okay for us to get a bit tense for obvious reasons. But with a little bit of planning and secret strategies, you can surely make your wedding a budgeted one!
Everything is special about Indian weddings, which are colorful, jam-packed, extravaganzas with mouth-watering food, lavish décor, dance, and lots of relatives and guests to keep you occupied for an entire week! It is not a surprise to hear that the cost of weddings has increased over the years and that no one can get rid of that dreaded wedding budget.
What if we tell you that it is possible to plan a wedding on a budget without burning a hole in your pocket? It’s time to eliminate all your hidden costs and budget your wedding in the following ways.
Host the pre-wedding ceremonies at home
Understand the fact that your pre-wedding ceremonies do not have to be top-notch like your D-day. Moreover, be wise enough to invite only your close friends and relatives to these ceremonies. If your house is small, host it at a family member or a friend’s place.
Source the decorative items
Decorative items like candelabras, mason jars, candle votives, etc., are not difficult to source, and you are sure to find them more affordable than hiring! You can also narrow down your wedding décor by getting some DIY decorative items but make sure not to go overboard with them.
Be careful with the flowers!
It’s time that you stop going overboard with flowers! You can seek advice from a professional florist who can help you select the floral arrangements keeping in mind the theme and, of course, your budget.
Get married on a weekday
If you are unversed, let us tell you a fact about venue weddings. A few wedding venues charge extra for weekend functions. So, make sure your wedding date is on a weekday to avoid bearing those extra costs!
Choose local wedding vendors
Overseas or interstate wedding vendors are sure to charge whopping amounts for time, travel, and transport. Why not cut some costs and choose a local wedding vendor instead? You can also let them know your budget and leave the rest to the professionals to plan your D-day.
Although Indian weddings come with a number of challenges, they have their own beauty and grace for obvious reasons. So, get ready to say goodbye to your financial woes and plan the best budget wedding in your family by following the above tips!
