A wedding is a beautiful occasion in itself. But what can really add to that is the theme or décor that is chosen.
However, we often see families stressing over the budget for decorations and trying to plan an affordable wedding. Here’s three simple ideas can be really helpful in planning the most perfect wedding, within a reasonable budget at that.
Location: The best way to save on wedding décor would be to pick a good location. If the setting is gorgeous, the remaining decorations could be kept to a minimum, thereby blowing a smaller hole in your pocket.
The best thing about flowers is that they can add to the beauty of any décor and they need not be expensive either. Even the simplest arrangement of flowers can help brighten up the location. Adding the glow of some candles could also bring instant charm to the décor.
At any location, having the perfect seating can be nightmare- inducing. Not only can they take up a substantial part of your budget, but the wrong kind of wedding tables can destroy the whole look of the setting. Choosing a simple arrangement, teamed up with inexpensive flowers and candles, can do the trick and go easy on your pocket.
A sure shot way of saving up on décor costs would be to hold a court wedding. That way, you could plan for an extravagant wedding reception.
Apart from these, here are a few more tips to plan an affordable wedding:
· Look for places that don’t specify which caterers to sign.
· Avoid reserving venues in summer, the peak season for weddings.
· Make your guest list exclusive and plan a smaller wedding; more the people, higher the cost.
· Booking a venue on a weekday could be much cheaper, as rates are often lower than on weekends.
