Keep It Simple To Reduce Costs

It is possible to have a perfectly good wedding without all the additional frills and expenses that go with a traditional wedding even to the extent that you might decide to not have any bridesmaids, or a best man, flower girls or other members of the wedding party.

While people traditionally have other members in the wedding party it is not essential and a lot more people are choosing not to have them these days simply to reduce the expense that is involved.

Any additional features that you have in your wedding will involve more expenditure such as flowers and dresses for the bridesmaids and flower girls and the hiring of suits and shoes for the best man and other men in the bridal party.

If you’re working to a budget you should also consider reducing the number of people that you invite to your wedding and don’t feel obliged to invite people who you haven’t contacted for some time as obviously if these people were important to you, you would have made more contact with them over last months or years.

Having a theme wedding can also add costs as all aspects of the wedding will need to tie in with that theme from the clothing to the decoration and even down to the invitation cards.

There is usually a lot more work and planning involved with a theme wedding so if you’re working on a budget you need to consider whether this is an important aspect of your wedding not.

One benefit of reducing the costs in other areas of the wedding preparations is you will have more money to spend on yourself and your partner and as you two are the whole focus of the wedding that might be a better use of your time and money.
