Every bride, and sometimes the groom too, wants the wedding to be like a fairy tale. If the budget is not limited, then almost any scenario can be implemented. But what if you plan to meet a more modest amount. First, you need to decide which items of expenditure can be reduced, and what it is undesirable to save on.
When planning your budget, it is important to remember that it is better to save on quantity over quality. For example, reconsider the number of invitees, whether it is so important for you to see everyone on your wedding day.
Of course, reasonable economy has not been canceled: you can buy a dress during the discount season, from the previous collection, even rent or buy a used one if it is in good condition. It is unlikely that any of the guests are an expert in wedding fashion or will notice that the dress is after being dry cleaned. But cheap fabric and poor cut are visible to the naked eye. So try to buy a good quality dress.
We now have a photographer almost every third person, many offer discounts. But it is important to remember that it is the photographs that will remind you of this day. Therefore, carefully consider the choice of a photographer, meet with a few in person, chat. The photographer's work continues after the wedding day, he needs to choose the best of hundreds of frames and process them. It cannot be cheap if the person is a professional.
Again, this is about your appearance and photographs. Many people think that a friend can also "make up". But make-up artists use professional long-lasting cosmetics, do the job so that you look good in the photo, do test make-up. This is exactly what you don't need to save on.
It is better to do without a host and have a party with a buffet table, to use the help of talkative friends than to invite a "toastmaster" with an accordion for 5000 rubles. Inexpensive presenters, as a rule, do not overwork themselves and use vulgar contests, say toasts that are boring to everyone. And they don't look very good, since maintaining a presentable appearance also costs a lot of money.
If there is not enough money for a banquet at all, then you can do without walks around the city and large banquets, and limit yourself, for example, to dinner in a restaurant with your family. And some couples on this day generally arrange a dinner for two in a good restaurant.
The main thing is to remember that a wedding is, first of all, your holiday and not try to please all relatives and friends. You are the one who decides how best to spend this day.
