Walking down the aisle towards the love of your life is a dream you have been looking forward to since you were young. Years later, you finally say the most awaited ‘yes’ to your fiancé. Adult finances now creep up on you, but you still want that dream wedding.
How can you achieve that without ending up broke? You’ve already hired a wedding bus from Southern Cross Truck Rentals to take your guests to the venue. What shall you do next?
1. Minimise cost of each guest
To save on additional expenses, reduce the cost of food and drinks per guest, not the total guests invited. Choose a wedding breakfast buffet that costs around AUD 22 per person.
2. Choose an all-inclusive venue and an off-season day
When looking for a venue, get one that provides everything, such as chairs, tables and caterers, at a sensible rate. Setting your wedding date during off season, and on any day except Saturday, will save you a ton of cash. Celebrate in December instead of June and October, which are renowned months for weddings.
3. Take your time in choosing a videographer or photographer
There are a number of professionals who provide high-quality wedding videography and photography. Browse online and choose one that fits your budget. They will have different photography styles, so looking at their portfolio ensures that you find the right match.
4. Use budget-friendly decorations
Go for a minimalist and classic approach. You don’t need to spend a lot of cash on decorations, especially as there are inexpensive choices in the market. Use your family and friends to your advantage by borrowing decorations like white light and drapes.
The primary thing to remember throughout the preparation is that you’re doing this because you want to spend the rest of your life with someone you love. Don’t get caught in the process. Enjoy the feeling of being in love.
