5 Hacks on Planning a Low-Cost Wedding

Prepare for the marriage not just the wedding. So, if you’re on a tight budget here are five hacks to make your big day still memorable.

Everyone dreams of the perfect wedding. But nowadays, it's best to be practical. Here are tips to have a low-cost wedding without compromising quality. 

Keep your guest list short.
If you really want to cut back on your budget, it's best to cut back on the number of guests as well. A wedding is a special and solemn celebration and is best celebrated with the people who matter most to you and your spouse-to-be.

Mix and match flowers.
Flower arrangements are what mostly eat up a couple's wedding expense. If you have the money, go ahead and invest in flower arrangement made entirely from fresh flowers. If you don't have the budget, why not opt for a mix of fake and real flowers instead. It wouldn't really be an obvious matter.

Get help from friends and family.
Let your loved ones get involved in the planning of your wedding. This is a great way to snatch discounts especially if you have friends or relatives that are in the wedding business or those who have a band who can sing at your reception. Remember, connections will help you save a lot!

DIY your wedding props.
Instead of buying or ordering customized wedding decors, why not customize them yourself? Making your own invitations and wedding favors will not only add a personal touch but will also save your budget!

Prioritize the ceremony 
A lot of wedding magazines put too much pressure on what weddings should look like. Just remember, the most important part is the ceremony in which you will be bonded with the love of your life. Opt for a simple venue for the reception and stay away from unnecessary decorations.
