Tips for creating a dream wedding on a budget

When you think about your wedding day, think about what’s most important to you and your soon-to-be spouse. Music, ambiance, and intimate setting were my top wedding picks. We wanted an event that represented us and we’re not super fancy people. We simply wanted a fun day where we celebrated our love with the people who meant the most to us. We ended up choosing a venue that offered the ambiance and services that we wanted and could afford.

Along the way, we learned:

  • Seasonal flowers are likely cheaper than imported or off-season choices.
  • Understand what’s included in all-inclusive. We visited an expensive venue and the all-inclusive price didn’t include the bar.
  • Second hand wedding dresses are available at consignment and specialty shops and can save you thousands.
  • Substitute your own vendors if they’re cheaper than the venue is offering and bring in extras like patio heaters or screens for a slideshow.

Before searching for your fairytale venue, talk to your fiancé about what they’d like and what your budget is. Whether you’re planning your entire wedding or just need an aisle runner, it’s important to know how much you can spend. The budget may be the deciding factor in the type of venue you select and how many people you invite. Because we knew we wanted an intimate wedding, we chose a small venue and had a small-ish wedding of 75 people.

Our original guest list was 250 people but we didn’t have that kind of budget so we had tough decisions to make when it came time to send invitations. No matter what happens, your loved ones will still love you, even if they might be upset they weren’t on the invite list.

Keep in mind that your wedding doesn’t need to be fancy and expensive to be memorable.
