A lot of couples start out with a ton of debt. That’s not exactly the best way to start off your life of matrimony. Being penny-wise can save you thousands of dollars. If you want to get married on a budget, we’ve got you covered with these tips:
Filter that guest list
It’s tempting to invite everyone you know, but that will only lead to a mountain of expenses. Instead, inviting close friends and family is all you really need to make the day count. Both you and your future spouse—along with your bank accounts—will be all happier for it as well. You save on costs and still get to have the best people in your life to see you exchange your “I do’s.”
Get a package
Affordable weddings are possible when you go for wedding packages. These help you save on costs and help you to put together a wedding in record time. This is especially ideal if you don’t want to spend a year—or longer—planning that wedding.
Hold the ceremony indoors
Finding the right venue can also slash off a lot of your expenses. You don’t have to spend a lot to get what you want here. There are plenty of restaurants that are sure to fit the bill. If you both love a hearty breakfast, go for your favorite breakfast diner or café. They might be able to come up with several options. That’s one way to make the day meaningful and special without taking a chunk out of your budget.
Make your own invites
Making your own invites can also help lower your costs. Affordable weddings don’t mean skimping on all the frills, says The Simple Dollar. You could DIY those invites and get the look and vibe you want for your wedding. Once the festivities are over, you can even keep one along with the rest of your wedding souvenirs.
