Weddings are definitely one of the most anticipated events in any couple’s life. This is because this day finally seals their love for each other for as long as they live. But, if there is one thing that could be hard before this day finally comes, that would be wedding planning.
This becomes one of the most strenuous parts of any wedding because aside from all forms of stress that would arise, it will also be hard to handle it using your resources. If you are one of those couples who are planning to tie the knot soon but are on a strict budget, careful consideration on the aspects that would affect the wedding should be evaluated.
This is very important for you to identify which part of the wedding planning could cost you a lot of money for you to be able to find a way how to cut the expenses off. Experts say that one of things that cost a lot when it comes to weddings is the attire; the gown the bride will wear, the suit that the groom will use, and the clothes that the people who are part of the wedding entourage will put on.
If you want to cut down on the cost of the attire, the best thing to do is to design them on your own. If you have enjoyed sewing, you can use your skills to pull off a budget-friendly wedding. How? Instead of hiring a designer that would do the sketches for you, you can do it on your own.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you were the one who will design your own wedding dress on your big day? Of course it would be. This is because you get the chance to make a statement with all the variations you want to create in your wedding dress. Today, because of the advent of technology and easy access to knowledge, more and more brides-to-be are getting into designing their own unique wedding dresses.
Modern brides can have their dream wedding dress… they can see their dream wedding dress created before their very own eyes the way they want it to be. If you want to design your own wedding dress, you can do it in two ways: by traditional sketching or using the “design your own wedding dress” programs in various bridal sites in the Internet. You can do the same for your groom and the people in your wedding entourage. Aside from saving money since you don’t have to pay the designer, you can also ensure that there will be uniformity when it comes to the styles and designs.
Aspects that need consideration when wedding planning would include: the venue, the meal, season, time of day for event, whether to serve open bar or reserve alcohol for champagne toasts. Consider the number of guests and the reception party location as well. A great way to budget for a dream wedding is to have immediate the wedding ceremony and location at the same venue. You can often get a better price on a package deal.
