Money Saving Tips for Your Wedding and Party

By: Gen Wright

Your big day is fast approaching and you are trying to figure out how to stretch a dollar into a thousand. Everything costs more for your wedding than you expected, and now you find yourself trying to find ways to save money. No need to fret, because there are a number of areas that you can save a few bucks. Here are some top ways to save money when planning your wedding and party.

Wonder what kind of wedding dress you should choose? Consider a discount wedding dress rather than an extremely extravagant one. Some ladies are very picky about having the perfect wedding dress and this tip is not for you. For those that are not as concerned with this, you can find any number of beautiful wedding dresses at drastically discounted prices. If you are flexible in your wants for your wedding, you will quickly see the prices start to drop.

Consider having the reception somewhere else after the wedding. Often, the rental of the reception can be very expensive. Take away this huge cost, and it gives you a fantastic load of money to then use on other parts of the wedding. Alternate wedding reception areas can be someone's home, or a park, or even at the local restaurant. The absolute best wedding reception that I ever attended was held in a backyard where they grilled up hot dogs, hamburgers, and we all played volleyball and danced outside. It was a blast.

Utilize the natural beauty of the outdoors. When you have a wedding outdoors, the prices drop for a number of reasons. First, the venue is usually a bit more inexpensive in the first place. Second, the outdoors already have flowers, and beauty all around so you do not have to spend quite as much on flowers, and decorations. The most beautiful weddings are outside anyway.

Imagine a garden in full bloom, or picture a sprawling landscape shaded by tall trees and fragrant flowering shrubs. You could feel the soft scents of lavender, roses, and peonies. Then there are a sweetly singing cardinal and chirping chickadees. Being surrounded by nature's divine splendor as you are pronounced husband and wife will be the most unforgettable moment in your life. Whether you celebrate your wedding party in a garden, vineyard, forest, or park; or on the grounds of your favorite bed-and-breakfast, the setting by Mother Nature will be spectacular.

Wear your mother's wedding dress. This is a tradition that holds very special memories. It also keeps you from having to spend any money on your wedding dress. If the dress needs altering a bit, you will still come out cheaper than you would if you spent money for a new dress. And you would make your mother very happy.
