Weddings are deemed the best day of a person’s life and is being promoted to be unique and exciting. Yes a wedding is a milestone in a person’s life, it is a place for family to gather and rejoice in the union of the happy couple and thus is an exciting and happy event. However, in modern times, especially in the east, weddings have become one of the most lucrative industries with couples spending ridiculous amounts of money to outdo the others preceding them. From exotic pre-shoots on top of mountains to gorgeous flower arrangements and cakes reaching twenty feet tall. Here are a few tips for you to make your wedding unique yet still staying under the budget.
Inviting the Most Important
Make sure to invite those people close to you and who would actually love to be a part of your big day. Most couples end up inviting over five hundred guests from collage roommate’s ex-boyfriend to your great aunt’s niece’s son and completely disappear among the crowd. If you have the wealth to do so, by all means invite a thousand. However, if you do not have the capacity, do not push the budget by inviting everyone you ever met. Cutting down on the guest list will definitely save you heaps of money.
Prioritize and Spend
As it is a wedding and as this is something most brides have been dreaming about and planning for decades, they tend to go overboard quite easily. While hiring an event company in Singapore or wedding planner will give you the contacts and a predefined priority list, make sure to make one of your own adding only what you want and do not hesitate to disagree with your wedding planners.
Make sure to spend on what you want and not cut down on cheap photography when you could have reduced the cost of dancers you hired for event entertainment with top quality artists.
Importing flowers can be very expensive, especially in the months of June and July which are considered the wedding months. Sourcing decorations and other food items from local sources will definitely save one a lot of money as well as help cater to the local tastes of the guests. However, there are also those other details such as lanterns, personalized cards, table numbers which could be purchased through online sites at half the price you pay at home. Therefore, when sourcing your items, make sure to do your research before deciding on something. Make sure to think about the time and energy you would need to impart on each depending on the options available to you.
