Practical Advice for Brides on a Budget

Your wedding can and should be the happiest day of your life. The weeks leading up to that blissful day don't make such a promise. In the months preceding a wedding, sleep is sparse and tension is high. Brides on a budget feel the pressure even more. Longing to have the wedding of their dreams but anxious not to break the bank on it, brides on a budget have a looming task. But donít despair- you can create the perfect wedding even on a restricted budget.

The best way to save money on your wedding is to cut flower costs. Flowers cover the broadest range of wedding accoutrements. With the reception flowers, centerpieces, the bridal bouquet, bridesmaids' parasols, boutonnieres, corsages, pew markers and alter pieces, flowers play a huge part in creating that special wedding feeling. Fortunately, you can minimize flower costs without losing an ounce of ambiance. Ordering flowers in bulk and making your own arrangements will save you thousands of dollars. You can let the experts walk you through the process, or your floral creations can give form to your own creative voice. Corsages can be simple and beautiful, and dozens can be made in minutes. The bridal bouquet can be extravagant, classic or a mix, and also takes no time at all. With a little help from a friend, you can even have your pew markers, alter flowers, and centerpieces assembled in one night. Doing your flowers alone takes more time and creativity on your part, of course, but the savings can be well worth the work.

There are several other ways that wedding expenses can be minimized. Think about your connections and about favors that your friends might owe you. You might have an aunt who could sew your dress or a friend who would lend you her wedding dress; maybe your momís best friend could do your manicure and make-up; your cousin might be an amazing photographer. Donít get caught up in the belief that spending more money means receiving higher quality. It is often possible to create a beautiful affair with the resources that you have; and it will be that much more special since you, your friends and your family are all working together to create this touching event.

Finally, for brides on a budget, you need to think out of the box in terms of wedding location. Instead of pricey halls or hotels, look into more economical choices. Churches and synagogue usually charge a nominal fee for the premises; even if you donít feel religiously affiliated, a wedding is a wonderful way to reconnect to your faith if you so choose. A large pool area or backyard is the perfect setting for a beautiful summer wedding. If you're really adventurous, there are many great spots to get married. Look into a wedding at the beach, at a national park, or someplace sentimental like the place where you met. These can be gorgeous, meaningful and memorable locations for your vows that wonít cost a fortune.

Your wedding is your day, and you deserve to have the wedding of your dreams. You also deserve, however, not to go into debt or have sleepless nights over the big event. With a few smart saving strategies, brides on a budget can have the wedding of the stars without spending a fortune to do so.
