Save on your wedding

If you are getting ready to plan your wedding and your budget is small, it is necessary to save from all areas of the wedding planning. In this article you will find out about the ways you can save on different wedding costs.

Here are some tips for
free wedding planning:

* Almost seventy percent of the marriages take place in the between the months of May and October every year. At this time you will find the prices of the wedding prices reaching the skies. You can easily get a good deal from these services if you plan your wedding in the off season months. You can avoid the holiday dates, as the hotels, caterers and bands are mostly going to be busy with they holiday events.

* The easiest way to cut the prices in your wedding planning is to save on the food and drinks by cutting short the guests list. This might mean cutting down some people you want to invite to your wedding. It is necessary as it is the quickest and easiest way to control your budget. In your reception, the food and drinks would be very costly. Remember, that guests, who are not so close to you, could be invited alone without family.

* Bridal gowns are not the only white gowns you will find. You can easily opt for a good wedding dress from a woman's evening wear section. During the last seasons, white elegant gowns have been in style so it won't be difficult for you to find a bridal dress amongst these. You can also look at the bridesmaid's dresses in white or ivory for the same.

* The most important thing in planning such a big event is to bargain! While buying any thing related to 'wedding' try to negotiate on the prices.

* Another effective saver is holding the reception and the wedding ceremony at the same place. This will cut down the transportation costs. Many places of worship, halls that are well equipped to hold a reception at a very affordable fee are available.

* When you are looking out for a photographer for your wedding, you can always choose an amateur photographer who is about to go professional and who needs experience. If you do this, make sure you have a look at his previous work before you decide to hire him. You could also start with photography students.

* If you are getting married in a church, there are chances of other weddings taking place prior or after yours. You can arrange to share the costs of decorating the church with these couples. Also remember that getting married after an event in the church has the place already decorated.

* When you go to the travel agents for planning your honeymoon, ask them for honeymoon vouchers. This way you pay less than the normal tours.

* The groom's outfit can be taken on rent. If he decides to buy it, it would cost much more and he would probably not wear it again.

* If you have
planned for the reception to be at a different place than the ceremony, choose a place which does not charge the hiring fee. This way the fee per head will be cheaper than a hotel.
