Your wedding is probably the most expensive party you will ever hold. However, it does not necessarily have to result in large bank loans and a bank account that is depleted for years on end. Here you can get tips for the perfect wedding at a reasonable price.
Make a budget and be clear about your limit when negotiating with the parties involved. If the chef knows your financial limit, it will be easier for him to help you.
The timing can also influence the price. The wedding high season lies between May and August, which means that you can negotiate a good price if you plan your wedding outside these months.
Look at all the elements of the wedding. Where can you save money? Does it have to be a fancy reception with exquisite reception rooms, musicians and photographers? You can save a bit of money by holding a short reception. The longer it lasts, the more it will cost. Alternatively, you can hold the reception in a garden or a park, then you do not have to pay for the reception room.

It does not have to be an old classic from the 1920s that picks you up from church. Borrow a car from your uncle or a good friend. You can decorate it as you like.
Flowers are a must-have, but you can often save money by choosing seasonal flowers.
The wedding party is the biggest financial item on your budget, but if you enlist your network, you can do it much cheaper. Does anyone in your network have access to a cheap reception room, can one of your friends take the wedding pictures and can the expensive place settings be replaced by a buffet?
Again, it is a matter of using your network. Do you know anyone who plays in a band or perhaps the music buff among your friends could compose the “Wedding play list” that will have everyone dancing and singing till the small hours.
If you do not care about custom-designed wedding rings, you can find beautiful and reasonably priced rings at a jeweller online.
