For example, you can use personalized wedding ribbon saying “Just married” to hang on the meaning of transportation you are going to use that day or write messages that have a meaning for you and your soulmate as a couple and decorate the place with them. Also, you can create your own handmade invitations with colorful paper, ribbons and a creative design idea.
2. Have an outdoor party
Renting a place for wedding party can be very costly, but you can avoid these expenses if you plan it right. Choose your wedding date in Spring or Summer so that the weather will be perfect for an outdoor party. This way you can hold the party in your backyard or somewhere in the nature. Moreover, if you decorate the place with handmade decorations you will save a lot of money and your wedding will look very stylish and chic.
3. Have an open bar and stock it yourself
Alcohol is a big expense at weddings because restaurants and bars sell it double priced, but if you choose to have an open bar and buy the alcohol yourself from supermarkets you will save a lot of money. Just make sure you buy enough bottles of drinks to not experience an embarrassing situation when you have to run and buy some more. Open bar is trendy anyway and this way your guests can serve themselves with drinks whenever they feel like.
4. Be selective with your guest list
You might be too excited about your big day and invite everyone you know to take part in the party, but you should be more selective when it comes to this. First of all, if you are on a low budget you don’t want to spend too much money on unnecessary things, so do not invite people whom you only see from time to time. Also, even if the money would not be a problem, you do not want to spend your wedding day talking to people you barely know, you should have next to you and share this moment with the most important people in your life like your family and closest friends.
