How to Plan a Wedding on a Budget

The majority of Americans spend less than $10,000 on a wedding, yet the average wedding costs $26,645. This is a very large amount of money for most families and cutting corners the smart way can actually reduce these figures. Here are some ideas for customizing your wedding to reduce costs:

  • The dress: If you aren’t picky about the dress then you can cut corners here. Plenty of stores have discounted rates at consignment stores. Alternatively, there might be a wedding dress in the family that’s passed down from one generation to the next.
  • Venue: A large part of the wedding budget is spent on the venue itself. You can do a backyard wedding that can save you hundreds or thousands. Community centres and hotels is another great option for a cheap venue.
  • Decorations: You can get good, quality, and used decorations for very low prices. Furthermore, there is no need to make a statement with your wedding decorations by going overboard. At times if the venue has been selected carefully then there might not be any need for decorations at all.

In addition to these great budget-friendly options, check out our great wedding packages for the ultimate transportation.
