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.
