Just because you don’t have a lot of money doesn’t mean you can’t have a nice wedding. You simply need to get a little more creative. This article will give you seven ideas that you can use to help cut down on your costs. No matter how low your budget is these tips will be useful to you.

Idea #1: Cup Cakes Instead Of Cake

You could learn how to make a cake yourself. An even better idea is to skip the cake and go with a cup cake wedding instead. Cup cakes are easier to make then a cake and cheaper to make yourself. There is also allot less waist left over from the cup cakes.

Idea #2: Have A Casual Wedding

A casual wedding is perfect for a couple on a budget. You don’t need to buy an expensive dress, you don’t need to have a fancy meal, and you don’t need to go crazy with allot of the extras. Don’t think that casual weddings are boring. They are anything but boring. A casual wedding has a more relaxed and fun atmosphere to it. This puts people in the mood to party and dance.

Idea #3: Ask For A Discount

Allot of couples don’t get discounts because they don’t ask for them. You may be able to get discount through negotiation. For example, you could buy your wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses in the same place. By doing so you could ask for a discount.

Idea #4: Choose A Low Budget Location

Most venues will require you to decorate them a fair bit for your wedding. However, you could have your wedding at a garden and not need to decorate. Gardens are gorgeous all on their own. Look into finding locations in your area where the location speaks for itself.

Idea #5: Make Your Own Invitations

There is lots of great software on the market that will allow you to make your own invitations cheaply. Another option is to do a search online. I have found places that do nice invitations for as low as $30 for hundred invites.

Idea #6: Make Your Own Flower Arrangements

Buying flowers in season, then using them to make your own arrangements will save you allot of money. Make sure that you keep your arrangement simple.

Idea #7: Have A Simple Meal

Forget the large 5 course meal. You don’t need it. Keep it simple and tasty. All people will care about is if the food is any good.
