If you’re planning a wedding it’s tempting to go all out and spend money on extras that seem vital at the time. Later, when the bills come in, you may regret that you spent so much. You’ll find that it’s important to set a budget and stick to it as closely as you can, before and after the wedding.

By setting a budget you will ensure your financial future and keep yourself from going overboard during emotional times like planning a wedding. When you’re deciding how to allocate your funds your budget will let you determine where there is some wiggle room and where you can’t afford to pay more than planned.

Take your Wedding Dress for example, it’s one area where you may be able to spend less than you think. Every bride wants to look their best on the wedding day but breaking the bank on a gown you’ll wear once is costly decision. Why not consider buying a dress on sale or at a discount bridal store. You may find an acceptable one at a consignment shop. At the very least, it’s a good idea to shop around and compare prices.

Online shopping is always an option. A simple search will bring up numerous bridal stores and individual sellers. To save money, you may want to allocate the most money for the dress and borrow or forgo a veil. No one will probably see your shoes under your dress so, that could be one area where you can cut costs.

Let’s talk about wedding accessories like jewelry. You can save money here by borrowing some jewelry from your family or buying costume jewelry. Less is more, so if you’re going to buy wedding jewelry why not just buy one really nice piece instead of several lesser items.

Pearls are a good option for wedding jewelry since they aren’t expensive as diamonds and they can be worn on other occasions. They’re a classic look that flatters most everyone.

Another cost saving tips is to shop for your wedding needs in the off season. If you’re getting married in the summer, try looking through last summer’s dresses when they’re on sale in the fall. You can get some great discounts that way. Another cost saver is to shop sample sales.
