How to plan a wedding on a small budget

Are you engaged and looking forward to organising your own wedding but don’t know where to start? Look no further! Planning a wedding while hard work can be fun too for the engaged couple who can end up with a wedding they have created from scratch. However, it is no small feat. Here are a few tips that can help you to not only organise a kickass wedding but also, save money on your wedding.

Start with a Vision

Do you want a ballroom wedding, garden wedding, beach affair or one at a castle? The key to getting the wedding you desire is to have a vision for what you want your wedding to be. You can combine your own ideas with ideas sourced from Pinterest, bridal magazines and the advice of former brides. This vision board will help you come up with a to-do list when planning your wedding to ensure you don’t forget the tasks that are of vital performance.

Make a Budget

It does not matter how much money you are willing to spend, a budget sis of vital performance and helps you save money on your wedding. Most people have achieved great results when organising a wedding on a small budget by sticking to the budget throughout the planning process.

Venue and Guests

If you are going for a small budget wedding, then make sure you keep your guest numbers down. This is the same if you want a small intimate affair. The key is to be realistic about who you want to celebrate your wedding with and prioritise. Choosing a venue can also be a hurdle to cross when at the initial stages. Depending on what king of wedding you want to have, come up with several options and choose the best one. While you shouldn’t be hasty enough to pay for the venue you think is perfect just in case your plans are thrown into disarray, you should also not take long to settle on your venue as you may find it is already booked for the days you wish to have your wedding. There are many venues in Surrey though you may want a romantic wedding at a different remote location.
