A guide to spending less on your wedding day

Of all the major events in one’s lifetime, often your wedding is the most expensive. While the cost of each wedding will differ on individual preferences and limitations on the budget, here is a quick guide on how to best economize on your special day. 
Choosing the right location
Though this is completely subject to personal circumstances and preferences, one of the easiest ways to save money is by keeping the event local. Naturally the hiring of venues can be rather costly, but this fee is all the more expensive when people have to travel a fair way to get there. Often people want their wedding to be a grand occasion and will thus overlook and take for granted the places close to home. A little research online may result in finding that there are perfectly adequate places nearby that will serve as a great location for the big day. 

Wedding photography
Having someone capture all the important moments from your day is a very important task. However, there are a few tricks when it comes to hiring a wedding photographer that can help save money in the long run. One such way is by ensuring that a fixed rate for the day is agreed upon rather than paying the photographer by the hour. This will ensure that the entire event is covered. Trying to have the photographer include the editing time of the images in the original price is another way to save on fees. Generally most photographers are happy to do this, but it is important to be mindful of those who are trying to get as much money as possible. Having time set out for particular photos will also ensure that no one’s time on the day is wasted. Having photos done of the guests before the bridal party arrives and taking photos of the newlyweds as people move on to the reception are just a couple of ways to make sure that time is well spent.
Consider some homemade decorations in lieu of flowers
When it comes to the reception, often a major cost comes from that of the decorations. Often people fail to remember that sometimes simplicity makes more of an impression. Therefore because flowers can be incredibly expensive, one way to save could be to limit the amount of flowers as table features. Instead create a feature with candles or have some homemade decorations take its place. This will also help personalize the wedding. Such decorations and centerpieces may include photos of the couple. Either way, these decorations can be reused after the event and therefore will save money in the long run.
When it comes to weddings, often no expense is spared. However, there are some people who cannot afford such a budget and thus these have been some simple ideas to help economize on costs without compromising the impact of the wedding.
