Affordable but Press-Worthy Wedding Ideas for Your Special Day


If you plan to get married, but you have a small budget, there is nothing to worry about. There are plenty of creative ways and ideas to organize a budget-friendly but tasteful wedding. The most important part of successful planning is to choose the wedding scene. Since marriage locations contribute the major amount to the wedding financial plan, you should choose an economical wedding venue or a package that will meet your needs and then plan the rest. Here are some press-worthy ideas for sites that can be used for the vow ceremony or reception.

Non-traditional options

If you don’t have enough money to rent a hotel or a ballroom, consider renting a garden or opting for bed and breakfast wedding packages. Gardens have a much affordable charging rate, and they have a perfect atmosphere that will set up the romantic mood. If you opt for a garden, don’t forget to check the weather. You don’t want your special day ruined by heavy rain and mud. Bed and breakfast weddings are great for elopers or for couples who don’t have a lot of time to plan every little detail of their ceremony. Every package can be customized according to the couple’s needs, so you can basically pack your entire wedding, starting from accommodation to food and decoration.

Go hunting for interesting and different places to hold a reception. You can rent an art gallery for your function, or you can rent out a government built hall that is much more economical than private halls. New places will most likely charge you less and offer your discounts to interest more clients.  

Home Sweet Home

If you need to save money on your wedding and you don’t have a lot of guests, there is no reason to pay for a venue when you can have the reception at your own home. Depending on your taste and desires, you can throw a barbecue wedding or hold a casual, relaxed ceremony. If you have a lot of guests, it may be difficult to hold a wedding at your home. A lot of guests means you will have car parking problems and you will probably have to expand your budget to rent additional seats and tables.

If you have a family member who has a bigger house or a residence with a courtyard opposite a lake or stunning view, the wedding reception can be prepared there. This is a great option because you will significantly cut your budget and have a marriage reception with an attractive view. Also, consider getting married in a smaller town instead of big capitals because everything will be a lot cheaper.

Escape Saturdays

Couples traditionally get married on Saturdays because it is appropriate, old fashioned and all your guests will be available that day. Wedding venue holders are aware of this, and that is why most of them have doubled the charge fees on Saturdays. Avoid holding your ceremony on Saturday and instead schedule it for Sundays or Fridays. Public and bank holidays can also be an excellent time to hold a reception of marriage.
