TIP! If you decide to handle the food for your wedding, Costco and other wholesale stores are the way to go. If you’re shopping wholesale, you are able to get a lot of food for less money than shopping retail.

Weddings are of enormous importance to both the couple and their extended families. Unfortunately most people overextend themselves financially because they let others dictate their planning, but the event can be beautiful and not as expensive as you may think. You needn’t spend thousands of dollars to plan a gorgeous, memorable wedding. There are tips in this article to teach you how to have a great wedding on a budget.

TIP! While it’s important to provide your wedding DJ with a list of songs you love and wish to be played at your reception, it’s equally as important to let him know what you DON’T like. Perhaps it’s heavy metal, country music or special music from an ex.

Practice how you’re going to walk the aisle a lot before your wedding date arrives. Practice at your wedding venue, so you can see if the flooring works well with your footwear. This is going to make you feel confident on your big day.

TIP! Be sure that any reception venue you select has enough space for you to dance. You won’t have as much fun dancing if the space is too tight.

When you plan your wedding, be sure to think about cost effective alcohol options. If there is one thing people like more than alcohol, it is free alcohol, and an open bar can quickly become a huge expense, especially the longer it remains open. The venue representative will be able to advise you of the various alcohol service options available.

TIP! If your family joins you for a destination wedding, have them join your on your honeymoon as well. By staying longer, they will save money because hotels offer discounts for people that stay longer.

Use a friend or family member’s property for your wedding. For example, a large backyard could be the perfect setting, and you will save a lot of money this way. Pay them in advance to do this for you.

TIP! Avoid having your guests standing around waiting while you have your pictures taken. Many of these pictures can be taken before the wedding so that you don’t waste a minute of your reception time.

One thing to remember to consider for a wedding is transportation. Try to get taxis and limos for people that can’t get a ride so they can get back to where they’re staying when the night ends. Also, this is helpful for those who drank liquor during the event.

TIP! If you are having a destination wedding, why not treat your guests with an indulgent gift basket delivered right to their hotel rooms? Some examples of items that you should put in the basket include: disposable cameras, sun hats, sun glasses and tourist maps and guides. You could also toss in a few suggestions for local eateries and cafes.

Invest time in writing vows that will be truly meaningful to your intended spouse. Understand that marriage requires an endless commitment from both parties and that sacrifices often have to be made. Use your vows to publicly declare the love and dedication you feel for your beloved.

Excessive Flowers

TIP! The lighting at the wedding reception venue should be able to be dimmed. This may seem like a minor factor, but many couples like dimming the lights for a first dance, and switching to brighter lights for the remainder of the event.

Don’t overcrowd your wedding reception tables with excessive flowers. The flowers will often just get in the way when your guests are trying to eat. Excessive flowers can also be inconvenient for any allergy sufferers who are attending your wedding. Unscented candles can get placed around the tables for an atmosphere of romance.

TIP! Even if you’ve already chosen and bought your dress, it’s wise to leave it in the bridal store until the day of your wedding. It could get stained or wrinkled in your closet.

Check around for photographers who have glowing credentials. You would not want to be stuck with a wedding photographer that does not meet your high standards. To identify good local photographers, solicit advice and referrals from family and close friends.

TIP! If you are going to use a wedding cake with vibrant colors, opt for a coordinating tablecloth. You could even select a patterned or strongly textured fabric to focus attention on the cake and its beauty.

Rather than spend a bunch of money on a huge cake, you may want to opt for a few tiers of great cupcakes or small tarts. This will make things very convenient for you. Guests can choose a couple cupcakes when they leave and put them in the embellished takeout containers.

TIP! Perhaps you would consider a cruise ship wedding, with only a few close friends and family. Then, your honeymoon and wedding are all rolled into one and the cruise ship does most of the planning and supplying of everything.

See that the lighting at the reception venue has the ability to be dimmed. It may sound insignificant, but you are probably going to want to dim the lights for the first dance and turn them back up for the remainder of the reception. Ask the prospective venue about it, before choosing.

It is quite possible to have a fabulous wedding on a reasonable budget. Put the above tips to use to have a great, memorable wedding.
