Here at A Bargain Minister in Denver, we field a lot of questions about how to plan a wedding on a budget. Everyone wants their wedding day to be special and memorable but that doesn’t mean the cost needs to be extravagant.
- Keep Your Guest List Short
It sounds like fun to have a lot of guests at your Denver wedding but it’s important to remember that every guest adds costs and lessens the intimacy of your special day.
- Have the Ceremony Outdoors or at Your Home
Renting a hall, hotel ballroom or building for your ceremony and reception can be quite pricey. Consider alternate wedding venues such as a public park, scenic location, or your own home or the home of a close relative or friend.
- Print Your Own Invitations
If you have a decent home printer and an artistic eye, it can be easy to print some very classy invitations on your own. Many office supply stores sell blank invitation kits that make this job even easier.
- Minimize the Floral Arrangements
Wedding bouquets and floral decorations can add a surprising amount to your expenses very quickly. Consider simplifying the use of flowers such as using one simple rose for each bridesmaid or smaller bouquets. If you know someone who is willing, you can use fresh flowers cut from a friend’s garden.
Knowing how to plan a wedding on a budget doesn’t have to mean sacrificing elegance or fun. We here at A Bargain Minister in Denver can help you find more ways to save money and yet have a wonderful wedding day.
