set a realistic budget

prioritise your must-haves

Determine how much you can afford to spend and stick to it. Consider your savings, contributions from family, and any other sources of funding.

Decide what aspects of your wedding are most important to you - whether it's the venue, photography, dress, or food - and allocate a larger portion of your budget to those key elements.

LIMIT THE GUEST LIST

CREATE A DETAILED SPREADSHEET

A smaller guest list can significantly reduce costs. Focus on inviting close family and friends to create a more intimate and cost-effective celebration.

Keep track of all expenses in a detailed spreadsheet. Include categories like venue, catering, attire, decorations, and entertainment to ensure no cost is overlooked.

diy WHERE POSSIBLE

CONSIDER OFF-PEAK DATES

Choosing a wedding date during the off-peak season or on a weekday can result in significant savings on venues and services.

Incorporate do-it-yourself projects for invitations, decorations, and favours. This personal touch not only saves money but also adds unique charm to your wedding.

opt for in-season flowers & foods

Shop around and negotiate

Don't settle for the first vendor you find. Shop around, compare prices, and don't be afraid to negotiate to get the best deals.

Choose flowers and foods that are in season to reduce costs. Local and seasonal options are often fresher and less expensive.

BORROW OR RENT ITEMS

Consider borrowing or renting items like decor, attire, or even tableware instead of buying them. This can drastically cut down on expenses.
