Watching massively popular weddings on TV like William and Kate and the Kardashians can make your planned ceremony seem a little too normal. Nobody wants a plain wedding. This day is supposed to be magnificent...and under budget. Use the tips below to plan a great wedding that you'll be very proud of.
At your bridal party, try to make things as fun as possible with the people that you love. Have manicures and pedicures done to reward the people who made the biggest impact in your life. This will help to keep things casual as well, so that the mood is set for the party.
Instead of a big ballroom, try a less expensive location for your wedding reception. Investigate parks, community centers and backyards. You can decorate any space that you find if you're able to save on the fee for the location itself. Enlist help to find a cheap location and see what you can find.
Ask an expensive vendor for a referral to another professional. If you find someone that you love, but they do not fit into your budget, ask them to recommend another individual. They may have an assistant that you can use, or they might know of a talented new professional that you can hire.
Not looking forward to dancing the night away in those uncomfortable heels? Give flip flops a try. Buy some white flip flops for the bride, and colored flip flops for the bridesmaids too. This can help to make the reception more enjoyable, and the dance party last into the wee hours of the night.
