Simple Weddings

I know of so many couples who have gotten or are getting married in 2015. Most of my friends are in the university/ college generation, so planning a wedding has a budget that is not very high. Here are a couple ideas for planning a wedding on a budget.

Keep the guest list small. The larger the guest list, the more spent on food, table settings, etc. Plan for close friends and family. You don’t need to invite your sister’s best friend’s dad’s cousin.

Make your own table centres. They can be simple, from flowers in mason jars to glass bowls with coloured stones and tea lights. The dollar store has simple decorations that can spark several ideas for easy centrepieces.

At my cousin’s wedding a couple years ago the wedding favour was homemade jam in mini mason jars with homemade labels. It was a little time consuming, but it is a great way to save money.

Don’t feel that you need to find a wedding planner. You do not. If you want one and you can afford one, it may take some stress off the steps of planning a wedding, but don’t feel the need to hire someone to get your wedding day perfect. Many individual vendors – like* McLean Sherwood Event Rental *- can help guide you through selections and make suggestions based on what they know works and doesn’t work.

There are several ways to save money on your wedding, it doesn’t need to be thousands of dollars. There are lists all over the internet on simple ways to plan your wedding on a budget.

Happy planning!
Brittany
