If you’re planning a wedding, there is no doubt that you want everything to go by smoothly. However, even though you wish for everything to be just perfect, sometimes something causes us to start thinking the other way than we did before; be it because of the lack of money, be it because of our disenfranchisement with the process. So, if you are one of the people guessing how to save up some money this is the article for you. We are going to show you some ways you can save up on your wedding suppliers in a few simple steps.

First of all, most people think that the wedding suppliers are only the people that supply the wedding with food, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Of course, those people are suppliers, but as are the countless others, including the wedding photographers, the car suppliers, the waiters, etc. So, how to save on them?

The Wedding Photographer

Being a photographer is no easy task, but let’s face it, it’s no hard task either. Pretty much everyone can do it, and if you have a camera and a friend who knows a little something about operating it, you’ve got yourself a wedding photographer. Of course, the wedding photographs aren’t going to be really professional, but hay, at least you haven’t spent any money on them.

The Food Supplier

If you have a friend or a family member that just loves cooking, you can save a lot of money on the food suppliers. Just have that friend or a family member (or more of them) do it for you. Then, that just leaves the small bits and pieces such as personalised love hearts to purchase in order to add that personal touch to your wedding. In fact, in some countries, this is the custom, and no food suppliers from outside of the circle are being hired; everything stays inside the circle. Also, this gives you the opportunity to brag about having all that food made by a person so close to you. And who knows, it might even be a great start in that person’s food catering career!

When it comes to the CO2 cylinders behind the bar, make sure they have been bought from reputable suppliers in order to ensure the beer quality is at its highest.

The Car Supplier

Who said that you only have to drive around in a limousine after the wedding. Can’t you just spell out the “just married” message on your own car? And in fact, driving around and doing this on your own car makes the wedding day a lot more intimate. After all, you’re doing it in something that’s yours and that you’re connected with, and not some rented car that will never be able to store all the wedding memories.

Look Up Other Tips

There are numerous wedding-themed magazines and websites around, and you can look into one of those for some help with organizing weddings. One of the best ones nowadays seems to be The Wedding Guide, which is a basically a textbook of weddings and wedding-related themes. Take a peak in it, and see other ways to save up on your wedding suppliers or for anything else related to weddings.

Action Plan For a Perfect Wedding!

So you are consider getting married, good for you and your future wife. But before getting serious about this, you should invest some time into considering all the importance and duties attached to a marriage. You are going to spend your life next to someone else, and if you want to have a good time then you must choose someone who you really love. This is the secret for a successful and happy marriage. You both must love each other, and if there’s love then there will also be respect; as simple as that.

On this article we are going to check a simple action plan which will allow you to organize a wedding without much struggle. Although, it’s recommended to hire a wedding planner, because he’s the unique person on this world who has enough experienced and knowledge in order to organize a wedding the right way. The problem with wedding planners is that they can be pretty expensive, but if you are short in time and have no clue on how to organize and manage a wedding, then hiring such person will offer a much better output.

Date & Location:
If you want to get married by June, then you should start planning your wedding since January. Six months before the agreed date seems to be the correct measure of time. You can do it even four months before, but you will feel a bigger pressure over you. If you want to keep things smooth and calm, then six months is the way to go.

And don’t forget to book the location with a lot of anticipation, if possible as fast as possible. Because wedding locations tend to be booked pretty fast, so you have to be faster than other people. Four months seems to be a correct time.

Wedding Bands:
One of the most important yet most expensive things for a wedding are the rings. Of course, they can be a bit more affordable if you go for thinner rings which are made of alternative materials. A great example is titanium, which looks very good and is not as expensive as good or silver.

You must buy your wedding bands with anticipation as well. We recommend 1-2 months before agreed date. If you want to find even better deals than your local store, then buying online seems to be best option, just keep in mind that you have to double-check reviews always.

Gifts & More:
You have to plan what your guests will eat at the wedding. Who is going to play music? What’s going to be the wedding theme? These are things you have to consider with plenty of anticipation, and let’s not forget about gifts for guests. We recommend you to keep note and track all this in an excel file, which will make it possible for you to be very well organized.

Conclusion:
Planning a wedding is not easy. If you find yourself struggling way too much, consider hiring a wedding planner.
