A dream wedding can be a dream wedding without having you empty your bank account in the process. Especially in the face of some tough economic times, more couples are trying to find ways to get a wedding they can afford without sacrificing the wedding they want to have. An innovative approach to planning your dream wedding can soon turn it into a reality, while still seeing a cushion in your savings or checking account when the day is done.
Options for Getting What You Want
When it comes down to it, you have three primary options to get the wedding you want. And, it does not have to be an all or nothing decision either. There may be aspects of your wedding that fall into one of the categories, but you may have another aspect of your wedding taken care of in a different way.
Your three primary options for getting what you want for your wedding for less money are:
(1) Do-it-yourself (DIY)
(2) Shop online websites and auctions
(3) Borrow it or buy it gently used (second hand stores, borrowed, etc.)
Put a Twist on Tradition
You may also want to consider adding a twist to traditional wedding items in order to save money. If you can’t afford to hire a DJ or band, then iPod your wedding music instead. You can also turn to local college bands and musicians to get the music you want but at a reduced rate.
