Your wedding is something that you have grown dreaming about. But that does not mean that your wedding will put you in debt. No point starting a new life with debt. So do not go overboard. Things are expensive and over splurging is not a good sign. Your wedding is your special day. You are not here to please your guests. In fact your guests are here to be a part of your special day. Keep in mind that the most extravagant wedding is not necessarily the best one.
One good way to cut cost is to avoid all frills. You can do away with alcohol. You can simply provide soft drinks and hot beverages. If necessary, you can keep a cash bar. If your guests want to drink, they can do it at their own cost. You might skip dinner entirely by holding your reception early in the day. You can also opt for pot luck by asking few close friends to cook. You can do away with the expensive china and silverware. You can use paper plates and napkins. Don’t worry no one will mind.
If you want some music, you can check with local colleges. They have good in-house bands that are not too expensive. You can also compile a CD of your favorite tracks from the net and play it at the venue
