How to Budget Your Dream Wedding in 5 Easy Steps

tAre you getting married? Congratulations! Whether you’re tying the knot a year from now or in the next coming months, it’s possible to have the perfect celebration without spending a fortune that you’d regret later (better save some for the honeymoon and emergencies!). A dream wedding could mean different things to different people, but it doesn’t have to be an expensive and elaborate affair. That’s why we made this guide to help you. Here’s how to budget your dream wedding in five easy steps:1

  1. Set a limit to how much you’d spend

 

Your limit should be sufficient enough to cover the most important things, which include your wedding dress and suit, photographer, cake, transport, catering, and venue. Stick to your budget and avoid overspending. If what you want is too expensive, find an alternative. But even if you’re on a tight budget, never hire a budget photographer. An amateur photographer might not be able to capture perfectly the most intimate moments of your beautiful day. You can always find professionals who do wedding photography in Singapore.

  1. Choose the cheapest time to tie the knot

 

Many wedding vendors tend to charge more during peak seasons when weddings are held the most, such as school holidays or long weekends. To save some money, avoid having your wedding during the peak seasons.

  1. Pick the right venue

 

Your wedding venue could make or break your wedding (and your wallet). Choosing the right venue depends on your budget and personal needs. But if you want to save more, you could have your wedding at your own house. The bigger your place, the more guests you’ll be able to invite. If you’d rather book a venue, try to book far in advance to get better deals.

  1. Personalize some aspects of your wedding

 

To save more, there are some things which you can personalize and DIY if you’ve got extra time, such as preparing by yourself the gifts for guests, and making your own wedding decorations. This is especially perfect if you’re the crafty type.5

  1. Make valuable investments for your wedding

 

For some people, certain aspects of a wedding celebration are must-haves, while others could do without them. For example, if you prefer getting a DJ, make sure to invest in a professional one for good value. However, if you’d rather skip getting a DJ and spend your money on something else for your wedding, come up with your own wedding playlist. The bottom line is, skip what you think is unnecessary and find a cheaper alternative for it.

Be smart when it comes to planning and budgeting for your dream wedding. Try sticking to the tips mentioned and we guarantee you could have the perfect wedding without spending a fortune. We wish you good luck on your wedding!
