Easy ways in which you can reduce the costs of your wedding:

All of us long for the future moment in which we will get married….. therefore when this event finally takes place we want to concentrate on all specific details ranging from the attire, flower arrangements, cutlery and music to the exact menu for the ceremony. However, when we have to set up all these aspects for the big day, it seems that practicality takes in and we are reminded of how much money we have in our pockets.

In contrast to the old good days, parents of modern times have learnt how to alleviate their financial burden of the wedding of their children. Most of the people wait to tie knot long to have children, teach how to walk as well as help them with their homework for math. Simply because we do our part, our parents don't do theirs. Consequently, when we think about marriage we are left alone to deal with all the stress and problems related to this event and we have to build on our own our most important experience of our life.

For people that are struck by this surprising idea, of for the ones that may be similarly struck in not such a distant future, here you have a list with the costs that you may face when you get married. If you already have the bride or the groom, according to the case, which seems like the most expensive purchase, it is sure that you can save enough money to have a great wedding.

To begin with, there are the flowers. Surprisingly, the cost of flowers at any wedding may be as high as 800 dollars. I know what is in your mind right now….you probably want to tell me that flowers add style and majesty to the ceremony. However, you should think twice because this may be where you can actually do some cost reductions. If you don't have a very big budget, try to look for something more creative. You could take a look at a bridal magazine or a wedding site, for instance.

In addition to this, the photography and videography may take a big amount of your finances. According to the type of mementos you desire to keep from the big day, you may spend between 900 dollars and 2500 dollars. Although you may believe that it is here where you should keep costs low, it may not be the best option since this will be your only memory that will make you relive that special moment in the future. There is no use in saving some dollars if your photos are not of a high quality and make you look strange.

In case you prepare for your wedding day, bear in mind that you have to send a couple of invitations to some of the guests and thank notes afterwards as well. It is therefore unlikely that you can reduce even more these few hundred dollars for this service, but you can still give it a try. A good idea would be to persuade a friend or acquaintance who has a nice handwriting to take care of this burden and write some simple, neat invitations. In this way, you could do some savings and reduce the overall cost.

Moreover, you should take into consideration the music. There is no wedding ceremony that is complete without some good songs that set the mood for this big day and make you and your guests entertain yourselves. You should put aside around 1500 dollars for this.

Other costs may be related to the the wedding site price, which should not normally be more than 400 dollars. In addition to this, you should also arrange how to get that site itself. All these combined should be 450 dollars together. In case you desire to show your gratitude and appreciation to the guests with a token of love, put aside 400 dollars more. It is also clear that you have to have a rehearsal dinner that will cost approximately 1000$, not to mention that the reception anywhere ranges from 5000$ to 8000$.

Finally, keep in mind that your elegant wedding dress costs about 1000$. Even in the situation in which the groom manages to rent his tuxedo, you can't spend less than 500$ on the attire.  On the whole, with all the costs put together, your bill after the wedding will be of around 25 000$.

However, there is no need to panic because there are numerous areas where you can cut the wedding costs. Such areas may regard your personal means as well as  fancies, for example. Take a look at all the options available and go for the one that suits you best and seems the most suitable for your finances. However, don't put costs on the first level. This is the one of the greatest days of your lifetime so you should fully enjoy your wedding day.
