Plan to fail if you fail to plan

Planning ahead and being organized is all-important for any wedding but especially so for a small budget one. A budget of $5000, £3000 I believe is realistic. If your budget is smaller than this then trim costs further by making savings on numbers attending, venue and dress. This article will show you how to keep £'s or $'s down without losing anything on style.

  • Venue incl. catering, entertainment, drinks, toast, decorations, flowers, favors
  • Wedding Cake
  • Registrar
  • Ceremony (officiant, church booking, etc. incl. flowers)

  • Bridal party, Groomsmen thank you gifts
  • Photography
  • Videography
  • Cars
  • Overnight Hotel
  • Honeymoon
From this list decide (as a couple) what is MOST important to you. Usually, a bride has an idea of where her main focus will be - invariably the dress and venue. If that's the case then from your total budget set aside the amounts you feel you NEED (not want) to spend on those two areas to get the best result as per your 'wants'.

This will give you an idea of what is left re all those other things and it is on those other things that you need to focus your energies regarding making savings. That's not to say you can't still make savings on your dress and venue, you can! But the most creativity will come from the items for which you have the least cash available.
