Planning your wedding on a budget?

Planning your wedding on a budget?
These days we all have to keep our eye on the purse strings, but if you’re planning your special day you don’t want to have to settle for second best. Luckily you won’t have to, because with a bit of careful planning, time and attention you can have the ultimate wedding whilst sticking to your budget.

Make your wedding your own

Your wedding is a truly personal occasion and that means everything should be tailored to your individual requirements, but you don’t have to spend a fortune in order to get the desired results. Want the ultimate dress? Then buy an off-the-shelf number and have it altered, embellished and fitted to suit your needs, saving a fortune when compared to having one made from scratch. Getting the flowers sorted? Then consider opting for silk versions instead of their real counterparts, being far more cost-effective but, if you choose carefully, just as elegant and sophisticated. You could call on the specialist skills of friends and family for the likes of the catering, sweet treats, favour boxes and table decorations, and make sure to trawl the high street or craft stores for those extra touches that can make the whole thing come together. You don’t need to invest in professional decorators or planners to achieve the necessary results, and you could even take it one step further by channelling the vintage trend and making your very own homemade decorations and additions—a bit of time and attention could be all it takes, creating a memorable and beautiful result for a truly personal day.

Choose DIY wedding invitations

But, perhaps one of the best things you can do is create DIY wedding invites. This can be a great way to keep costs down as you won’t be paying for the ready-made versions, and it’ll also add to the personal nature of the day. People will be touched that you went to so much effort in order to create your invitations and you’ll be left with keepsakes as much as anything else, being beautiful reminders of your special day and a chance to really put your own stamp on things. If you think the DIY option could be for you, make sure to take a look around. Here at The Card Gallery we’ve got a stunning range of DIY wedding stationery for you to choose from, and we don’t stop at regular invites either—you could go on from that to choose DIY wedding books or photo albums, adding that personal touch to every aspect of the day and ensuring you’re left with something truly special. Personalised options of this kind can ensure you’re able to stick to a budget whilst having a day that you’ll never forget, so don’t think you need to cut corners in order to keep costs down—all you need to do is look for ways to make your wedding your own and you’ll have the ultimate wedding without the usual price tag for a day you’ll never forget.
