4 ways to reduce costs at your marriage

Chic weddings are your vibe, but way too expensive, here are a few cost-cuts!

Most couples these days opt for destination weddings, while most of our parents got married in a hall. Remember the 80s and 90s? No, we are not asking you to pick a hall, but a mix of both ways.

A budget setting: Ditching the dream destination

Most towns or even villages have really great visiting spots nearby. These are mostly tourist places, but budget spaces! Pick one of your choice by the side of a lake, or hills or sea, whatever is available. Once the marriage ceremony is over and you have clicked the insta-worthy pictures, move to a hall with the party for the rest of the shenanigans.

Train a friend: For candid moments

Remember how we used to say, a friend in need is a friend in deed? Yeah, this is a good time to put that to use! You must have a friend who knows you and your partner closely, train them to take pictures. For good pictures that are not taken by professionals, you need someone who understands the chemistry between you and your partner. Borrow DSLRs and get started, take pre-wedding pictures and more to set the tone and in no time you will have a personal photographer at the wedding. Don’t forget to take good care, and give a special treatment to this person, maybe a small return gift for their outstanding help.

Fooding: No one can consume 34 items

What do you do when you have 30 plus items in front of you? You pick what you love the most and have your heart’s fill of those items right? Unless you are a food blogger, that’s what you do! It works the same way for other people too. Mindfully pick and choose items that most people love to eat, add desserts to the list and be done with it. This is to cut costs down to a reasonable amount.

Friends, family & who: Let’s talk about the guest list now

Okay, this is a difficult conversation for many cultures around the world. There are so many family members that you keep in touch with, or your parents keep in touch with, that the guest list turns into a never-ending one! You cannot make everyone happy, we are already in the 21st century, let’s make some changes there! You do not want people coming to your wedding and still back-talking at the end of the day, right? Invite your close and loved ones, who you know will cry their heart out if not invited! Keep it a tight 50-60 at most and you will have the perfect day of your dreams.
