Cheap Wedding Ideas

Cutting Costs Not Cutting Back

by Vicki Churchill

The special day that every woman dreams of does not necessarily have to be an expensive one. If you are realistic the thought of a budget wedding is not what most would be brides had on their agenda and the lack of money to realize their dream wedding day can often cause a fair amount of friction between her and her partner not to mention the families.

However before you become disheartened about the notion of scrimping and saving on your big day consider the fact that there are some fantastic cheap wedding ideas available and it does not mean you will be losing out or cutting back on any of your original wedding ideas.

For a start the cost of some wedding ideas are just plain ridiculous with prices for wedding dresses, wedding cakes, hairdos, venues and so on being vastly exaggerated. Yes it is nice to have the best of everything but this mentality will quite often cause you and your family stress and worry as you see the cost spiraling out of control.

You have to remember that having expensive wedding ideas could leave you with years of debt hanging over you especially if you are trying to decorate a new home or have young children to provide for.

Traditionally the father of the bride should pay for the wedding but these days this is becoming far less frequent and in itself can be the main cause of families falling out with each other. Obviously your wedding ideas might not be what they have in mind or approve of.

It is far too easy to spend someone else's money and sometimes the thin line on what constitutes a wedding cost can be stretched and rifts formed. Furthermore if you expect your wedding to be paid for,  be prepared for your parents wedding ideas to be part of the equation as this also is a common occurrence where families will become divided.

At the end of the day and amidst all the excitement many of the exquisite wedding accessories go unnoticed by the quests and they would be just as happy to receive homemade wedding favors or be eating your own wedding cake creation. You can save thousands of dollars by cutting back on particulars that are just as good as expensive alternatives and in some cases better.

Think of all the money you will save just by being realistic and economical which may mean you can spend more on things that won't be over and done with after a day and won't leave you with a financial headache for years afterwards.

Cheap wedding ideas are well worth swallowing your pride and considering as there is no shame being frugal with yours or someone else's money. People will respect you for being penny-wise with incidentals after all the main reason they will be at your wedding is to see you get happily married.
