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.
