Your wedding is a day most of us have dreamed about since we were young. But with big dreams can come big price tags, and while the nature of wedding planning is expensive, there are certainly ways to bring down the zeros on that bill while still being the wedding you envisioned.
Hire a professional
While this may seem like a rather big expense, this can save you money in the long run. A professional wedding planner can work within your budget to ensure everything runs smoothly and there are no surprises. They know the in’s and outs of the industry and will be able to give you honest advice and get creative with your budget.

Limit the guest list
The most costly part of a wedding? Dinner and drinks! The more guests you have the more the dinner and drinks bill will cost. It’s okay to be picky with your guest list, and this will ultimately save you the most money. Especially with a destination wedding it’s already standard to have a smaller guest list.
Patience is key! By planning a year or more out you can confidently adhere to your budget, take it slow, and even save up for some extra glam. Money can be thrown around recklessly when deadlines are looming and not everything is taken care of. Do yourself a favor and protect your sanity and budget by planning ahead.
Research to find your perfect vendors
This may take a little extra time, but if you are on a budget it is essential that you take the time to research. Read all the blogs, the reviews, and find all the discounts.
