Couples on Ideas to keep costs low whilst ha Every bride wants their wedding day to be special and perfect, and this doesn’t necessarily have to cost the earth. We want to share with you some ideas and tips on how to keep your wedding planning costs as low as possible, whilst giving you all the aspects of your perfect day you expect. Throwing an Engagement Party Once your partner has popped the question you will want to tell the world! Engagement Parties are an increasingly popular way of celebrating your good news with loved ones. One way to keep costs low is to hold your Engagement Party at your or a friends home. Another money saving idea is to ask all your guests to bring a plate of food, this could be organised by a list which is circulated around friends and family – similar to the way Gift Lists work, and ask everyone to chose an item to bring. Go through all friends and family and make use of their talents, can anyone bake you a cake? decorate your venue? make invitations etc. All these will save you a lot of money and they add a personal touch. Planning Your Wedding Before you do anything, it’s very important to set a realistic budget, which you can stick to. We have a free printable Budget Planner which you can print and note down what you are budgeting for each area of your wedding planning. Then you can write actual costings down and see where you have saved, can you add some of the cash saved on one item to another. The sooner you book suppliers, you may be able to secure prices and of course availability.
