    Wedding Planning – Budget Friendly Wedding Reception Ideas

    Celebrating the day you and the love of your life have tied the knot does not have to cost you a fortune. If you are planning your own wedding on a limited budget, there are plenty of ways to keep the budget down for your reception. Brides-to-be and future grooms can keep money in their pockets to build their future by being extremely creative and thrifty as they select a reception venue and do their planning. If you are looking for some budget-friendly ideas you would have never considered, here are 3 tried and tested ideas to save:

    Try Taster Stations Instead of Expensive Meals

    As you price the cost of a reception, you will find that it can cost a ridiculous amount per person to feed your party when you go with a traditional caterer. Not only is this the expensive option, it limits your ability to cater for every taste. There will almost always be someone who is not happy with the options you have selected. To save money and to satisfy your hungry guests, consider a more informal and inexpensive taster station. This option gives your guests the freedom to pick what they eat and allows you to choose a variety that represents your culture and customs as well.

    Skip the Ballroom and Opt For a Cheaper Venue

    Ballrooms and exclusive venues may be breathtaking once they are decorated, but they can double your budget. One of the best ways to save on your reception is to choose a location that is low in cost or even free. Remember the vineyard where you met or the museum you went on your first date? Consider the meaning of the location over the luxurious features. You may even be able to hold the celebration at a family’s home so that you can spend more on the entertainment than the setting.

    MOSI
    Recruit a Team of Decorators

    It is easy to go overboard when you are decorating your venue. Almost all brides who have just said their “I dos” would love to walk into a wonderland of flowers, crystals and all the decor that they envisioned in their dreams. Decorating your venue does not have to cost you tons of cash. You don’t need to use the finest china and real silver. Instead, get a group of your best friends and your family together and welcome them to the decor team. They can scout the shops for the best deals on lighting and flowers and even help give ideas to make centrepieces and name tags. Not only will your venue be beautiful, it will also mean more in the long haul.

    Your wedding reception is meant to be an unforgettable event where you and your loved ones celebrate your marriage. If lack of cash is a problem, consider taking out personal loans with easy repayment plans and low interest. Again this option should only be considered if you have the ability to pay. Remember, you don’t want to start your new life buried in debts, so be resourceful and creative as you plan. Create your own wedding planning team, ask for help, and always be open to new ideas that can save you money.
