Marriage ceremonies are no joke in this day and age of the world. There is the peer pressure to make it better and bigger than whoever you are comparing yourself to, and even if you are not affected by such things money is not something that you can save up easily. So the newest trend that is going on with the late twenty people who are tying the knot is to make the marriage ceremony as small and meaningful as possible and have a great honeymoon. So here are some ideas on saving up some cash during the planning and implementation of the marriage ceremony.
Go for the off season days
If you want to cut down the guest list drastically, grab a date for the big day during the off season months and in the middle of the week. This way you can ensure that the people who RSVP are only those who are actually close to you and matter to you. Most of the venues, wedding organisers in Dubai, caterers and other services that you need are much cheaper during the off season weekdays. If you want to go for the coupons and the cheapest deals, you will be sure to find them during the rainy seasons, cold months, hurricane seasons and et cetera. So if you have the ceremony during the bad season, your honeymoon will fall into the sunny season most likely.
Ceremony and reception venue packing
If you can find a venue that has both indoor and outdoor facilities, then you can utilize one at a time for each ceremony. So you can get the whole flower arrangement in Dubai and everything going for the ceremony outdoors, and yet do the reception at night indoors or vice versa depending on your personal taste. If you hold both parties at the same venue then you can probably cut a deal with the owners of the place to get the cost down.
DIY is much cheaper and healthier
Although it may sound like a headache about to happen, doing most of the decorations and other required items yourself will actually get rid of the headache induced by bills. Grab your bridesmaids and other friends to make cards, invitations, decorations, center pieces and such that you would need for the ceremony. It will allow you to have a fun time chatting and laughing and also cut down a huge cost.
When it comes to getting the dress, either buy it off the rack or pay for the dress in one go. Usually when you pay for the dress upfront, most of the stores and designers will cut down the cost a bit. This can save you a bit of money to pay off for other things or for the honeymoon.
