Small weddings, big savingsSeptember 23, 2013 15:27
One of biggest businesses in India is the marriage industry. A lot of people survive on this age old ritual as marriages may not survive always, but the wedding planners sure will. To ensure few savings from the big fat wedding, take a note of these cost cutting tricks.
One of the biggest cost cutting strategies is to organize a wedding ceremony with only the most important people attending the big day. Keeping the guest list small contributes to planning a good marriage, rather than a big hole in the pocket.
Lesser guests mean a simple and elegant wedding at a decently sized venue, instead of a huge hall that has more space than people in it, not to mention the steep rents. Smaller venue, lesser but fuller decorations too. Many precious bucks are saved from needless decorations with unnecessary loudness.
Speaking of decorations, choose a wedding date that makes the most of seasonal flowers. Stay away from exotic flowers if you want to make the cash stay in your pocket. Better still, plan a wedding during an off-wedding season, when all items are available for delightful discounts.
Another sneak method to cut costs is to organize a weekday wedding. This may sound sneaky, but the results are uncompromising. The guest list, as mentioned, comes down and brings down the costs along with it. What matters most is whether the people you love and who love you are present to give you their blessings. Good wishes go a long way to help you set up a new life, which ostentatious displays do not guarantee.
