Go pre owned.
Going for used stuff isn’t as bad as you think. Some of these things can be charming, even. You just need to choose accordingly and you just need to make sure that you have everything checked out the right way while you are at it. Visit used shops. They can be physical shops in your local or online ones. There are a lot of choices that you can check out if only you are patient enough to go through with them in the first place when it all comes down to it. Pre owned stuff from wedding dresses to jewellery and even to other stuff such as furniture and décor for the wedding day have a story behind them and now you are making them your own. This is not a small thing for you to have to go through with at the end of the day. Hire out the best wedding photographer so that you have great photos of your wedding day to boot. Plus, you of course get to save up on a lot of money while you are at it and have things sort out and work out the right way while you are at it.
Include non traditional elements.
One of the best examples when it comes to this would normally apply to the wedding décor both for the ceremony and for the reception. You don’t have to go for floral arrangements and centrepieces all of the time. If you are getting married by the beach, instead of opting for flowers, why not go for seashells inside mason jars as your centrepieces instead? There are a lot of materials and elements that you can tap into and make the most out of at the end of the day. You just need to get them figured out and get them talked about with your wedding planner and event coordinator at the end of the day. Don’t be afraid to experiment a little and to go ahead and explore what your options are. The worst thing that could come out of it is you shooting them down and deciding that they aren’t for you and for the wedding that you are trying to plan out. The best thing that you can get out of it is that you have something unique and memorable that the best wedding photographer on deck will be able to make the most out of.
Go for an online purchased dress.
Online stores can be whimsical and practical at the same time. You just need to make sure that you do it well in advance so that you have enough time left for alterations and other modifications that you need to do in order for the dress to fit you perfectly like a glove. Having the right fit is far more important than any embellishments that you can tack on so think about that and try to prioritize that over everything.
Local food trucks in lieu of pricey caterers.
They only charge for the food that they actually give out and they can set up anywhere, whether it is a barn or forest wedding or even one out in the backyard.
