Weddings for a thousand dollars

During the excitement of the Wedding Planning process we sometimes forget that the most important part of the Wedding is the magical life to people are spending together after the Ceremony and not the Party itself. So in light of that here are some great ideas to make the Marriage the focus of your wedding and accomplish it in the most inexpensive way possible.

Ceremony
Whether or not you are truly religious you can have a wedding ceremony take place at your local church. Most church fees can be waived for members of the congregation who are in need and truly want to be joined in Holy Matrimony. And even if you had to pay for the rental it is miniscule compared to the cost of a Ceremony site at a Reception Venue. Cost 0-350

Reception
Ask around your friends and families and search for the biggest house or yard and see if you can use it to have your reception at. You can have a buffet, set up a sound system and attach an Ipod or CD player. You don't need to even have too many tables. You can rent everything you need for 100 guests for under $300.

Wedding Cake
Make your own wedding cake. Simply buy an extra amount of frosting. Shop online for a cake topper and buy three different size cakes. Use toothpicks to stabilize each tier or pins. Add a piece of Cardboard over the Stabilizers and put the next size cake on. Use the extra frosting to cover the cardboard and getting some icing to detail the base of each layer. Add the Cake topper you found online. Voila instant Wedding Cake. All for under $100 and if you take your time or have an artistic friend it can look great.

Remember that if you have the money and WANT to spend it a Wedding can be as expensive as you want. If you are on a budget or realize the most important part is the actual Marriage then cut the items you don't need and insert some of these ideas, you will have a great wedding day either way.

ou hate spending a lot of money for only one day? Your partner agree on this?

You think it is better to save money for starting your future with your partner? I attended to some weddings and all of them were less than $ 1000.

Follow up and you will find 5 tips for an inexpensive wedding:

Decide first what is most important to you? Having all your family and friends there? The food and drinks? Your outfit? The location? When you have done your decision move on from there.

1.How to get cheap wedding invitation?

Use your computer and make your own invitations cards. It is not expensive and in addition personalized. If you are not so familiar with graphic and designing, I am sure you will have a friend, who can do it professionally. Even the name cards on the tables can be made by you.

2.What to wear?

Of course you can go in straight to wedding shop, but there you will find only expensive dresses. When you want to save money on it, go in a second hand shop. There you will get dresses in excellent condition. Usually they are used only once. Who care's?

Alternative you can also hire your wedding dress for less money.

3.Where to get married?

The venue might by very important to you. You have a big choose to get your location for under $100.

Search for a nice big room in your area for hire. In same cases bars and restaurants are welcoming private functions.

Additional you will find Community halls for hire, which are normally cheaper than other opportunities.

Ask your council, any club or the secretary of church. I am sure you will find your cheap wedding place very quickly. Usually all of my suggested locations have everything you need for your inexpensive wedding: chairs, tables, reception, a kitchen, a bathroom and toilets.

Be carefully, that the wedding place you booked, allows music at all time.

The best saving: Change your wedding to outdoor and use the garden of your parents, friend or relatives .When there are not enough chairs and tables available, you have only to hire those. Make sure, that the weather will be beautiful for your special day.

4.Where to get food and drinks?

You have only ask your guests, if the are willing to help you and bring some prepared food to your wedding party.

May be some of your guest are willing to help you, to prepare a nice dinner for you and your guests or your parents are organizing a catering for you.

When your mother in law (ore someone else) is a good baker, ask her to prepare a beautiful three-tier homemade cake. That can be her wedding gift.

You will get your drinks at any supermarket or liqueur shop at low costs. May be some friends or relatives will be a barman for this day and want to service your guests.

If you see the point of saving money for your wedding, hopefully these tips will help you and it is better than starting of a marriage in debt, which creates unneeded stress from the start.

Be good prepared and make your wedding plan, so that all parts work together. Enjoy your savings and get a financial better start for your life.
