How to Plan a Wedding: 5 Helpful Tips

Get creative and crafty.

Set an evening of crafting and cocktails with your friends. Why do you need to pay for centerpieces and other wedding decorations if you yourself can make them? A DIY wedding is challenging, but if you focus on it, you will surely get everything done on time.

Fix your wedding license.

A wedding license is one of the most important requirements you must not miss. You and your partner need this! Head to the courthouse more than a week before the special day to deal with the paperwork.

Set a budget and a wedding date.

Without a budget, you wouldn’t be able to start the wedding planning process. Set a realistic budget, and the date and location. Depending on your budget, you might not land your first choice. That’s okay. There is always a date and venue that will work for your budget.

Buy your wedding attire.

Wearing that beautiful bridal tiara from Malaysia would be perfect, but if it’s too expensive, consider a cheaper alternative. Look at upscale consignment stores, department stores and vintage shops. If you are lucky, you can ask a relative or a friend to custom-make a gown for you at an affordable price.

Think outside the wedding vendor box.

Since you have a limited budget, you might not be able to book your area’s top wedding vendors. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make your wedding a beautiful celebration. You can always ask for the help of your loved when it comes baking a wedding cake, and pulling off a DIY wedding.
