- Affordable wedding plan
The common mindset considers wedding and affordable to be an absolute oxymoron, but times have changed and unless we change our thought patterns, it’s the dinosaurs’ destiny that waits.
Any wedding in the United States ranges between $20,000 and $40,000; add a bit of creativity and the figures can jump high or go real down. Now, most of us shall fall for option number two, but it’s tough to create cheap wedding ideas that shall be appreciated by the invited. This is where recommendations on beautiful visual impacts come handy and they can satisfy all without making you from spending a fortune.
- Cheap wedding flowers
If you cannot cut down on the wines, then do it on the flowers. Here, you must follow the age-old rules set by the laws of supply and demand; that translates to what is not easily available shall come for a greater price. Therefore, seasonal flowers can save your wallet from being drained; off-season flowers can make your budget go haywire.
Next, it is about the general style and color scheme. Flexibility is the keyword here; even if you dislike certain ones, opt for them to match a certain design or a color scheme. However, you may cut the costs further by holding your wedding during December; the Christmas season itself keeps a church decorated. And if you are planning for a wedding near to or on the Valentine’s Day, be ready to shell out a fortune.
Regarding the larger floral arrangements (e.g. on an altar), these are viewable from a distance; therefore, it shall be unwise to invest on expensive flowers. Or make a big investment on the arrangement but hold your wedding amidst a park or a lush garden; the flowers that way shall come free.
You can save a lot of money by choosing Carnations; the blooms – packed together and stems and greenery removed – provide quite a striking appearance. Else, party rental suppliers are always there to rent you large potted plants that are so famous for filling visually a lot of space.
Search for them (as well as for the florists) online; these usually offer a price lower than traditional marketplaces while ensuring the same quality. And if you are not too savvy about the prep work (cleaning, trimming and keeping them alive), a few dollars extra can let you hire decorators who shall add the extra colors to your wedding.
