Prices vary. You can act like Drew Barrymore, who previously appeared on the red carpet with a $ 20 dress from a second-hand shop. And maybe you buy for 2 – 3 thousand pounds. If you head to the wedding shops and fashion houses, do not expect to find a cheap and acceptable option. Rather, be creative. After all, it does not even have to be white (before Queen Victoria, the white dresses were carried to funerals and were considered unacceptable for a wedding, but her majesty was creative and alternative).

With enough space for all guests, including: close friends and grandparents, grandmothers, aunts and uncles and, in

general, the family to the fourth knee. And some other acquaintances and colleagues, and some of the neighbors, as well as the bartender from the neighboring café, because he is a nice person. You do not have to make your wedding in a very intimate circle, but scratch at least half of your current list. If someone is offended, it’s his problem, that’s your wedding. Then choose the right place to eat and drink only people who are really important to you.

Same as above. Do not rely on the fact that all guests have smartphones and will snap to shoot. First they will eat, drink, dance, and ride, and if they think and shoot, it will not be something to fit in.

But put the condition to emphasize the work, not the coupon. It has already been said that wedding and youth are once, you will need a documentary memory of that. As for video capture, it is at your discretion, but if you question the married people around you, it would be surprising and 5% of them have ever seen the video with the wedding video …

Decoration and cake

and romantic thing, but sometimes they are too expensive. The cake may be more modest, and for decoration you can talk to the restaurant or make it with the help of friends.

Separately, you will have the cost of: The obligatory charge for the civil (and church) and the rings, the semi-obligatory make-up and the hairstyle, as well as the optional ones – invitations and gifts for guests, traveling, ritual materials (cakes, meats, garters, etc.). Look for online ideas how to make yourself a part of it yourself.

Here are some tips on how to deal financially

Start saving now. If you are just planning or even wondering, then you have plenty of time. Restrict shopping and shopping by discounts, reduce entertainment costs, and get your friends into plans, they will fully understand you.

Finally, if you need, take a same day loan. You may find last-minute gaps. Besides adding the budget, you can even organize your whole wedding.
