Your wedding is no doubt a day that you have been looked forward to for as long as you can remember and now that the time has come for you to finally start planning your big day, you must have started to realise that all the little details that you had planned for your big day are going to cost a lot more than you would have expected. The sad truth is that weddings cost a lot of money and you need to be creative in order to host a wedding party that is still perfect while not breaking the bank or spending every cent that you have saved up.
Get married at home
It is important for you to choose a unique wedding venue for your big day and sometimes, that unique venue is your own home. Weddings are traditionally held at big function halls or wedding venues that cost a lot of money. In truth, it is unnecessary to spend big money on a wedding venue when you can host a beautiful intimate party in your own home. Having a party at home means you will save thousands of money in venue costs and you can also have more elements to make your party extra special.
If you find that you home is not big enough to host your wedding party, an alternative would be a waterfront venue that istraditionally not considered a wedding venue. You can have your party by the side of a lake or a river in your town providing an excellent natural backdrop for your wedding and a venue that will make for some gorgeous pictures. In most cases, these areaswill be owned by your local council or your government and you will not be charged for using the venue provided you clean up the area and hand it back exactly as it was handed to you.
You venue itself will provide a theme for your wedding. If you choose to have a wedding party by the lake, you can choose to have your whole party water themed and have your party colours match the venue itself. It is important for you to keep your theme and your decorations simple in a beautiful venue such as this in order to avoid having your decorations over power the natural beauty of the venue. Sometimes, all it takes to create the perfect wedding décor is a few fairy lights and a few lanterns to light the venue and accentuate the natural beauty of the surroundings.
