The perfect wedding: It’s not about how much you spend

| 0 comments

Many couples who plan a wedding often fixate far too much on the cost. They often research how much a wedding should cost and how much they should pay to ensure that it is absolutely spectacular. They fail to realise that the cost isn’t the most important factor here. In fact, there are various aspects of a wedding that are more important and won’t necessarily lead to higher costs overall. Let’s look at a few of the examples of how you can make your wedding special without spending a fortune.

Write Your Own Vows

You can use traditional vows if you like but writing them is far more personal and meaningful. You might say you’re just not good with words, but you don’t need to be a poet to write fantastic wedding vows. You can, if you wish, quote a famous poem that speaks to you and echos how you feel about your partner. Or alternatively you may want to use your own words for the ceremony. It doesn’t have to rhyme, it doesn’t need to be a masterpiece. If the words you say come from the heart, it will add a great deal to your wedding.

Choosing The Right Team

It does take a team to pull a wedding together. There are lots of different parts that need to fit together to create the perfect day. That includes hiring the right team. You might think that hiring the right team means getting the most expensive services for your wedding but that’s not always the case. Not only will a small company cost less, it’ll give you a personalised service, Take wedding photography. Obviously, you want a skilled photographer, but if you’re having a destination wedding this can be hard to find. Finding a specialist company in the country you’re getting married in, like Vittore Buzzi in Italy, for example, will provide the best experience for you and your guests and can capture images of the day to last a lifetime.

Don’t Cry A Hundred Tears

Planning a wedding can actually be rather stressful, and you might find that by the time the big day comes around you are emotionally and physically exhausted. It’s like planning for a big holiday. After all the penny squeezing, planning and preparations, the holiday can hardly seem worth it once you get on the plane. That’s why through the planning stages of your wedding, you should make sure that you remember why you’re getting married and keep it fun. Remember, there are lots of great parts of wedding planning like cake tasting (and getting freebies at wedding fairs!) so make the most of it. The last thing you want is for either of you to be stood at the altar on the big day thinking ‘phew, it’s finally over!’

Choosing The Right Best Man And Maid Of Honor

These are two key roles in your wedding. They’ll be in charge of keeping things in order, providing emotional support and of course planning the two big parties before the big day. As such, choosing the right people for these roles is actually rather crucial. If you have the wrong people standing beside you on the day and providing the speeches and toasts later, it really can completely ruin the ceremony.

So there you have it, there are plenty of important elements of your wedding to think about that aren’t related to how much it will cost at all. What made your own wedding extra special? Leave me a comment below to let me know 🙂
