When you think of weddings, you think of money and great expenses because weddings cost a lot of money. In fact, many people remain engaged for a very long time and put off their actual wedding because they cannot afford to host the wedding while others spend everything that they have while also going in to debt in a bid to throw a traditional wedding party. In some cases, it is even a competition to throw the best party and do better than the next person. However, a wedding does not have to be expensive at all. In fact, a wedding is just a party that you throw to celebrate making a commitment to your partner and this party can be anything that you want it to be. You are in charge ad you are not bound to do anything in particular and you are certainly not bound to following traditions or rituals.

Think out of the box

People spend the most amount of money on the wedding venues they choose because they choose big, famous hotels or big reception halls when in reality, you could save all of that money and have a small wedding party in your own home or at a friend’s home. You can have your wedding party on the beach or in someone’s garden and the truth is you can have just as amazing a party in any location. People have amazing creative wedding receptions without spending all of the money that they have and they still make a thousand memories.If you are getting married soon and you are on a tight budget, you will want to start looking for a location that you can use for free. There are many such locations available such as a church hall or a community center hall. Keep in mind that you can do magic with an empty room and you will be saving a lot of money on the hall, a little of which can be invested in to turning the empty hall in to a magical place. Once you have found a location, start looking online for inexpensive decoration ideas that you can use such as something as simple as fairy lights and tulle can transform any room in to a magical venue. For your catering, you can have someone at home such as your mother or some relations make some finger food that can be served at the wedding with drinks. The key is not to have fancy food but to have enough of food.
