Wedding planning in Washington DC
It takes a bit of ingenuity in these difficult times to arrange a wedding “by the book”, but it is not impossible. It can cut costs without affecting the beauty of the event and without compromising on what the couple wants for their day. I will give some tips about how to be flexible concerning the wedding planning, for having a perfect day, no matter the budget.
The most common tactic for reducing the cost of a wedding is to focus on what you want, not what you think you should have or wear. Whatever a magazine says about what is in trend for weddings, or what your aunts want, no one force you to do something that you don’t want to. You don’t have to spend lots of money on the dress, make a cake with three floors, and not even match your flowers from the hair with the groom’s tie. These details don’t determine the beauty of a wedding, but the fact that you and your beloved one are celebrating your love and take a commitment one to the other.
The amounts for rental at most halls for wedding reception are big. Before paying an amount think and pick a local for your level to avoid spending a lot of money. Try to avoid having to schedule a wedding day very desirable for such events. Saturday evening, for example, is always crowded – restaurants, reception halls, all are rented. In Spring, summer and early autumn are the seasons really hunted for weddings. If you schedule your wedding “off season”, you are more likely to get a discount.
Decrease the number of guests. You can do from the wedding a family event, which will be invited only close relatives and, possibly, some dear friends. You can invite a group of people at the reception at the restaurant, then a larger group of friends to your home for a larger party, with drinks and snacks only. You have friends, ask them to help choose the best solution for wedding dress, look good on the Internet lists of suppliers and find the best solutions for everything. Always offer to pay, but do not be surprised if they will offer their services to a huge reduction or as wedding gift. Be careful though – if you feel that your friendship will be broken if any of these tasks will not come out perfectly, better address yourself to a specialist.
You don’t need a lot of money to be happy, to have a great wedding, you just need some creativity, friends and love. That’s all you need to plan a wonderful event.11
