Getting married is very exciting but unfortunately, it is also a very expensive state of affairs and for this reason, what should be the most important time of their lives is often the worst and the most stressful time of their lives for many brides and grooms because of the very high costs involved with everything that has anything to do with weddings. However, it does not necessarily have to be this way because if you are willing to step outside of the box, you should be able to have a really nice and memorable wedding without having to break the bank and without having to spend all of your savings because you will need your savings for your new life with your partner.
Dismiss all of the traditions and the rituals
Although you may have heard that as the bridal couple, you have to do certain things, all of these things are manmade and are not at all necessary for your wedding day. Your wedding day and your wedding party is simply a fun day where you commit to your partner for the rest of your life and this does not have to be a big grand affair with hundreds of people in a fancy five star hotel. You will notice that many wedding hair and makeup at Surfers Paradise will triple their price when they find out that you are getting married and that you want the make-up done for your wedding.
As such, you can do one of two things to save money. You can either do your make up yourself or have a friend do it for you or you can choose to go to the salon and get it done without telling them it is for your wedding and you will save a massive amount of money on it.Even when it comes to mobile hair and makeup you will have to spend a lot of money if it is for your wedding and therefore, choose to have a very simple hairstyle that you can do yourself for next to no money at all.
For your dress, step away from the traditional wedding dress and have a beautiful evening gown instead. You will find that you will be able to get better dresses that are very much more beautiful for a small fraction of the cost if you do not shop in the wedding dress section of the store because again, those are very expensive simply because the word wedding is added to it. This is the case with almost everything that you will need.
