There are some things that still needs to get done irrespective of the prevalent economic situation and one of those is getting married. Probably you have finally said yes to the love of your life and all that is left for you to do is to pick a date for the wedding but the only obstacle that seems to be standing in the way is the fact that the country is currently struggling in the midst of a recession. You are bothered with how much more it will cost to get married in this type of situation and the subsequent financial implication of getting married now. We want you to know that you are definitely not the only bride dealing with this predicament and waiting for the recession to be over before getting married is just an unnecessary delay. This is why we have come up with some awesome ways for you to save cost on your wedding this period and still get married in style.
Know What Matters To you Most: The first step to making the most of your finance in this situation is to know what is most important to you. Are more concerned about making adequate food available for your guests? Will you be willing to go for a locally made wedding dress/suit instead of a designer brand? Is your reception venue very paramount to the whole effective you want your wedding to create?. You will have to pick three things you know you can’t cut back on then minimise cost on every thing else. That way its a win-win situation for you.
Talk To Family Members Who Can Assist You: As bad as the economy is, there are still a few people who still have your back. Talk to this few people and ask them how they are willing to support you. You don’t have to be shy about it either, that is why they are family and their response will either be a yes or a no.
Keep The Ceremony Simple: Some cultures in Nigeria requires several ceremonies that eventually builds up to the grande finale i.e the wedding itself. Having your introduction, engagement and traditional wedding separate from the wedding eventually leads to more cost for you. A simple way of cutting cost is to do everything together on your wedding day. Though this can be a little stressful, it is achievable if properly planned and at the end of the day cost is reduced.
Cut The Number Of Guests: Another way of reducing cost is by reducing the number of guests you invite and making the ceremony an ‘invitation only’ wedding. This way you can cut back on how much you spend on catering and at the same time cater properly for those who come.
Rent Your Wedding Dress: If you are not averse to wearing a dress someone else must have gotten married in then renting a wedding dress is a good alternative to buying one.At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you get married in a ceremony you will always remember and be glad about.
