Some couples have fears of getting married not because they are afraid of commitment but because they are not sure whether they can handle the expenses or not. What they miss is the fact that while tying the knot involves money, there are ways on how to do it without breaking the bank.
To know what some of these ways are, read the following tips from Ms. Mavie Macalindog of Mavie Events Management. Equipped with ample knowledge and experience as a professional event coordinator, she is happy to help couples pull off their dream weddings without having to get broke shortly after saying “I do”.
1. Be careful with your emotions. Don’t be overwhelmed with what you see online.
Getting ideas from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter posts may be cool. However, looking at too many photos may urge you to go for things you do not need at all, which means unnecessary expenses. Also, these posts may push you to aspire for the kind of wedding you cannot afford anyway. According to Ms. Mavie, it is best to always start planning your wedding with some sort of a reality-check.
2. Set a budget and stick to it as much as possible.
Budgets are created for a reason. You are supposed to stick to it, right? This means that you have to adjust according to it and not the other way around. Changing it every now and then just to accommodate some new items on your list will defeat its purpose—unless those items are really necessary.
3. Trust your wedding coordinator.
Wedding coordinators know what they are doing. You can trust them when it comes to different things. They can help you choose the right wedding suppliers for your peg and budget. They can also guide you as you make the biggest decisions concerning your wedding. With them around, you can avoid committing major mistakes that may mean additional cost.
