Until relatively recently, luxurious weddings could only be enjoyed by a particularly wealthy people. These individuals could afford grand wedding cakes, luxury wedding invitations, incredible flower decorations, chauffeur services and – of course – a luxurious wedding car.
Thankfully though, things couldn’t be any more different today. Thanks to modern companies that offer competitive prices, as well as the power of the internet, it has become possible for smart grooms and brides-to-be to organise and enjoy an affordable luxurious wedding cars. Let’s see some clever tips for making the wedding of your dreams without breaking the bank:
Take your Time to Research the Market and Plan Your Budget
Any wedding ideas on a budget need both planning and smart research. In today’s markets, offers vary wildly, so it pays to research the market for the best deals. Finding exactly what’s right for your wedding is of paramount importance to cut back on costs, as many grooms and brides-to-be overspend on things they don’t really need at their weddings. Money can be wasted on excessive decoration, unused photo shoots, car hire time, assigning tasks that can be done by friends and family to experts and more. As you plan your budget more and more, new wedding ideas may come up, which may drastically reduce your budget. Do you really need a red carpet? How many bridesmaids will there be? Have you printed enough invitations or will you need an extra batch? The way you answer these questions (and many more) can make thousands of pounds worth of difference to your wedding budget.
Arrange Everything Well in Advance
Many grooms and brides-to-be are so caught up with the idea that they are soon to be married, that they leave arrangements and details for the very last minute. This attitude can be extremely costly and, if you want an affordable luxurious wedding, you simply cannot afford to NOT plan everything in advance. For example, wedding gown fittings are a must, and should be done at least twice before the actual wedding. If you need last minute tweaks on your gown, or change your mind because you didn’t have enough time to try the gown on yourself, you may be looking at double (or more) the costs of dressing the bride. As a rule of thumb, if you are still doing wedding arrangements in the same week as the rehearsal, you are probably too late to fix any mistakes without spending more than you would have originally.
Be Smart about What and How You Outsource
Wedding planning involves doing lots of things ourselves, but also using the services of professionals to help us realise our special day’s true potential. This is especially true for luxurious weddings, where some things just cannot be achieved without professional help. For example, you cannot expect a family member to prepare a luxury wedding cake unless they are a pastry chef; similarly, you can’t expect a friend to drive you to your luxury wedding unless they are a professionally trained chauffeur, with a top-tier luxury wedding car! You just cannot have a luxurious wedding without a prestige car to drive you there in style, and you cannot just bake a multi-tiered wedding cake in your house kitchen!
Do Some Things Yourself!
So, if wedding transportation and the wedding cake are two things that must be outsourced, things like wedding flower decorations and wedding planning can be done by family members who have a bit of time to spare. There are lots of useful resources for DIY wedding flower decorations, and anyone with some organisational skills can take up the task of planning the wedding through and through. You can also search online for wedding flower ideas, as well as tips on how to successfully plan a wedding.
Ask for Wedding Favours
Wedding days come once in a lifetime, and you deserve to have the best wedding you can. For that reason, it is important to ask for as many wedding favours as you can, from people you know that might be able to help you experience the luxury wedding of your dreams. If you are friends with a chef, a chauffeur, an experienced wedding planner, a flower decorator or any other person with experience in luxury weddings, just ask them to help you! Enlisting the help of a friend with experience can really make a difference in both your wedding budget and the final result. Experienced people often have tons of wedding ideas on a budget, which can also help you gain the affordable luxury wedding of your dreams.
