In the run up to your big day, it’s easy to get swept up in the planning process. But remember, your wedding day signifies the beginning of your lives together. Start as you mean to go on with our top tips for keeping your dream wedding within budget!
It’s The Little Things
Planning a luxury wedding on a shoestring? Our luxury pagoda marquees hire prices start at under £500 and with marquee sizes from just 6x6m these are perfect for a small intimate ceremony or summer garden reception. Remember, a big guest list doesn’t always call for a big venue. Choose the appropriate marquee size that will comfortably accommodate your guests and not the largest or smallest one you can squeeze into your space. A sparse marquee will make even the most well-attended soirée feel empty, yet, get a marquee that is too small and there will be no space for dinner and dancing.
Bag the old, new, borrowed and even blue all in one fell swoop, by going vintage with your venue and outfit. Scour vintage shops for clothes and accessories, you might even come across the dress of your dreams that you wouldn’t find on the high street. Visit local auction houses where you can pick up some beautiful antique furniture pieces and rustic accessories for a steal to use as unique vintage wedding decorations! Our traditional marquees are a stunning vintage feature in themselves, with canvas walls and hessian guy ropes they ooze luxury without the need for expensive decor.
Be Wardrobe Wise
Ladies, we are all guilty of using the famous tagline “I have nothing to wear!” Even though it’s rarely true. Wear a pair of shoes you already have (and love!) because if you’re wearing a long dress, nobody is going to see them anyway. Keep an eye on auction sites for bridesmaid dresses and accessories, most people only ever wear these once so there really are some bargains to be had in the wedding section!
Whatever you do, don’t skimp on the photographer. When the day is all over and the honeymoon hangover is setting in, your wedding photographs will be there for you to enjoy for the rest of your lives together. A great photographer can make a low-budget wedding look expensive and a bad one can make your extravagant bash look cheap and tacky. So save on those only-wear-em-once stilettos and invest in those precious memories.
