Reduce your wedding expenses if you are low on the budget because it’s not worth the hassle. What’s the point of taking a bank loan or borrowing money from your family and friends? just to please few hundred people. In a country like ours, wedding at times is a load rather than a celebration. While there are all smiles on the faces of the family members, there is a lot going on inside their mind.

We are not saying that there is any harm in having an extravagant wedding. If you have enough and can afford when than you can do that by all means. However, what about the middle-class families. They are always worried as to what the society would think if they do anything less. Parents have to look after their children’s wish, the family, and the future in-laws.

Here’s why you should reduce your wedding expenses!

You can have a great honeymoon.

You end up spending all your money on the money and are not left with anything in your wallet. Later you decide to move your honeymoon ahead so that you can save some money. At times, you couldn’t save that and end up going nowhere. Also, if you are planning to travel within the country, you might end up saving more and plan an international trip.

Spend on yourself or something you dearly want.

You might have dreamt of having something, something you might not be getting as a wedding gift. Spend that money on getting those things or treat each other with something special. Well, you know how your family manages the household chores and it’s not easy to get everything you like whenever you want to.

How can you save that extra bucks!

Leave the mehndi …

Yes! you heard it right. You don’t have to spend so much or a little bit on this event. We are sure that your friends and cousins so wanted to show their dance moves but hey, you don’t have to take a financial pressure to see their dance moves. The standards of these events have gone up with the social media hype they got. Now you need a dance floor, special lights and a DJ to get a mehndi event going. If you pull all your strings, even then it takes more than 200 thousand or more to organize a decent mehndi function. What can you do with this amount of money?

You don’t have to invite everyone, it’s not a food fest. You can always keep your gathering limited to the closed ones. If you are asked by people who were not invited, you can always tell them it was a close family affair. However, you can give them small giveaways later so they just don’t feel left out.

Don’t go for a food fest. Two dishes are good enough to fill everyone’s stomach

No Box gifts, please!

This might sound western but there is nothing wrong with writing this on your invitation card. There is no shame in asking for cash only, you are not putting a price limit. Whatever they give, it will help you with a lot of things post-wedding. This money can help you get a lot of things done.
