Planning a Wedding on a Budget of $1000
The problem with expensive weddings is that it can come back to haunt you if you can't afford it. As a result, planning wisely for your wedding is one of the best financial decisions the bride and groom can make.
Start With a Wedding Budget
First and foremost, when planning a wedding, consider starting a wedding budget. It can be in the form of a spreadsheet or a notebook. As long as you can keep it updated and organized, you'll be good to go. The spreadsheet can also work as a checklist for things-to-do.
Locating Inexpensive and Free Wedding Venues
In general, the most expensive item on the wedding budget is the venue. Therefore, to keep the budget under $1000, you'll need to pay special attention to it. Indeed, the venue should have enough space that you and your guests can enjoy the part. But, choose wisely by finding a venue that fits your budget - ideally, a free venue!
One place for a budget wedding is your local church. Indeed, churches across America charge little as $200 for up to 100 guests. And that often includes the organist, the costs to ring the bells, and basic church decoration.
