Top 7 Cheap Wedding Ideas

Cheap wedding ideas can build up and seriously reduce your overall wedding bill. Wouldn't that be nice? There is nothing more special than a beautiful wedding. Except perhaps, a cheap, beautiful wedding. Below are the Top 7 cheap wedding ideas.

1. Start planning early
Even though we hear this about everything in our lives, it is especially important with weddings. You have the greatest chance of achieving the best price for things if you start early. Should you wait for a confirmed wedding date? No. Every little bit of planning you do now will save you money in the long run. This means getting out and interviewing reception venues, photographers and everything else. Interviewing early and getting price lists gives you the best chance of securing a good price later.

2. Make your own wedding invitations
Making your own invitations will save a truckload of money. All you need is some silver card, some semi transparent paper (with a nice design) that can be printed on, some ribbon and a hole punch. For perfect edges, when you are reducing the size of the invitations, a guillotine is useful.
Check wedding invitation samples on the web and word an invitation that you like. Print it onto the semi transparent paper. Guillotine the paper to the perfect size and make the silver card about half an inch wider. Use the hole punch and ribbon and attach the card on paper with a nice bow. This not only saves money, it's a lot of fun too.

3. Attend wedding trade shows
Most exhibitors at these trade shows will have discounted prices for attendees as a way to drum up business. Attending as many shows as possible gives you a great chance to secure a bargain priced photographer.

4. Make your own Unique Wedding Favors & wedding flowers
Stop spending thousands on those boring wedding favors. Go out to the local stationary store and purchase some small foldable boxes (with a pattern or color to match your wedding invitations). Purchase some good quality chocolates. Package the chocolates into the foldable boxes for your guests. DIY and create your own flower arrangements with a little bit of your time, colour and creativity. Decorate and style flowers to suit how you would want it to fit into your colour scheme.

5. Avoid batch booking
Avoid going to a wedding planner or similar service and booking everything at once. Even if these services look cheap you will pay somewhere along the line. Do everything yourself, save money and have fun.

6. Check the local classifieds
Check out DJs or bands in the local papers. Sometimes the best bands and DJs are the ones that cannot afford to advertise in the glossy wedding magazines. Remember, you can always ask for a demonstration performance first.

7. Register for the perfect gift...your honeymoon! Visit: www.honeyluna.com
One of the most expensive parts of a wedding is the honeymoon. One of the most boring presents you can receive is something for the kitchen. So, prior to sending your invitations, decide where you would like to go on your honeymoon and arrange a bridal registry at the travel agency. Your guests can now contribute to something you will really enjoy.

Amazing Wedding Planning

The Average Cost of a Single Wedding is Approaching $30,000. But It Doesn't Have to Be... In Fact, You Could Easily Slash Your Wedding Expenses As Much As 80% To Have the Exact Same Wedding!

"My Amazing Wedding Planning Method and Tools Will Guarantee You the Following"




  • Save 50%-80% of your entire wedding expense to have the exact same wedding. And it doesn't matter whether your wedding budget is $5,000 or $50,000.
  • Never forget even the smallest detail and you never have to worry about any possible disaster or blunder.
  • Save hundreds of hours managing all guests, budget, vendors, gifts, seating, honeymoon, and more...
  • Plan your wedding in the shortest, quickest time possible...whether you currently have a full-time job or only a couple months to go before the wedding.
  • All of the above without hiring a wedding planner

How much money can you put in your pocket if you saved just 10% on your wedding? It doesn't matter whether your wedding budget is $5,000, $10,000, or even $50,000.

Let's just say that your wedding budget is only $10,000. If you saved just 10%, it would give you $1,000 in savings.

But what if you could save 30%... 50%.... or even 80%?

Seems difficult or maybe impossible? Well, it's not... And that is exactly why I am here, to prove this to you.


I've just been there... I planned my entire wedding myself... And I had to work with a very limited budget... But ended up with a breathtaking wedding that many of my guests told me was the best wedding they've ever attended.

Want to check out a couple of the photos

taken on my wedding day? Click here...



But I can assure you my secret is unlike anything you have read or heard. You will be able to have that beautiful wedding you always wanted. AND... save a fortune in the process.

Without Having a Wedding in Your Backyard
Without Buying a Used or Cheap Quality Wedding Dress
Without Making Your Own Wedding Cake
Without Having Your Friend Taking the Wedding Photos
Without Negotiating with Wedding Vendors
Without Any "Cheap" Advice That You Will Normally Find in Wedding Books, Magazines, or Websites...


How ANYONE Can Easily Save $10,000
on an Average Wedding...

If you were to have an average wedding that costs around $27,000, I guarantee that you will be able to save at least $10,000.

That may sound like an enormous task for you, but it isn't. For example, if you could slash 50% on every wedding expense, the amount of money you save could easily be over $10,000. (Saving 50% off in the wedding market is easy. Click Here!
I'll tell you why in a moment)

That's exactly how I did it. I learned the methods and tricks where I could buy wedding items significantly lower than the normal cost. And pretty soon, the amount I saved collectively on all my expenses added up to be over $10,000.



That's Not All. Almost All Brides Pay Extra Dollars Without Even Knowing... Because They are Unsuspecting of the Stunts the Wedding Vendors Were Pulling

Few Common Tricks Wedding Vendors Use To Steal Extra Money From You...

Most vendors charge hidden fees that you cannot possibly imagine, such as, "dress try-on" fees, "cake-cutting" fees, "consulting" fees, "gasoline" fees for traveling, and much more.

They make you put down a deposit without any writing so that later they could steal your money.

They make you buy NOW by lying that some other bride is interested in the product and she will be making a deposit in any minute.

Many hotels buy food in bulk to save money and serve you frozen foods. We all know that food tastes worse when it is frozen.

They take off tags from wedding gowns made out of polyester and then lie that it's a luxurious fabric. That way they can easily transform a $500 dress to a $2000 dress.

You reserve a specific ballroom in a hotel for your reception. Just before the day, you find that the room has been changed to a small room, while the original ballroom was occupied by a bigger event.

A caterer refers you a great wedding band by saying all good things about them. So you hire them only to find out that they suck. What happens is that the caterer receives 10% commission of what you pay the band.

Bridal shops will markup their wedding items 20% higher then retail price than have it on 15% sale.

This Is Unlike Anything You've
Ever Seen Or Heard Before...!

I took everything that I have learned, and experienced, and also, every tip and trick that I sniffed out, and every gold-nugget of advice that I got from wedding "insiders" and created the ultimate, step-by-step wedding planning survival guide... Especially for those who have a low budget but still want to have a luxurious-looking wedding!

You will get practical, no-fluff advice with "battle-tested" inside tips, proven tricks and wedding planning secrets designed to avoid disasters, eliminate stress, and save you a bundle of money. (and no, you will NOT find anything like this in one of those $10-$30 wedding books you see on bookstores, magazine, or online stores)

Knowing what to do is the EASY PART, but knowing HOW to do it is the most important thing, which is exactly what "Amazing Wedding Planning" guide gives you.
