Our Simply Val Stefani collection has a wide range of affordable lace wedding dresses that can fit every type of bride’s personal style, meaning that you can still have the dress of your dreams!
Before we get started on finding the perfect gown though, we’ve included some additional things to consider to make your wedding that much more affordable.
Affordable Wedding Ideas
Planning a wedding can seem stressful, especially when it comes to finances. But by finding a worthwhile venue and food selection along with creating your own DIY wedding details, you’ll be able to have the wedding of your dreams.
Location, location, location. Where you choose to tie the knot and host the reception can really make or break your wedding budget. According to Brides, 40 percent of a wedding budget is set aside just for their venue. Not only does it serve as the backdrop to say “I do” but can also determine the extra factors that follow after picking a location- food, theme, party, and even your dress. Which is why our top picks are something a little more intimate- courthouses, backyard weddings, and restaurants- these are some of our favorite location ideas!
Downtown City Courthouse: Having a city hall wedding doesn’t necessarily mean needing to elope. Designed for the more intimate bride and groom, you can still tie the knot with close friends and family beside you. Getting wed here typically includes a small fee for the ceremony and an additional cost for your marriage license. Depending on which state you plan to get married in, costs for a city hall wedding can vary.
Backyard Wedding: Utilize your surroundings and opt for a backyard wedding, after all home is where the heart is. By planning a backyard wedding, you’ll be less stressed from having to find and book a venue months in advance and also save money as there won’t be a need to set a huge budget aside just for a venue, leaving you to have more freedom to put your funds in other details.
Restaurants and bars: Go for something a little more casual and laid-back and rent out a private dining room or possibly the whole facility at your favorite restaurant, bar, or eatery. A location with services including food, tables, chairs, utensils, and possibly even entertainment is a deal you can’t compare to. Instead of hiring outside or third-party vendors, you’ll be saving a huge amount of money by having it bundled into one location.
Inexpensive DIY Wedding Ideas
It’s the little things that add up together that can really make your wedding budget increase. Some couples may be surprised that details like invitations, flowers and decor end up making a huge portion of their wedding budget. Lucky for you, our Pinterest board of DIY wedding ideas is filled with countless ideas that will make your wedding unforgettable yet cost-friendly
Online Wedding Invitations: Instead of sending out costly save the date cards, let your guests rsvp online by creating a wedding website. Include time, date, locations, and any other important details you need your guests to know. This won’t only save you money on printing and mailing but also ensures that guests won’t lose your rsvp cards, that way you won’t have to worry about any invites getting lost in the mail!
DIY Wedding Decor: Now, let’s talk about decor. It may seem overwhelming to set a big budget on decorations that you’re only going to be using for one day. But after all, this is your wedding and you should have every detail you’ve always wanted. Create eye-catching DIY wedding centerpieces that are perfect for your special day. By making your own pieces, you won’t need to go through the hassle of hiring outside vendors that are high-cost and require non-refundable deposits. And instead of having a florist, learn how to make a DIY wedding bouquet yourself! Not only is this easy to recreate but you’ll also be able to make the bouquet of your dreams.
Budget-friendly Wedding Favors: Having wedding favors doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to spend an excessive amount on them. Gift your guests with items like, homemade baked goods, soaps, or even something sentimental like a thank you note. You can avoid the hassle of needing to order gifts and pay for shipping fees when you can just create these items yourself. You’ll also have much more meaning when you hand them out to your guests.
You can even make this a fun event with your bridesmaids and have a DIY wedding decor party! You won’t only be saving money but also creating fun bonding experiences with your bridal party!
