Planning a wedding, and in particular a beach wedding, is not an easy task and it can get very expensive if it is not done carefully. There are so many items to consider that if you don’t follow a detailed plan, costs can start to sum up, and you can end spending a little fortune. In this article, we will try to present 5 tips to keep your wedding on a low budget.

1. Keep the number of guests under a certain number.

To have a low number of guests can be something difficult to achieve in a traditional wedding because if the wedding is celebrated in your local church and the reception is also in your home town your guest list tend to increase. On the other hand, if your wedding is celebrated on a beach, where guests need to travel to attend, decreases the number of guests naturally.

2. Don’t buy the most expensive dresses

Wedding dresses are undoubtedly the biggest expense in a wedding. However, if you are celebrating a beach wedding, you don’t need to buy an expensive dress. In fact, the wedding dress does not need to be a wedding dress. Any elegant, white dress can be suitable for this occasion, and of course this type of dress will be cheaper than a traditional wedding dress.

3. Have a light lunch

A beach wedding celebrated in the early evening is advisable to keep the food costs low. If your wedding is at noon, you will need to offer a complete lunch and the same if the celebration is at night. You can offer a light lunch based on salads in the evening, keeping the costs low.

4. Don’t hire a professional photographer

In the past, hiring a professional photographer was indispensable to have decent photos. However, in these days there are great digital cameras, and almost everybody has one. You can hire a student photographer or you can ask one of your family members to take the photographs. In addition, after the wedding , you can ask other guests to share their photos with you.

5. Create homemade invitations

Traditional invitations can also be expensive. However, beach weddings allow you to create homemade invitations instead of buying traditional invitations. You can be creative, buying only the stationary and printing them in you own printer.
