Weddings during the summer season are vibrant, colorful and fun and there are so many summer wedding ideas that you can choose from. Summers are full of shine and warmth, glow and beauty and this is the time for using and experimenting with all sorts of colors.
Although weddings are normally an expensive affair but that doesn’t always mean that all weddings have to be lavish when you can cut down on your expenses and still have a lovely ceremony with a decent budget too.
You can have a cozy ceremony in your family member’s or even a friends backyard, the one who has an expansive and a beautiful yard. If you are quite close to any of your family member or your friend, then you wouldn’t have to shell out a penny apart from mowing the lawn.
A green and fresh flower garden with a pretty little water fountain would be an addition and will ooze out a fresh and mellow summer feel for the guests with summer wedding colors in bloom as this small venue can be as lovely as renting an outdoor professional venue.
Cheap summer wedding ideas do not imply that your wedding would be a second grade affair – you just have to be more receptive of other ideas and put your creativity and imagination to use.
Rather than engaging a professional catering service from outside for your wedding, you can get assistance from your loved ones, who are excellent cooks. It will greatly reduce your overall budget.
Stick with summer wedding flowers which are seasonal because importing flowers anytime always increases the budget as non-seasonal are expensive than the seasonal ones. You can pick two kinds of colorful flowers for your summer wedding bouquets.
Artificial flowers like the ones made out of silk are cheaper than the natural flowers and look just as beautiful.
Cakes in a square shape are normally costlier per slice wise than the round cakes. There are many people at the wedding who might not eat the cake at all, so you can let the baker you hired have a small figure of guests than the exact number you’re expecting to be there at the wedding.
For example if you are expecting about 150 guests, then ask the baker to bake a wedding cake for about a 100 or 110 people, which will really cut your cost and it’s one of the best summer wedding ideas for cost cutting. Cutting the cake is a ceremonial event, so the slices per guest can be kept modest.
Instead of employing professional help for the decor, do the summer wedding decorations on your own, by involving your friends or family and apart from lowering your costs you will have a lot of fun doing so.
Get the wedding photo and video package combined as it will cost you less than booking both the things separately, whether you book it from the same or different studios. Print the placement cards and invitation cards from your own computer system. The stationary for the same can be purchased from any good stationery supply shop. You will save a modest amount.
If you have a receptive and an open mind, there are so many affordable summer wedding ideas for you to pick from. Spending lavishly does not always ensure that you’ll have a stunning event.
The effort, love and time you put in to the process is what that’s going to matter by the end of it and so does the presence of your loved ones.
