Wedding on a Budget: 5 Unique Planning Tips

Paper flower bouquets

Paper flowers are prettier and long lasting. These are cheaper alternatives to fresh flowers! If you want, you can order fresh flowers for you, the bride, and then paper flowers for the centerpieces and bridesmaids.

Instant photos

Settle for the Instax mini camera, instead of expensive photobooth services. Hiring a photobooth service is one of those wedding trends you wouldn’t want to jump into. There is no need to hire a team of photographers. A simple Fujifilm Instax mini camera can do the work. Depending on the number of guests, you can prepare 1 or 2 cameras, and lots of extra films.

Purchase a wedding dress at a less-traditional retailer.

It would be amazing to wear that beautiful wedding gown from that bridal shop in Kuala Lumpur. But, if you are on a strict budget, you may want to settle for a pre-loved gown from a less traditional retailer.

Public park wedding

Instead of booking a venue, consider saying “I do” on a beautiful home yard or public park. If you are lucky enough to have a friend or family member who is willing to share their backyard for your wedding event, take that offer. That will save you from the expensive costs of a typical wedding venue.

DIY wedding

Research on the best DIY wedding ideas! The more DIY decorations, the better. The thing here is that you need to arrange everything ahead of time. Even jam jars, tissue papers and other recycled materials are crucial to your venue. See to it that you test the DIY projects in small batches, to now how long every decoration would take.
