Create a Beautiful New Jersey Wedding on a Budget

Few people realize that having a beautiful wedding does not require spending their entire savings.

If you’re planning a wedding, learning where to reduce costs and how to budget will leave you with money to spare.

“There are numerous ways to have the wedding of your dreams without the nightmare of large bills,” said Michelle Perez, a wedding industry professional and owner of Knot Just Wedding Events, a Garwood New Jersey event planning service. “You just need to be resourceful.”

Here are some tips from Michelle on how to create a designer wedding on a budget.

* For something old, wear a vintage wedding dress. You can save a lot on a wedding gown by shopping in consignment or vintage shops, in newspaper classifieds and on the Internet. You also can update your mother’s, grandmother’s or aunt’s wedding dress with a new neckline or hemline, beading or lace.

* Print your own invitations. There are many wedding accessories that can be made instead of bought – the veil, the centerpieces and even the invitations. Do-it-yourself kits are available to help create a designer appearance without the designer price tags.

* Use a limousine. Contact local limousine services like Action Limousine to rent a luxury vehicle with a professional driver. Many limo service companies have vehicle fleets with more than enough room for the married couple.

* Keep the flowers simple. Instead of hiring a florist, contact a floral-design school and hire students to provide you with flower arrangements. You also can create your own flower arrangements. Buy one color of flower in bulk. It creates a visual impact while saving money. Contact a wholesale florist; many will sell flowers directly to the consumer.

Lastly, a professional wedding planner is well worth her weight to ultimate save you money on every aspect of the wedding planning, They are worth the investment.
