How to Make Your Modern Wedding More Affordable30 June 2017
Looking for inspiration? Perhaps you want a modern twist but are unsure on popular trends? Well, UKbride has the perfect styled shoot to help you out!
Food & Drink
If you want to keep it classy but want to keep spending on cakes and catering to a minimum – it is one of the most expensive parts to a wedding – afternoon tea and macarons is the perfect solution.
Details & Decoration
It’s the little things that matter. We suggest going to car boots and vintage junk shops and picking up great finds. There are loads of things you can collect for your tables and venues that will make a huge difference the overall look and style (and it will be loads cheaper!).
Handbags & Gladrags
For wedding dresses and suits, there is an easy way to reduce the cost and still look absolutely stunning. Don’t add so much detail and style to the gown, and you’ll understand the true meaning of less is more. Our model in this stunning Maggie Sottero dress is the perfect example of this.
If you’d prefer a little more detail, we love the white bridal Henna hand pattern used in the shoot; inexpensive jewellery!
Don’t scrimp on stationery with a modern wedding; it’s the first thing your guests see and needs to make a good first impression. Plus, stationery is a big element of contemporary weddings.
However, there are ways to cut costs down. Again, use less details, don’t emboss letters, do as much as you feel comfortable with yourself; you can still make it a DIY project but perhaps base it on a style you’ve seen before and make sure it’s as professional as possible.
Super cute kids holding super cute signs are also a necessity!
