    Hi just joined today. Seems to be a lot of information it's kinda hard to find my way round. I'm planning my own wedding at my local church hall so I have to sort everything myself on quite a low budget. Max 4,000 any pointers for money saving or stress free diy. Also unfortunately my wedding clashes with the Saturday evening mass and the priest has asked that I stop my reception for one hour to allow for this to happen.

    Hey :) congratulations on your upcoming wedding. I am doing a few DIY bits myself to save money and also to have that special touch. I found best thing to do is decide exactly what you want and then look at how much it will cost, then if you need to cut back in some things so you can have what's most important. Think of a theme or even the co,our your having and go from there. You can do lots yourself stationary, centrepieces other decks ect... What sort of food are you having? And do you know what sort of deco your leaning towards? And depends if your crafty or not coz if you are ur be able todo a lot more yourself. I'd ask if you can set the room up day before wedding so your not having to do it on your wedding day, and that's strange for them to ask you to stop for 1hr, do they want you to attend the mass or just turn music off? If it's turn music off you could spend that time doing lanterns or something outside?

    Hi there's a DIY thread with tips on that but it's really doable for that cost.
    Could you take the wedding outside and carry on out there for an hour?

    I would chat with your OH and decide what the most important things are to you both for the wedding and concentrate your spending there because if you aren't really fussed about flowers for example, then there's no point spending out loads on them. X

    Hello, we have a budget of £3,000 and have found it really easy TBH. My mum and dad are paying for our catering though which is saving us approximately £600. It depends what kind of wedding you want though and what your willing to save on! Xx
