Superstitions, norms, and rituals of the society have caused this mess upon people who can’t bear this expense. There are 7 budget-friendly wedding ideas that can make your wedding awesome. You will need a budget something under $2500 to be married.
Limit the number of guests
A lot of your wedding expense is depending on how much guests you are going to invite. A number of guests are going to affect many things like the size of the hall, food expenses, liquor expenses and other wedding requisites.

It will save you unnecessary effort as well.
Find the flexible reception hall

Thursday is best because your guest can take a leave of Friday followed by two weekend holidays. It will work for all of you. A common observance is that marriage halls have half prices in mid-week days in comparison to the weekend.
Arrange your own caterer
There will many reception halls that let you come with your own caterer. Use your contacts and you will find someone who could be ready to provide catering at reasonable rates.

Typical reception halls catered foods are very common and people are bored of eating the same food on every marriage. Ask your friend to make some alterations and your guests are going to love it a lot.

You will remember it for a long time. Consultation with your significant other is however important. In this way, you can cut the unnecessary expenditures and use it on important things. Maybe, later on, you could buy a standing desk for your home with wedding savings by the way who knows?
