Your friends and relatives can help you with the planning. However, at some point you will need a specific tool, platform or app that will make your life easier. Look for the most cost-effective one that can assist you in managing not just the budget but also the travel and RSVP details.

Therefore, this is also one of the fastest ways to lower your wedding cost. Decide well. Knowing who to invite can be emotional and meticulous.
3. Timing matters a lot.
When are you planning to get married? Your chosen date and season can impact your wedding budget, in a negative or positive way. Why not choose an off-season date? Doing so would cut your venue costs significantly. Moreover, choosing a Sunday or Friday event as opposed to a Saturday night celebration can make a huge budget difference.
4. Think about your wedding menu.
Contemplate on cocktails, and everything that will happen in the wedding reception. Why not turn it into a cocktail night with awesome drinks? Choose the best appetizers and music possible for that special night. If you love desserts, try considering a “dessert” occasion. I’m sure a lot of your guests will appreciate plenty of chocolates more than formal, sit-down meals.
At the end of the day, no matter how big or small your budget is, trust yourself that you can make it. You can successfully plan your wedding! With great creativity, flexibility and meticulous planning, you can make this very special event even more memorable.
