You have met the one in your heart and decided to get married. You are filled with enthusiasm and you are getting ready for this great day. There are many sites to help you in this wonderful endeavour. They point out the steps to take and give you tips!
However, before you embark on this magnificent project, it is best, as with everything you will achieve with your spouse, to stop and take time to reflect. This way, you will avoid a few mistakes that can strain your budget and tarnish the party!
Mistakes not to make :
Not agreeing on your common wishes right away.
Nowadays, the traditional wedding with celebration, white wedding dress, party and honeymoon is no longer the only possibility. Moreover, many differences can modulate this formula, depending on whether one insists more or less on the respect of traditions. For some, a barbecue in a barn will guarantee the authenticity of the celebration, while others will choose a castle and the setting up of a caterer.
From one formula to another, costs can vary greatly. So it is best to agree on the chosen formula and its different stages from the outset!
Do not set a precise financial envelope from the outset.
For an event that can involve very high costs, it is important to know from the outset how much money you have at your disposal. That way, you won’t leave in unpayable dreams and you will adapt your wishes to the real costs. You won’t have any unpleasant surprises. Many solutions exist or are being invented to celebrate this great day with dignity and within your budget!
Do not plan down to the last detail
It is not enough to know more or less what you want, because the details that are added can gradually increase the costs: whether or not to rent an old car, to decorate the party venue with flowers, not to look at the number of guests, to serve at the table, to make a firework display, to imagine a setting… In the actual course of the event, there is often a desire to add this or that detail that increases the festive touch, but adds to the expenses.
To foresee is to order, prioritize and estimate the costs!
Do not consider preparing it yourself
It is well known that what you do yourself is much cheaper than what you have done.
Nowadays, it is possible to find organisers who will take part in the realisation of your wedding party and even take care of it from start to finish for a large payment.
However, it is also possible to take care of many things yourself or with family and friends.
For example, guests can help with the buffet, the set-up or the service… Almost every moment of the party can be taken care of by good will, with a significant reduction in costs!
Going too late
Preparing for your wedding is therefore no easy task. In order to keep all the opportunities open, to have space to think and to move forward without too much stress, the ideal is to start the preparations at least a year in advance. Various sites offer a detailed and inspiring chronology.
If you start too late, you will close off a number of possibilities: party venues already booked, caterers already booked, … and therefore have to reduce your wishes or pay much more for them.
Do not consider funding assistance
Planning your wedding is therefore a major expense. But because it concerns a unique day, the memory of which will radiate throughout your life, aren’t you willing to do some crazy things? To cover these expenses, you must then look for original solutions. A financial intervention by the parents or family can help you not to give up your dreams.
It is also possible for you, in order to cover all the costs yourself, to resort to financing assistance by means of a collaborative credit. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that various individual investors are joining forces to help you achieve the marriage of your dreams? Rest assured, they are anonymous…you won’t have to invite them to the cocktail party!
Our platform mozzeno.com allows you to obtain in a few clicks a collaborative financing from 1250 GBP to 30000 GBP for a duration of 18 to 84 months. Your expenses indirectly financed by other individuals, an idea to dig!
