Are you wondering what are the best ways to pay for a wedding? Look no further! We have it covered.
#1 Worry about the money coming in, not the money going out
Look at the money you’re bringing in, and consider whether you need to get a side job. Whether it be gardening, dog walking or selling things that you’ve made. It doesn’t have to be a fully fledged business but something that’ll top up your wedding fund (even if it’s only a couple of hundred quid.) You’ll soon see the benefits.
#2 Get a secondary job
Whether it’s increasing your hours at work, taking on another part time job or doing some cleaning in the mornings. It may be tiring but it’s a small sacrifice if you think about how much money you could save within a short amount of time.
#3 Recalculate your monthly outgoings
Are you paying for a gym membership but never make it to the gym or do you have an all singing, all dancing sky package you could do without? Whatever your expenses, look at ways to cut them back and this way you’ll be able to save a huge chunk of cash! Perhaps change your energy provider to a company with more reasonable rates or car share for a while instead of paying for two cars. Believe it or not, these simple cut backs really stack up.
#4 Recalculate your daily outgoings
If you’re paying out £3.50 per day on a cup of coffee, you may be shocked to find out that it equates to £1,277.50 per year which would easily pay for your wedding dress without even eating into your savings!
#5 Take out a loan
Before deciding on taking out a loan, make sure you can easily afford the monthly repayments otherwise it’s not worth the stress it will cause you. If the monthly installments are easily affordable then it’s an option that’s well worth considering.
#6 Settle for something more realistic
Do away with the likes of Pinterest and ask yourself what it is you really want. If you’re not that fussed on getting married in a grand hall, there are plenty of stunning restaurants with incredible views that don’t even charge a room hire fee which could slash thousands off your overall spend.
