Money is something that exchanges hands every second of every minute of every day. We save and we spend. It brings us joy and immense pleasure but it is also our primary source of worry and headaches. But such is the ambiguity of life and the value of money and all the worldly things that money can buy in our lives that earning more money and saving money is a constant thought at the back of our minds no matter what we are doing. So let’s have a look at some of the biggest spending sprees in our lives and how we can minimize such costs.
The most important day in our lives. The day that changes everything for us in a split second. Although it revolves around that moment when the words ’’I do’’ are uttered, the whole process leading up to it can be a burden on your bank balance. There is just so much money spent on decorations, clothes, wedding accessories Australia and food that at the end of the day it leaves us bit flabbergasted that we spent so much just for a few hours in a day. The dress that cost so much will be worn only for those few hours and then take up residence at the back of a storage closet somewhere in your home to be taken out again only many years down the road. The natural flowers that cost a fortune for the decorations will wilt away a few days later. People will talk about the extravagances for a few days and even the talk will die down after some time.That’s why most people are increasingly trying to incorporate the do it yourself concept into wedding planning.
DIY wedding invitations are a big hit because people have come to realize that invitations are not that big a deal because most people look at an invite, not down the date and then throw it into the dustbin. It’s not like they have it as keepsake any more like they used to. Another thing that you can cut back on the cost is with the table decors, serviette rings and placement cards. All these little little things although individually don’t seem like they will cost much, when put together will amount to a quite a substantial part of a wedding cost. And if you are a person looking to give your wedding a personal touch and making sure that the guests enjoy themselves rather wanting the high end stuff then you can even make adjustments with food, example opting for a barbecue instead of the same old wedding buffet which will make the whole occasion less formal and give you a chance to interact with guests as well. And many people out there have proved that cutting down on costs does not necessarily have to make a wedding less attractive or less enjoyable.
