If you want to have multiple functions then avoid choosing multiple venues because if you choose a single one then you can get a discount on the overall package. Also there would be only one venue to decorate. By searching online, you can get a perfect wedding venue in your city. For example, search on WedMeGood for venues in Delhi if you are getting married in Delhi. You can find banquet halls in Chattarpur, South Delhi, North Delhi and other localities on the site.

Choose Season Wisely

If you get married in off season then you are likely to get a good venue at a lower price. Also the weekends are usually more expensive so if you are not keen on weekends then choose a weekday instead.

There are a lot of boutiques that offer bridal clothes on rent so if you are on a tight budget then you rent a dress instead of buying it because a bridal dress is quite heavy and formal so it can be expensive. In the same manner, you can use family heirlooms instead of buying jewelry or you can artificial jewelry as this would save you a lot of money.


Pictures and videos are a form of memories of your big day. They are a huge part of your wedding and you cannot exclude it. Therefore, what you can do is hire someone from your friend circle as you’ll get a more reasonable rate in this way and you won’t be missing out on those beautiful pictures.

You can make your dream wedding come true by just being a little careful on how you spend your money. Other than that follow the tips and achieve your ideal wedding.
