Do you have any idea that you can have the wedding of your dreams without spending hundreds and thousands of dollars?

Tying the knot shouldn’t be that additional when it comes to spending. In fact, you might in fact get married in Singapore for as low as S$42 in the Registry of Marriages (ROM)!

In any case, here's the catch: you're probably still overwhelmed with the upcoming costs of your wedding. Fortunately, we're here to assist you with reducing that frustration by posting down 6 simple steps to plan your wedding on a budget in Singapore.

Step 1. First, Decide Your Wedding Style

When it comes to picking the style of your wedding, there are a lot of elements you want to consider. Your wedding venue should be a first concern, first of all.

Do you imagine having a cozy wedding in a restaurant? An outdated space? A boutique hotel? Or maybe an outdoor ceremony by the beach? There are lots of decisions for the venue, every one of which vary in costs.

For example, a hotel ceremony and reception would be more costly than a garden and tented setting. So you should consider planning this one complete with your partner in order to achieve the overall vibe that you both need.

Step 2. Discuss the Wedding Budget

Be openly honest and arrange the needs of your budget. This isn't even about how much money you can spend altogether; it's about spending the perfect amount to a specific area.

Under your wedding budget, there should be exact planning to ensure that you won't fall into any obligations. While it can be tempting to get a wedding loan, it can get hard to take care of it if you have other financial commitments.

So, make sure to remember to only spend within your ability.

Step 3. Breakdown of Expenses

Presently, this is where you want to open the excel spreadsheets. Breaking down the costs one  by one can get unpleasant and horrifying at the same time, but this is an effective approach to clearly see where your money will go.

You'll be paying for the wedding rings, wedding outfit and suit, but assuming you lean toward a much less expensive decision, there are also wedding outfit rentals that you can avail of.

Also, there's the cosmetics artist, hairdresser, catering, photographer, videographer, wedding blossom, bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen suits to consider. Unless you believe that everything should fall in your budget, you should compromise on other aspects.

You can get stylish by picking mix-and-match bridesmaids dresses, as well as picking, semi-formal outfits for the groomsmen all things being equal. You also need to register the transportation cost on your wedding day, whether you bring your own vehicle or utilize vehicle rentals.

Step 4. Try to Limit Your Guest List

This is where you and your future mate need to basically choose. In order to save more money, you should try to limit the quantity of guests that you'll invite.

It may seem hard at first, but you want to sit this one out with your partner. You may be tempted to write down a lot of names, but you want to remember that every person is still an expense.

You can give cutting a shot 20% from your guest  list if you need to accomplish that small and close affair. All things being equal, you should only invite those who truly make a difference to you, because less is more!

That also means the wedding, prices during these months are higher and at their peak. So if you want to pay less, you should choose the off-season months.

Step 5. Decide the Time of Your Wedding

You really want to decide a proper time for your wedding. June to September are known as the wedding months, so expect to see a great deal of couples getting married.

In other words, this means that a large portion of the dates will be completely reserved.

That also means the wedding costs during these months are higher and at their peak. So if you have any desire to save money, you should pick the off-season months.

Also, you should consider the day of the week as well. During Friday and Sunday, some of the best wedding venues are half the usual price, and you'll even have more seller choices during the days.

Step 6. Think about DIY Decorations
