Wedding Budget Tip #8:
Choose a naturally beautiful location for your wedding ceremony and reception.
Choosing a naturally beautiful setting for your wedding location can save you lots of money!
How? Well, the more lovely the location, the less you’ll have to do to decorate it!
Want some examples? Most of the prettiest locations to hold a wedding are outdoors, where Mother Nature does the decorating. There are tons of options for low-cost or no-cost wedding venues, including parks and gardens, a family member’s backyard, or other non-traditional locations.
Embrace the beauty of nature with an outdoor wedding
Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Location Ideas
Consider getting married in a public park in springtime. Green grass, flowering bushes — no need for fancy flower arrangements!
Or perhaps you’ll choose to get married at the beach! Have a simple ceremony on the beach with the crashing waves as your altar and some palm trees in the background.
You could even choose to wed on the porch of a private cabin in the woods, overlooking rolling wooded mountains.
K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple & Savvy!
In each of these examples, the natural beauty of the location takes over and makes it unnecessary to add extra decorations.
If you do feel the need to do some decorating, remember – simplicity is key. String some lights, gather some potted plants, or create a simple “altar” and let the landscape do the rest of the work for you!
In some cases, less is truly more. Chic and simple is always better than gaudy or over-the-top. Editing your decor down to the essentials will make your event feel more understated and tasteful.
