In today’s Wedding Wednesday blog post from, we share Tips for Making Your Wedding Personal and Budget-Friendly.  Read on:

You must put a lot of effort into making your wedding a magical day. It’s a time to celebrate your love and partnership in the presence of all your friends and family members. You can make it more special by choosing a unique or personal venue rather than holding the event in a traditional location. For ideas on planning a special wedding in the perfect location for you, check out the following guide presented by Invitations4Less.

Foreign Locations

The first idea that many think of as an alternative wedding idea is to head to a faraway destination. Holding your wedding on a Caribbean island or in a tropical jungle is a dream come true. While this can be magical, it creates many high expenses for you and for those attending the event. This is a great idea if you and your guests can all afford to travel and stay in another location. Create a unique setting by finding a beautiful location that’s less frequently visited, such as Panama or Belize.

Nature Locations

There are many excellent outdoor locations that allow you to celebrate your love with nature as a backdrop. If you’re getting married in the right season and can predict good weather, an outdoor location can provide the perfect setting for your vows. Perhaps you can hold a ceremony by a local river or head down to the coast for a seaside wedding. The extra planning to cater to guests or the reliance on good weather conditions may discourage you from holding your event outdoors. However, if you can pull it off, the wedding is likely to be a spectacular occasion.

Rustic Weddings

A popular venue that’s trending right now is to have your wedding in a barn.  Old barns have been renovated to provide just the right amount of ambiance and romance that today’s couples desire.  If you’ve found a barn and intend to get married there, check out our White Florals and Barn Wedding Invitation.

Cultural Locations

If you aren’t a fan of holding an outdoor wedding, consider a unique indoor spot to hold your wedding, perhaps one that celebrates a common interest between you and your partner. For instance, museums or places of cultural interest can often be hired out as locations to hold ceremonies.  The brewery or distillery behind a favorite local beverage can also make a great spot as can a favorite nightclub or lounge. Think about the common interests and experiences you and your partner share to inspire a location that truly celebrates your history and relationship.

A Personal Touch

A great way to make the location personal and unique is to hold your wedding in your home. While it’s not a go-to idea for many, it lets you save money for more important things and also allows you a chance to upgrade or revamp your home. Make sure you record any home upgrades on a list to show a home appraiser in the future. If you decide to sell your home, an itemized list of these changes is invaluable.

Home Sweet Home

Holding your wedding at home can be a great way to cut down cost, too. You’ve already eliminated the high priced venue, and now you can decide what you’d like to splurge on and what you can do without. Perhaps you’d like a nicer caterer, but can do without the open bar? Or limit drinks and go with a mid-price dinner option.
