How to Enjoy Your Wedding Best Without Breaking the Bank

In most situations, wedding is always a huge overhead for most ordinary people. So if you have a limited budget for your big day, you should try to save money as much as possible. We already told you some commonly used tips for saving money before, here are some not so commonly used ones, but they do help a lot for the wedding budget saving.

1. Cash in your points.
If you learn that a destination wedding is in your future, start saving up points on credit cards and airlines. Some airlines offer free roundtrip tickets when you open an account and make a purchase. However tempting, be careful if you go this route, as these cards can have hefty interest rates. Charge only for things you need, and make sure you can afford them.

2. Look for travel deals.
Sign up for email alerts from airlines and rental car companies so you'll be in the know when they offer special deals during the month you need to travel. Check any organizations to which you belong -- auto clubs, warehouse shopping clubs, college alumni groups -- for discounted prices at hotels, restaurants, car rental agencies and more.

3. Don't buy garments just for the occasion.
Yes, it's important to look your best, but don't drop a fortune on a wedding dress or suit that you'll never wear again. You can dress up the most basic of ensembles with jewelry, colorful wraps or a new tie.

4. Buddy up.
If you don't have a plus-one date tagging along, ask the future Mr. and Mrs. for the names of other single attendees who might be willing to split the cost of a car or hotel room.

Weddings should be big and happy occasions for new couples, but it's hard to partake in the festivities if you keep seeing dollar signs for all of your expenses. So if you got all these ways used in your wedding party preparing, I'm sure you will have a wedding that you two and your guests will never forget.
