I just wonder how to have an elegant church wedding this time of worldwide financial crisis. My boyfriend and I is planning for our wedding in two years time. We already canvass price of gowns and suits, restaurants for reception, wedding ring, and even the church. It seems that it's too expensive even we already planned to invite limited guests. Sometimes civil wedding comes to our mind just to lessen our expenses but of course I still prefer to have a church wedding. I hope you could share tips on my problem. ;-)

I have gone to two of my older brothers wedding and what I can tell you is ask friends to help. Most of the time our friends have alot of other friends who may give you discounts with the food, flowers, venue and more. You can maybe ask a close friend of yours who does invitations to do it for you as a gift for your wedding or maybe have your bestfriend help you with other arrangements. It actually helps to have a lot of people involve so that you get more work done and maybe have your wedding a lot cheaper. I myself would really want to have church wedding but with the crisis today it is difficult to plan anything when prices go up and down all the time.

My fiance and I are also planning to get marry next year. We too are in a tight budget and I know how you feel.. The best and yet advice I could give you is to attend wedding fairs. There the suppliers can give you discounts if you book the date you wish. Invest also on internets and books about Do It Yourself. From here it will be more personalize and more meaningful to both of you. One thing to consider also is the destination wedding. You can have it in the beach or at mountains, here you have an excuse to invite only the people who are close to you... Planning early is also one way to cut cost. Good thing you ask... Hope these advice can help...
