You’re dreaming of a fairy tale wedding but chances are, you’re being held back by budget constraints. Being in this scene long enough, our editors have come up with a list of ways you can reduce the cost of your wedding without sacrificing on style.
1. Don’t Get Married On A Saturday
This is the most popular day for people to get married. Even though many people are having their wedding dinners on a Saturday night, Friday and Sunday nights are becoming more common and acceptable.

2. Buy Your Wedding Shoes in A Style Or Color You Can Reuse
Most of the time, brides are concerned about the usage of their wedding shoes after their wedding. While you want to look gorgeous in a pair of designer shoe, we totally understand the hesitation. At Christy Ng Shoes, we always recommend our customers to choose a versatile color as your choice of wedding shoe. Shades like silver, dark champagne and gold can always double up as dinner shoes in the future. Besides that, you can always opt for a simple style such as bows or brooches if you want to reuse the shoe for future events.
3. Plan Your Destination Wedding Shoots Ahead
According to Paul Kong, a professional wedding photographer from LaFame Bridal Mansion at SS2 PJ, it is always cheaper to plan ahead and have your photo shoots during the off periods as his schedule is less packed and it allows him more leeway to plan and accommodate your requests. You can also check their schedule for their destination pre-wedding tour and plan accordingly.
