Weddings don’t have to be all glitz and glamour with lots of expense. You can have an amazing wedding day and still keep it simple. A simple wedding day is bound to be much less stressful! These tips will help you:
Plan in Advance
When you plan your wedding day in advance, you’ll have much less to worry about on the day. Even if you don’t plan on getting married for a few years, planning as much as you can in advance will take a weight off your shoulders and make you feel better.
Make a List of Things That Matter the Most to You
All that really matters on your wedding day, is that you do the things that matter the most to you. If something doesn’t matter that much, then you can ignore it altogether or spend very little time on it. For instance, you might consider the food the most important thing. After all, that’s one thing the guests will really remember and all have something to do with. In this case, you should look at appropriate banquet halls and similar options. If nothing matters but you and your partner, you could simply jet off and get married on a beach somewhere. You don’t even need to go abroad to do it! It’s all about what you both deem to be important.
Enlist Help of Friends and Family
Enlisting the help of friends and family will make things cheaper and much less hassle for you. They’ll likely to be happy to help on one of the most important days of your life, and you might even consider telling them they don’t have to get you a present to make the offer even more attractive. If you get them involved when it comes to readings and things like that, it’ll make your day all the more special to you.

Just Think of it as a Party
Instead of thinking of it as a wedding, which can make you think of all of the money you’ll spend, think of it as a party. A party with your nearest and dearest isn’t going to cost anywhere near as much as your traditional ‘wedding’. It’ll still mean a lot to you though!
Don’t Get Into Debt
Why get into debt over one day? Sure it’s going to be one of the best days, but you don’t need to get into debt for it. If you can’t afford it, then don’t do it. There are so many ways you can have the best day of your life without spending a fortune. Don’t feel the need to spend more than you have to impress people.
Remember What’s Important
Don’t forget what’s important on your wedding day. You and your other half declaring your love for one another! If you keep this in mind the whole day, nothing else will matter. It’ll just be a bonus!
Stay in the present moment on your big day and enjoy every second. It doesn’t need to be expensive or flashy!
