Planning a wedding is an exciting time, but it's very easy to go overboard, and in no time, your expenses could start spiraling out of control. You can have a great wedding AND keep your budget under control. Take heed of the advice that is contained here to bring the wedding budget back under control, while you have a day to remember.

If you are short on money but long on time, then try printing all your wedding invitations yourself. When it comes to printing your own invitations, there are many options available including invitation kits. These kits often include the card stock and envelops. Invitation kits often allow you to select such things as ink, wording and fonts.

A wedding dress is a big expense. When shopping for your dress, consider dresses that may not be categorized as a wedding dress. You could get a bridesmaid's dress, and it would be just a fraction of the cost. You can also make additions and changes to these dresses to make them more wedding appropriate and still come out ahead financially.

Once your wedding design is in your mind, put it down on paper and start researching any services that can help with your ideal design. Once you have a shortlist of suppliers who can give you what you need, then you can begin sorting them by price and service offered.

Hand over parts of your planning and preparations to others. Because weddings have such a large emotional investment, you will most likely want to have a large role in every part of the planning process. However, you can overdo it, so trust others who are willing to help.

If the bride and groom share a fondness for travel, look for decorative elements that convey a shared sense of wanderlust. You can make invitations and save-the-date cards to resemble vintage postcard or boarding pass. Prop open a leather vintage suitcase and display family photos, wedding programs and party favors.

Try to find a way to relax if you can find some time in your schedule in the morning before your wedding. One option you might consider is to schedule a 30-minute massage, so you are relaxed and feel the best you can on your big day.

Keep up-to-date on the weather conditions as you approach your wedding day. For example, don't hold an outdoor wedding during a heat wave--people might not stay too long, if they are uncomfortable. Similarly, they may leave early, if they are too cold at your winter party. Provide comfort to your guests with small accommodations and features, like having fans available if you are having a summer wedding.

If you are having a destination wedding, a good gift to get your guests is a basket filled with vacation goodies sent to their room. Have items in them like disposable cameras, hats, sunglasses and tourist maps of the exciting places that they can visit. Another nice gesture is to include a restaurant guide, since people do need to eat after all.

There is no reason why you cannot have a glorious wedding without cleaning out your bank account. Use the advice in this article to plan the wedding you want, at a price that makes you happy.
