While planning a wedding, one of the most common budgeting mistakes couples make is paying too much attention to the minor details and gimmicks over the major necessities. The result? Couples tend to exceed the amount they initially intended to spend! However, that wasn’t the case for Diego and April. This couple was completely committed to sticking to the amount they set from the very start. They were able to stay within their budget by pinpointing which suppliers to prioritize and these were the photographer, videographer, caterer and venue, while saving on the rest of their needs like the invitations (which the bride designed herself), music, and favors. Their savvy planning and spending habits definitely paid off as they were able to create the simple yet elegant wedding they have always wanted.
They achieved that clean and crisp style for their reception venue with a dominantly white motif and hints of gold on accent pieces like the candle holders, and even the wedding cake. As for the wedding fashion, April wore a strapless Ivory & White Bridal gown that looked so sweet and romantic, while her bridesmaids gave a stunning contrast in their red infinity dresses.
Sticking to your budget and a bit of creativity can definitely help you plan the wedding of your dreams. Check out all the details of this savvy couple’s big day through these photos by Myio Okamoto.
