Getting the exact wedding you want can be a very expensive affair. Just because you do not have enough money or do not come from a rich family does not mean that you should not have a memorable wedding. You can get the money to finance your wedding from a number of sources including:
Getting a loan
Yes, I know this is a controversial idea but it is worth considering. The one thing you should know before getting a loan or any help from a financial institution is your capability. This will determine if you will be able to pay back or not. Some institutions offer to pay your wedding expenses while others can give you the money up front. Pick the one you are comfortable with.
Look at the amount you earn and this will guide you on how much to borrow. Do not borrow more than you can pay just for the sake of having a lavish wedding. The main purpose of the loan is to help you out with the expenses you can’t afford at the moment and not to spend beyond your means since you do not want to start your marriage deep in debt.
Borrow from family
If getting a loan is not something you wish to do, you may want to borrow from family members. Most people pay for their wedding using this method. This is by far the easiest way to raise money for your wedding as most of your family members will be more than willing to help you out since they will be attending the wedding.
Tap into your savings
If you have any savings, you can tap into that. It is not a good idea to spend all your savings on one day though. The savings you end up using should be to help you out with critical aspects of the wedding, and not to finance the whole wedding. You do not want to spend all your money and then start your marriage life with no money and no savings.
Pay as You go
If getting the whole amount proves difficult, you can pay for the different things as you go. Most wedding vendors can accept to work with you even if you do not have the full amount. They may require you to pay half the amount at the beginning and the rest later. You will be free to pay the remaining amount as you get it, probably from your salary or earnings.
