Whether it's an arranged or a love marriage, marriage is a bond unlike any other. Not just for the groom and the bride, but for their friends, family and close ones, it is a time that they don't want to forget. Amidst all the excitement and celebrations, it is highly likely for both the families to get carried away due to the special occasion. Chances are, careful wedding planning may just go down the drain.
Wedding planning is a lot of fun, but the budget has to be kept in mind. While some people are relaxed on their budget, others have a tight budget and regardless of that, they opt for debt. But is taking debts to host a grand wedding really worth all the glitz and glamour? Are there any other ways to fulfil the wish of a glam wedding while not running low on money?
Arranging money for a wedding is a real problem and people have various ways to go about it. Some people even choose to collect money from their relatives, if they are running extremely short of the amount. The cost of the wedding also depends on the location of the wedding. This will also affect the cost of the guests' part and how much they are willing to go to a wedding ceremony in a far-flung area. Even if the guests are more than willing to join in the fun, they need to be cautious about their budget.
Even more than far-flung areas, weddings can take place in an entirely different city or even a country, for that matter! Destination weddings as we call them can bring unlimited memories to the bride, the groom, both the families and close ones. But what if the travelling costs are not being covered by the host and you have to attend on your own?
