One of the best ways to give your wedding an expensive air is to choose a venue with some character. And that doesn’t mean going out of your city and having a destination wedding. You’ll be surprised at the number of offbeat and beautiful venues you can find in your city.

To make your wedding appear grand, take a pick from venues such as museums, historical ruins, botanical gardens, and the like. These serve as a magical backdrop to your magical day and cost way lesser than a fancy hall.

2. Keep The Décor Simple

Elegance lies in simplicity. So, if you’re not sure about how the décor of your wedding should be, just keep it simple. Clutter can kill elegance and also give your wedding a rather disorganized feel and appearance. Hence, keep the DIY to a minimum and choose a classy color palate to instantly glam up your wedding in a sophisticated way.

You can also pick a single color or motif theme to achieve the same effect. For example, you could incorporate graceful scrollwork into your wedding invitations as well as in your décor. You can do the same with color, too, like having a deep eggplant wedding card and using the same color to adorn the chairs at the venue.

3. Don’t Go Overboard With The Flowers

Flowers are the most expensive, albeit essential, part of any wedding. And if you’re not careful enough with the flower decorations of your wedding, their budget can go from expensive to super expensive in no time. So, what you need to do here is be strategic when it comes to choosing flowers for your big day.

That doesn’t mean you cut down on the flowers and have none of them adorn your tables. It just means choosing the right flowers to suit your budget and achieve the same effect as an expensive wedding. Your flower choices have to be smart for this. Hence, be ready to kiss the expensive orchids and lilies goodbye and instead get more amount of flowers for the same amount of money.

You can also have a central floral piece for your wedding that grabs eyeballs the minute your guests walk into the venue. Try keeping this statement piece near the entry and make sure it sweeps your guests off their feet!

4. Use Your Menu And Catering To Your Advantage

Having a classy wedding is equivalent to offering delectable delights to the guests in attendance. But here’s a little secret you need to know – you really don’t need an extensive menu to pull it off. Hence, instead of having loads and loads of food options on display, focus on displaying the food in a beautiful manner so that your guests can’t help but swoon over how good everything looks.

Another way to ensure that your wedding looks like an expensive affair is to get your waiters dressed up in sharp tuxedos as they pass around fancy hors d’oeuvres. Making the waiting staff wear gloves as they cater to the crowd at your wedding is yet another inexpensive way to class up your wedding!

5. Shorten Your Guest List

Do you really need your uncle’s daughter’s best friend’s favorite aunt at your wedding? No, you don’t. So, don’t waste your time and energy in trying to throw a lavish wedding for 300 people on a ramen noodle budget. Crop the guest list short and invite only those people who you would want to see in attendance. This’ll not only prevent you from cutting corners at your own wedding, but it’s also a surefire way to save some extra bucks and invest the money in maybe getting a fancy cake for your D-day!

Now, all said and done, while being thrifty is definitely a virtue, try not to be too overcautious in your attempts to save money. Your wedding day, that sacred moment when you pledge to love and cherish the other half to your whole, is one day you want not to cut corners.
