During the weeks and months you spend planning your wedding there will be many decisions that you will have to make such as the venue, the number of guests that you are going to invite and of course, most importantly what your perfect dress is going to look like. However, the one thing that is common in almost all traditional weddings is that you will surely end up spending a lot of your saving on feeding many people, some that you love and want at your big day and other that you have to invite out of obligation. These people that you have to invite out of obligation can be a thorn in your side because you already have so much money to spend and spending money on photographers that you barely know is not fun at all.
Dare to be different
The first thing you will need to do is to set a budget for your wedding based on your savings. It is important to make sure that the budget you set for your wedding is just a fraction of your saving because you will need to survive after you big day is over. The next thing you will need to do is start going to hotels, banquet halls and other venues to get quotations for everything that you need for your wedding and add them in to your budget without confirming anything at first. You are likely to find that your day at a location close to you with your one hundred guests will cost you an amount of money that can easily buy you and your spouse to be an air ticket to an exotic location where you can have a destination wedding with five or ten of your closest family members and best friends. In fact, you will be surprised to find that some of your closest friends will be willing to pay their own way just to be at the wedding with you.
There are many amazing locations at which you could have a perfect little destination wedding, on the beach, in the hills or in an old mansion with historic value.
Some of the most famous countries in the world for weddings are Sri Lanka where it is summer all year long and you can have the perfect wedding on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and Maldives, where you can live on a tiny island surrounded by the great Indian Ocean. If you prefer something more exotic, you could choose to get married in Bali in one of its many beautiful temples.
