First comes love, then comes marriage and then paying for the wedding. I’m sure you’ve already guessed it by now why no one writes fairy tales about the latter!
While Pakistan has been witnessing economic challenges in recent days, and how Imran Khan has made everything costlier. The room/house rent, the food, the electricity, the Shaadi halls and almost every other thing has become expensive. Most people are now scared that they might end up paying taxes on getting married. Well, thankfully that’s not happened yet, but you never know. With everything being so expensive most maybe wondering how to pull off the wedding of your dreams without breaking the bank.
I know I have don’t have to say this being a pure Pakistani but don’t hesitate to negotiate on everything. AND I MEAN EVERYTHING.
Don’t Get Married In The Wedding Season
Try not to get married at off-peak wedding times, especially November, early December. You can also avoid weekends. Just think “off season” for your wedding date. Plus food and beverage minimums are lower. You’ll save money!
Since Saturday is the most popular day of the week for weddings, it’s also the most expensive. And no one said “Saturday in June” wedding couples have a lot more fun than the others!
Keep it simple. Don’t compromise quality over quantity. It is better to serve limited dishes rather than confuse your guests to choose what to eat.
Try to book venues with in-house catering options as this will significantly bring down your cost of renting the venue. Most venues offer great deals for mid-week weddings, as well as off-season dates and not to brag but we can totally help you with it.
Ditch Multiple Venues for Events
Host your wedding and reception at the same venue, hosting both your events at the same venue will cost less but why have multiple events? Just one is fine, Think about it.

Save on Photography
Opt for a digital album rather than choosing a physical one. Avoiding prints can help you save a lot of money. Book the photographer for only eight to ten hours instead of a full day. Just go for one photographer rather than two and don’t be shy, let them know what your budget is from the get go.
