Two of the most major milestones in life are getting married and buying your own house. However, put them together in the same time span and you’ve got a rather hefty bill on your hands. Couples who are getting married soon (congratulations!) and looking to renovate their love nest, we come to your rescue!

That amount may be intimidating, but you can stave off costs with these simple tricks.

Digital invites are in
Traditional cards are passé, unless you handmade them. But if time isn’t on your side, go digital! Customise and send a digital invitation if you prefer something fancy, but if money is really tight, we suppose that a simple Facebook invitation will do.

Make do without a wedding planner
Your wedding is one of the biggest events in your life so why not participate in creating that milestone? To prevent yourself from turning into a bridezilla, rope in your BFF to keep the planning and your sanity in check.

Hold your solemnisation and wedding banquet at the same time
Kill two birds with one stone to shave a fraction of the costs required for event logistics. What’s truly awesome is being able to feed hungry guests right after they witness the solemnisation ceremony.

Trim down the photographers, hours and photoshoot locations
Or if you are thick-skinned enough, appoint a friend who has awesome filter and Instagram skills to be the photographer and document your big day with a #wedding hashtag.
