Your wedding can still be one of the most beautiful moments in life without you having to spend a lot of money. Here’s how you can save money on your wedding.
3 Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding
1. Realize that marriage is not the ultimate goal
The first thing you need to do is realize that marriage is not the ultimate goal. In fact, marriage is your initial goal in entering a new chapter of life. After marriage, a new life begins as you are starting a new life with your spouse.
Once you realize this, it will be easier for you to be wise regarding the use of money for holding a wedding reception. By not spending too much money on your wedding, you can save money for life after marriage.
2. Invite only those closest to you
Your wedding can indeed be more fun when many guests attend. But, if you think about it wisely, isn’t the atmosphere of your wedding more beautiful and intimate when attended only by the closest people you really know and love? In addition to those who have a close relationship with you, you can also invite people you respect such as your superiors in the workplace.
By limiting the number of guests, you can save money on your wedding as you don't have to order food for so many people. To save more money, you can also share invitations online. With online invitations, you don't have to spend money to print them. Online invitations have become commonplace nowadays.
3. Take advantage of available resources
The last way to save money on your wedding is to take advantage of available resources. What does it mean? For example, if you have a friend who is good at making souvenirs, you can ask them for help. Do you have a friend who has a beautiful voice to sing at your wedding? You can ask them if they are willing to do so.
It's the same for venues. Because the number of guests invited is limited, you don't need a very large place to hold a wedding party. If you have a friend whose yard is big enough, you can ask their permission to have a party there. Or if there’s none, you can simply rent a room and for the decoration you can ask friends or family members for help.
Save Money for Your Wedding in a Shared Pocket
Saving money for your wedding needs to be done in advance so that the wedding goes according to plan. To start saving money with your partner for your wedding, you can do it easily and practically in a Shared Pocket.
The Shared Pocket is one of the innovative features in the Jago application. The feature allows you to collaborate financially with anyone, including your partner of course.
The awesome thing is, you and your partner can set a target in the Shared Pocket. So, you can decide when to already have the money you need for your wedding and monitor the progress of saving at any time.
To create a Shared Pocket you need to first create a Saving Pocket. After the Saving Pocket is created, you can invite your partner to contribute. When the invitation is sent, the Saving Pocket will automatically turn into a Shared Pocket.
If you want to keep on collaborating financially with your spouse after the wedding, you can continue to use the same Pocket. It's just a matter of changing the name of the Pocket because later the goal will be different, which is to manage finances with your spouse.
