If you stay together, write the question with a lipstick on the bathroom mirror and draw two check boxes for “yes” and “no”.

If you have a pet, tie a ribbon around its neck with the question and the ring.

Take a pottery class together and opt to create plates. When making your plate, write down the question on the plate with your fingers. Your partner will have a souvenir of your proposal that will last forever.

Firts, set your budget, create a wish list for anything you would like and then research and make your enquiries with any suppliers in the local area to gauge for prices on your wishlist. It could be a good idea to create a spreadsheet or even further, an easy to read chart that can quickly make comparisons on the cost and the value on what your providers include in their ‘packages’. This is definitely an efficient way to assess the several values and make sure you know what you’re getting. This way you can keep tracks on the full price and be certain that you will remain in your budget. You’ll be able to easily assess what you can and can’t get and also what easily see what you can get cheaper.

For example if your wedding cake costs the price you were expecting, say three hundred and fifty pounds, are you going to blindly take it at the first opportunity, or dig deeper and get more value for money? Can or will somebody within the family or a friend build or contribute something for you as their gift? Perhaps you may even be able to then pay part your budget on a fabulous cake ‘topper’ to add to the wow-factor. Do be realistic, you can’t expect to have everything you could possibly wish however would you rather indulge on what you realistically cannot afford and then have suffer for it potentially years after to see that money come back. If you really can’t to go without the cake then just think you may be able to sacrifice one thing to subsidise to cost to cover it? For example do you pay out daily on for your work lunch? Packing your own lunch and your own home made sandwiches instead of purchasing from a supermarket could dramatically see you save money; it’s the same concept, get grandma to get you a cake rather than going to Shauls.

Simply put, you can’t have your cake and eat it too! Just imagine if you bought lots of food from Iceland and it most of it was going to go to waste as your guests didn’t like it and you forked out a load of money for it. It’s easy to see famous rich celebrities we would all love to be and live like spend their cash and see what they have in the magazines or TV shows, but it is not always the case for us all. Sparkling wine is always a good alternative to champagne; you could even replace the bottles!

It may always be worth asking your partner to consider a loan for your wedding if you both really love each other and would like to make the event one to remember for years and years to come, there are many companies who can offer short payday loans and so forth. But it’s the risk you take for that one special day which can sometimes go wrong.
