Sure inflation is high and money may be tight, but you still would like to get married and have an amazing wedding. But how? Well, planning a wedding can be one of the most exciting yet stressful times of a person's life. One of the biggest concerns is often the cost; weddings can be very expensive, and it's not uncommon for couples to go over budget. But what if I told you that you could have your dream wedding without spending a dime? Yes, you read that right! As an event planner, I've picked up a few tips and tricks on how to get your wedding paid for free. Here's 5 easy and fun tips describing how to have an affordable and/or FREE wedding. 

Free wedding ideas
Have a destination wedding
Consider having your wedding at a beautiful destination with your closest friends and family members. Many resorts offer all-inclusive wedding packages that include everything from catering to decor. As the resort will be making a good amount of money from the rest of your guests' stay, they will likely be willing to throw in some extra perks like free decor or even a free wedding package.

Enter contests
Many companies, from wedding vendors to bridal magazines, hold wedding contests that offer all kinds of prizes for couples. Keep an eye out for such contests and be sure to enter them. Who knows, you may win a free dress, cake, or even a honeymoon.

How to have a free wedding
Utilize your talents
Are you or anyone in your wedding party talented in any way? Can you sing, dance, play music, or have a knack for creating beautiful floral arrangements? Consider utilizing these talents to earn money towards your wedding. Perform at local venues or sell your crafts online to raise some cash.

Use credit card rewards
Put all your wedding-related expenses on a rewards credit card. You could potentially earn some serious cash-back or reward points that can be redeemed for gift cards or even flights for your honeymoon.

Get sponsored
Reach out to local businesses in your area and pitch a sponsorship. Explain that your wedding will include many out-of-town guests that will need accommodations, transportation, and places to eat and shop. In exchange for sponsoring your wedding, you can offer advertising opportunities such as placing their logo on your wedding website, flyers, and other promotional material.

Getting your wedding paid for free may seem impossible, but with a little creativity, it's very much doable. Consider all your options, use your resources, and don't be afraid to ask for help. Remember, your wedding day should be about celebrating your love, not about how much money you spent on it. I hope these tips help you on your wedding planning journey!
