Taking Inspiration from Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z's Wedding Ceremony

Taking Inspiration from Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z's Wedding Ceremony

A wedding that is both elegant and high end can sometimes be hard to get your inspirations from; everything happens to be way too exaggerated. What we usually do is break down on some of these issues and how you can hold such a wedding on a budget. Here are some of the things that could inspire you from Beyoncé and Jay-Z's wedding.

  • Make the guest list short. Beyoncé and Jay-z had a total of 40 guests, and that included their close family and friends. You do not need to invite the entire neighborhood to your wedding. That will be expensive for you. All you need to do is gather the people who you care about to your big day. These are those people who will always be by your side at all times. By doing so, you might end up spending way less.
  • Music and entertainment. Even though the couple is among our top musicians, they kept it simple by jamming to some love songs from Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson. This is probably one of the greatest inspirations as it shows you that you don't have to hire a music band or a professional DJ or musician to play at your wedding. Since it can be very expensive. Another source of music could be from a music student or your friends and family.
  • Wedding attire. The wedding gown that Beyoncé wore was a design by her mother. It can be very tempting to be carried away by all the fashionable dresses. One thing that should go without really saying is that you should stick to your budget and get one that is within range. You can also get your dress custom made by friends or family members who are professional in that area.
  • The hair and the makeup. One thing about Beyoncé is that she always keeps things cool. During her wedding, she was spotted wearing very minimalistic makeup, and her hairstyle was also so simple in a ponytail. Do not break your budget trying to get a professional makeup artist to do your makeup, instead; you can buy your makeup and do it yourself.
  • East or west, home is the best. The couple held their wedding ceremony in one of their houses in NYC. Consider the idea of holding your wedding in your background or even the local social grounds or hall. Do not rent out an expensive space that you will only be using for just a single day.
  • Keep the décor minimal but elegant. You can get beautiful flowers from your local florist at a better cost than ordering them to be shipped. And always remember that sometimes less is more.
