In order to throw an elegant wedding reception or party, it can end up costing a lot of money. What most people don't know is that there are a large number of government grants available for this purpose. Just kidding! Although you may not be able to get a grant to cover the expenses, there are a lot of potential sources of funding for wedding receptions and parties. This article explores various overlooked options that are available for funding wedding receptions and will try to exaimine some creative funding ideas.

One of the most common sources of funding for wedding receptions and events can come from parents and immediate family. Traditionally, it was the father of the bride that would pay the bills for the wedding reception with the father of the groom coming up with the cash for the rehearsal dinner. For many people, this is the first option to come up with money for the wedding. PArents often want to send the couple off one the right foot and want to support them in any way possible. Often paying or helping to pay for the wedding reception is a way to do that. The only drawback here is that often with funding from parents, the parents will want to have a large stake in what is happening in the wedding.

Many couples decide to pay for the wedding themselves if they are both working and want to have more control over the planning process. This option works well if the couple has the money themselves or can work hard to obtain the money. Some couples elect to work overtime or a second job in order to come up with the extra money. This can be extremely difficult especially if the wedding planning process is time consuming. However it can be rewarding for the couple knowing that they earned the money to pay for the excellent reception and time with guests.

Another source of funding for a wedding can be relatives and grandparents. Often, older grandparents are in a position financially to contribute more to a couple's wedding and may be very inclined to do so once they are informed of a need. Many older grandparents may even establish a fund or set aside money to help their grandchildren. Relatives as well can be a good source if they are looking to help. The main challenge is not to offend someone by asking them for money. Generally if a grandparent or relative wants to provide assistance, they will provide it once they learn of your engagement.

The final way to come up with money is to cut expenses. This has the effect of stretching existing dollars and decreases the total amount of money required. Many of the other articles in this guide provide advice on how to make the most out of your wedding resources.
