If your groom has opted for a simple suit, then add a splash of glamour to it with a new tie or cravat and a simple white shirt to transform an everyday suit into glamorous grooms wear. You can also gift him a personalised wedding tie and choose a colour that goes with your wedding theme.

8: Hair and Make-up

If you are planning a budget wedding, hair and make-up is one of those areas where you have to compromise. So watch YouTube videos and recreate your chosen wedding hairstyle. However, remember: less is more and a simple hairstyle will cause you less stress on your big day.
For make-up, invest in good foundation, lipstick and mascara for your wedding day. This way, your wedding make-up will feel extra special. Sephora, Space NK, Feel Unique and Boots are few of the many great places to find some extra special makeup.
If you have a friend or relative who is great with hairstyles and makeup, then do not be afraid to ask for help or advice when it comes to creating your big day look.
