Here are 5 easy ways to save money on your wedding:
1.) Many of us buy used all of the time. One of the best items to buy used is a wedding dress. Most times- used wedding dresses are generally worn only once or twice, and sometimes you can save hundreds or thousands on your dream dress!
2.) Go for faux! Faux flowers, whether paper or silk, can save you a lot of money- AND they last forever. If you really want real flowers on your big day- maybe opt for just the bridal party bouquets being made from real flowers or even check for “day old” sales on flowers!
3.) Decor and centerpieces don’t have to cost an arm and a leg to build. If your wedding is going to be in line with any current trends- try buying pieces that have already been made for someone else’s wedding and tie them together for your own beautiful centerpiece! The savings in this one in particular add up VERY quickly!
4.) When creating your invitations- simple is better when you’re on a budget, but that doesn’t mean you have to have a drab invitation! Think 2D instead of a 3D one with tons of embellishments and ribbons and different styles of paper and lace. Not only will you save on the cost of the invitation itself, but you will save big time on postage. There are tons of pre-made designs you can choose from OR a good graphic artist should be able to design a beautiful invitation for $50-$100!
5.) Look for an “all-in-one” venue. And try to find one with a coordinator that is there to help you! This means food, tables/chairs/linens, etc. This will save HUGE amounts of money because you won’t need to hire an outside planner/coordinator, caterer or table/table linen supply company!
By implementing some or all of these simple tips, you will save tons of money! (More money for a honeymoon anyone?)
