The first thing about Weddings that nobody wants to tell you is that “Weddings are expensive” and you don’t have to break the bank because you are trying to get married.
Here are some tips and tricks to help you save money on your wedding planning.
- Wedding Dresses: A sample sale is when a boutique sells the gowns that brides try on in the store, with often very large discounts. It doesn’t mean they are all very small, ‘sample sizes’, in fact, there is often a wide range of sizes available. Google sample dresses and then check out stores around you that have those dresses.
- Wedding Cakes: Get a dummy cake made out of cardboard and artificial designs while you just make little cubic cakes that can be served as truffles to your guests.
- Get married on a weekday: Many people will be busy at work or about other important businesses they can’t put away. So your guest list will be trimmed by 20%. You could get a venue as well for 20 to 50% less by booking your wedding for a weekday.
- Use cocktails instead of popping bottles: Bottles of wine could cost so much and your guest size could be a determining factor to how much bottles you would have to get. So to save some money, Get a cocktail bar.
- Avoid Fresh Flowers: Fresh flowers could cost a fortune. Though beautiful, you can save a ton of money by using fake flowers and put them alongside chandeliers and your venue will light up. Way cheaper.
- Wedding Shoes: Don’t spend so much money on wedding shoes because nobody will see them anyway. Buy something cheap that you can wear to work or to church after the wedding.
- E-invites: Use e-invites for the bulk of your guests. this is an electronic age. Don’t waste your money on so much physical stationaries. Just make a little for some really important people or older guests your parents are inviting.
- Look out for sales, discounts, and deals: From wedding dresses to venues and makeup and hair or even wedding planning.
- For Honeymoon packages: Look out for Honeymoon packages that cover travel, accommodation, and feeding as well. You will be inside almost all through your honeymoon getting down to business. So you need to eat and buying food in a currency different from yours can get crazy expensive.
