You don’t have to tell me twice that planning a wedding can feel bittersweet. Thinking twice about expenses is rather stressful depending on the budget you’re working with. And honestly, saving a couple bucks on certain things is welcome. Especially for that amazing honeymoon you got coming up.
Here are a couple of ideas on what you can save dollars on:
Environment-friendly and dollar-friendly. Hire a freelance designer and send digital invitations through a website named Joy, that also lets you manage your guest list and RSVPs.
CHECK OUT DEPARTMENT STORES FOR DRESSES:
Saying yes to the dress doesn’t always mean “designer dress”, especially if on a budget. Getting to the perfect pick will still bear memories wherever you may find it.
Jewels, veil, and shoes can really count on your “something old” and “something borrowed”. So, if on a budget, get your hands on those and really make it special.
TRY NONTRADITIONAL VENUES:
Venues will probably be the most expensive part of wedding planning. But, what if you try looking for nontraditional venues? Try a brewery, vacation house, restaurants, or others in town. Give your nuptials a unique feel!
CHECK OUT CRAFT STORES:
Scout out unique decorations at the craft store. You can find so many unique objects and can really save you a buck or two.
Pick a dessert that really represents you and your partner, (what do you get when watching Netflix?). This creates a unique dessert moment! Why serve cake if you’re not into it? Try cupcakes, cookies, pie or ice cream, the possibilities are endless.
Limit this to couples you’re closer with. If you feel the awkward questions incoming, explain how you’re working with the guest list. It’s your big day and you get to choose who to share it with.
Hopefully, these tips help you get some ideas on how to save some money for your big day! XO,
