As you begin preparing, follow through and apply as many of the below tips as needed to see what kind of funds you can save up behind the scenes.
Choosing your favorite gown online can be faster and cheaper, but do so well in advance to allot extra time for alterations. In fact I spent $300 in total, $100 for the gown itself, and only another $200 for the tailoring. Keep in mind any additional costs, and include it in your budget.
Once you know who all is going to give a speech at your wedding, hold a rehearsal for everyone so you can censor out inappropriate material. At a wedding, there is normally a collection of different generations present, and you need to remember that a joke that young people find funny may actually offend older guests.
One way to add glamour to your look on wedding day is to research the possibility of renting diamonds to add to your ensemble. You will look stunning but won’t have to spend a lot, so your budget stays intact.
You don’t have to overwhelm yourself with an expensive and high calorie cake; contact your local specialty bakeries and boutiques and inquire about getting smaller, individual portions made instead. Bakeries can offer options, such as sugar free cupcakes or a gluten-free cake, if you want a healthier option or if you have guests with special dietary needs.
Don’t think you have to break the bank to have a wonderful, memorable wedding day. Just use some of the tips provided here, you will have a beautiful wedding without spending more than you had planned.
