A wedding dress is a big expense. To help defray the cost of a wedding gown, you may wish to shop for dresses that may not be considered a wedding dress. You could try a bridesmaid dress, and it would be cheaper than an actual wedding dress. Even with some alterations to complete your vision for the dress, it could be less expensive in the end.
When you don’t have a lot of money but do have a lot of time, think about printing your own invitations to your wedding. Invitation kits cost a fraction of what completed invitations do and also allow you to choose everything, from your own ink color to your own font as well as wording.
If you feel as though it is wasteful to pay hundreds of dollars for a cake that will have a lot left over, consider a smaller bakery to create a smaller cake that will cost less and be more personal. Many bakeries will offer healthier options, such as 100-calorie cupcakes, fruit fillings, meringue toppings, or gluten-free ingredients.
Potted plants in varying sizes can be placed throughout the reception and ceremony areas for a quick and affordable floral motif rather than using traditional flower arrangements. Colorful pots can be decorated with paint, ribbon, or decoupage to make the arrangements even more lively. When the wedding is over, the guests can then take those plants home with them as a favor and have a constant reminder of the new couple.
Remember that the reason for a wedding is marriage, not an excuse to throw the perfect party. If you have planned ahead, your wedding will be a smooth and memorable transition into the next phase of your life beside the person you hold dearest.
