Wedding planning can be stressful.
It can also break your bank if you don’t do planning right.
Yes, it should start from the proper wedding budget.
And yes, stick to it.
This is one of the mistake brides, couple do.
Not sticking to their wedding budget.
But this is for another story.
This post intend to provide some wedding savings tips.
You can check out and try.
The Saving Tips…
#1 Go digital
On this 21st century, who’s not into digital?
There are many sites online where you can create online invitation.
Send the link of your created invitation.
RSVP confirmation is faster.
And cheaper since you can save a few hundred or thousands for the printed invitation.
Or if you are not an artist, you can browse in Printed Kolekzion lists here.
You can save on creating your invitation.
But still have the professional vibe your wedding guests can see.
But more cheaper than getting a printed one.
Here are some sites you can visit:
1. Canva – This tool is my favorite. I even create my products here. Canva give you free templates you can easily use.
#2. Get weekday as wedding date
Let’s face it, cutting wedding guests is really hard.
You can also read tips here on how to cut wedding guest lists.
But if you really could not decide who to cut as a wedding guest.
Then get married on a weekday.
Where you are sure only close family and friends will attend.
#3. Choose a venue that accepts outside suppliers.
Book your venue where they don’t offer their own catering services.
Or a place allowing suppliers without corkage.
With this you do have a choice to choose your own supplier.
Based on the quality and of course, the price.
#4. Hire a local.
Hiring suppliers can be tricky sometimes.
But the location to look first for suppliers should be within the area of your wedding.
#6. Skip the entourage bouquet.
I do love flowers, who don’t right?
But after few hours of ceremony, what happen to the wedding entourage bouquet?
They’ll leave it hanging around somewhere the wedding reception.
Then, why don’t skip having it right?
You can replace it using wands.
I think I can write another blog for replacements.
But for now you can check out if bridal bouquet is still worth having.
#7. Stick to your budget.
Spend only on what you intend to spend.
Remember getting married is a start of having life together as couple.
You don’t want to spend all your savings on a one day celebration.
And do not have anything left to start the family!
