Tips to save money

Tips to Save Money!

  • Get married in the morning, on a Friday or Sunday and/or in the winter months.
  • Keep the guest list small.
  • Make your own veil. Most craft stores sell how-to books and supplies. You can save hundreds of dollars by making your own.
  • Purchase your wedding gown at a place other than a bridal salon.
  • Supply your own alcohol if you’re able too.
  • Consider not having a dinner reception. Opt instead for a brunch, afternoon tea, cocktail party or dessert party.
  • Use silk flowers. They are always less than fresh flowers, plus they can be rented!
  • Decorate with more greenery and baby’s breath, and less flower blooms.
  • Make your own invitations. There are software programs available that can help you with this task, and you can purchase wedding desktop publishing paper.
  • Check out local universities for qualified and inexpensive musicians, photographers, and video-graphers. Professors will be able to point you to the best students in the program.
