Planning a wedding can be an expensive venture. There are lots of things that will eat at your budget, and it can be hard to know where to save money and where to spend money. Luckily, we have put together a list of areas to save in when planning a wedding, to make your life a little easier.
1. Wedding jewelry
There are so many beautiful, inexpensive wedding jewelry options out there, including a wide variety from us. Whether you want pearls or to shine like a diamond, we’ve got you covered. The best part, none of the options in our selection will break the bank. Many brides think they need real diamonds, but there’s no real point in spending that kind of money for something that may go in a box with your dress or on a display, never to be worn again. Instead, save some money for other areas of your wedding.
2. Use a website for wedding information
This is a great way to not have to spend money on an insert card inside the invitations, but still allow your guests the ability to find all of the information they may need for your wedding. This can include a dress code, directions, information on seating or the ceremony, as well as food selection, song requests, and information about a plus one.
3. Assemble invitations yourself.
Now, this is not the most fun, but it can really help with saving money when you have 200 invitations and need them assembled and addressed. Gather up your bridal party, make it a party, and knock out stamping and addressing those invitations in one night with your girls by your side.
4. Fill out your bouquet
You can save some money on your bouquet by using greenery to help round out your bouquet. It’s much cheaper and will add a beautiful natural touch to accent the rest of the flowers.
5. Make your own centerpieces
You’d be amazed what can be done with a vase, flowers, water and tea lights. You can create gorgeous centerpieces, rather than purchase them, and not only will everyone ooh and ahh, but your tables will have that special touch that only your DIY style could provide.
There are so many other areas to save in when planning a wedding, these are just a few suggestions to get you going. If you really sit down and discuss the budget together, you’re sure to pull together a budget-friendly beautiful wedding.
