Everyone knows how expensive a wedding can get, but throughout my wedding planning process, I have discovered hacks here and there to save some money and keep money in your pockets! you can still have a nice wedding and not break the bank! Here are some things you can do to cut down on costs!
Use artificial flowers for some things. Now some people say that flowers are one of the most important aspects of the wedding, but they can also be pretty pricey. One way to cut back on costs is to use artificial flowers for some of your wedding things. For example, you can use fake flowers on your wedding cake, or even for your bouquet. It will save you a lot of money and you can keep the flowers as a keepsake after the wedding is over. Ling’s Moment has high quality artificial flowers and can be found on Amazon.
Rent the suits/tuxedos from a company that gives the groom his rental free. Men’s wearhouse is the company that we used for the suits and they have a deal where if you rent 6 suits, then the groom can get a rental or a custom suit for free. This can be a big help because of all the other things you have to pay for.
Use wedding wire for the wedding planning. I used wedding wire as a tool to plan my wedding. It is very helpful in that it allows you to make a seating chart for the reception, keep track of guests for all wedding events, and create a budget and keep track of payments. The money saving comes in the fact that there are vendors who have accounts on wedding wire, and if you book services through them on wedding wire, they will give you a discount.
Go to an affordable dress shop. I purchased my wedding gown from David’s Bridal, and they have dresses as low at 99 dollars depending on the time of year. Even though their dresses are cheaper, they are still of good quality. If you want to save money, you can go for a more reasonably priced gown, as you will only wear this dress one time most likely.
