Simple Ways to Save

Published January 16th, 2016 by Unknown

Everyone knows weddings are expensive - but there are ways to cut costs without taking away from your overall vision for your perfect day.


  • Use more greenery than flowers.
  • Buy flowers that are in season.
  • Stick to just one or two kinds of flowers instead of a large variety.
  • Nix the flowers entirely in your decor! There are many creative options you can go with instead - vases filled with sand or floating candles, tree branches, etc.


  • Fake the cake. Use styrofoam tiers for the display cake and serve sheet cake to your guests.
  • Keep cake decoration simple; the more intricate the design, the more expensive.
  • Use fresh flowers instead of sugar flowers.
  • Skip the exotic cake fillings.


  • Lighter invitations will save on postage.
  • Give one favor per couple/family.
  • E-mail your save-the-dates.
  • Have favors double as escort cards.


  • Have bigger tables so there are fewer centerpieces and tablecloths.
  • Have your wedding in the off-season.
  • Hold your ceremony and reception in one spot; it will cut travel time for any vendors you pay by the hour.
  • Consider an early morning ceremony and brunch reception, they tend to cost less than those held in the evening.
  • Cut the guest list.


  • Skip the main course. Especially if you have a reception early in the day, a large meal is not necessary, and you'll be fine with drinks and appetizers.
  • Offer beer, wine, and a signature cocktail instead of a full bar.
  • Try a buffet or family-style dinner.
