Tips To Keep Your Wedding Budget In Check

There are plenty of creative ways to save money while planning your wedding. The best way to start is to figure out your budget, and make a list of what is most important for you on your big day. For instance, if you’ve always wanted to get married at a certain venue but the summer event costs are super pricey, consider having a winter wedding, since venues are generally more budget-friendly in the colder months (with the exception of December, when corporate holiday parties come into play).

Picking what to save and splurge on can help you stick to your budget. For example, if you’ve splurged on a beautiful dress, you can save by borrowing a statement necklace from a close friend and fulfill the old adage of having “something borrowed”. Most importantly, have fun while planning your big day: you’ll want to remember the details and decorations for years to come.

DIY Beauty
It’s likely you’re better at either doing your own hair or your own makeup: pick one to DIY, and hire a professional for the other. That way, you can still feel ultra pampered on your big day while staying within your budget.

Swap Champagne for Prosecco or Cava
Skip the champagne and invest in prosecco or cava, which are less costly but taste just as delicious.

Metallic Ink
Use metallic pens, available at your local craft store, to dress up escort carts and stationery on the cheap.

Buy In-Season
Opt for flowers and menu items that are local and in-season during your wedding month to save a bundle.

Flea Market Centrepieces
Hunting around your local flea market for mismatched jars to fill with fresh cut flowers is a great way to improvise and create cost-effective centrepieces.

Use Jellybeans as Favours
Jellybeans are equal parts nostalgic and sweet, which make them the perfect wedding favour. Package them in decorative bags or mini-jars.
