Do the Bride a favor presented their wedding solution of the week. They discuss wedding expenses that could be mitigated by choosing alternatives.

Prompted by The Knot's recent article on wedding expenses, Do the Bride a Favor this week published their findings and unique tips on this often neglected area of wedding area planning.

When budgeting for a wedding, it's pretty easy for costs to spring up. When it comes to cash, there is always a need to save every penny possible. Here are 2 specific areas of hidden wedding expense to think about and tips on how to save money.

Area of Expense: Decor

Whether decorating for the ceremony or reception, there can be a few fees that may pop up. For example, choosing the flowers that complement the wedding theme may be great, but if the flowers are out of season, it's more expensive to buy. Costs for the importation of flowers can easily cause the bride to have to increase her budget.

Do the Bride a Favor Suggestion:

How important are the flowers? If the bride can go without, choose a lot of cheaper in season flowers. Flowers, no matter what the cost, make excellent wedding centerpieces. Try sprucing up the centerpiece a bit with candles.

Area of Expense: Hotel Charges

For guests who come from further away, it's likely they will stay in a hotel. Of course, there will be the usual charges for room service, massage parlor, pool and whatever else is available in the hotel. A seemingly tiny expense that can add up depending on how many guests stay in the hotel is the welcome bag provided by the hotel for arriving guests. Sometimes, this cost is not even mentioned at all but simply added to the final bill.

Do the Bride a Favor Suggestion:

Ask the hotel ahead of time if the welcome bags are required. If the cost can be avoided, forgo the charge. Be creative. If the bride feels a need to welcome guests, consider making personalized wedding chocolates. For those who really want to save money or have less guests staying at the hotel, dressing up snacks bought from vending machines with bags and bows can be a inexpensive substitute as well.

Hidden costs, though sometimes small, can really start to add up quickly. Read contracts at venues carefully for words like taxes, gratuity, overage charges. For brides with tight budgets, it is important to think ahead and plan in each area consciously.
