Shop for Samples: It’s commonplace for bridal shops to have sales to clear out their remaining stock of each year’s wedding dresses in a sample sale.
Borrow from Friends and Relatives: Make your wedding ensemble more special by wearing items you’ve borrowed from family and friends. Wearing special jewelry, veils, or for men, cufflinks, and give your outfit a more personal and meaningful touch.
Share Costs: Check with the venue of your wedding to see if there are any other weddings that day. If there are, try checking with the other brides and grooms to see if you can possibly share some of the decoration costs.
Use Non-traditional Items: Get creative with your decorations and let them personalize your wedding. Try using potted houseplants or plain pillar candles as decorations. They can be less expensive than flowers and can be reused or sold at a yard sale after the wedding.
