The Do the Bride a Favor site discusses wedding ideas that may stretch that dollar

Prompted by the Baltimore Sun’s article on affordable wedding planning ideas, the Do the Bride a Favor site agreed with some of their ideas for cutting costs during wedding preparation.

Weddings can be very expensive. When considering everything that goes into wedding planning, it can almost feel like just the ceremony itself can put the family into debt. Because we believe every penny counts, Do the Bride a Favor shares their favorite money saving tips discussed in three different areas of planning.


Flowers are the center to the wedding ceremony. When talking with the florist, see if there is a way to reuse the flowers for other purposes. For example, balls of flowers that hang decoratively during the ceremony can later be used again during the reception. If the bride is really artsy, Do the Bride a Favor recommends creating a wedding centerpiece using flowers of her choice. It can add an extra bit of personality and flair to the event.


Everyone appreciates the taste of delicious food and since it is something that guests will value as well, it is important to not skimp on this area. There are ways to skimp in cost, however. A simple way to do this is choosing only one dessert or do custom wedding chocolates. With all of the appetizers that a guest will be served, it's likely that by the time dessert rolls around, guests will either be full or won't need a vast selection of choices.


Drinks like wine and beer can end up being a little on the expensive side. There are also many non- alcoholic drinks to consider as well, like tea, coffee, and soda. But there is no need to order every kind of drink. Since the couple knows those who will be in attendance best, consider what drinks they would appreciate. Do the Bride a Favor suggests checking in advance at the venue to see if there is a soda machine available for use at the hall.

A wedding is one of the most momentous events for the bride and groom. But the cost of having a great ceremony and reception do not have to be unreasonable. Though these three areas may seem small, Do the Bride a Favor believes that following these steps can change how much the couple can save in preparing for their big day.
