With the economy continuing to struggle, post holiday recuperation, and people looking for ways to save money in most areas of their lives, Do the Bride a Favor presents tips to create a cost friendly wedding. A cheaper, more economic wedding does not have to skimp on the essentials.
Do the Bride a Favor reminds brides and planner that setting a budget is important. Think about how much needs to be spent and set a limit to how much is spent in the beginning stages, as ideas usually change during this time. The really important aspects like the wedding gown, the venue, and the cake will benefit from this type of advanced planning.
They also suggest cutting down the guest list as a good way to limit the budget. Less guests means a smaller venue and less food. While it may not be possible for every bride, simply cutting a guest list in half can make a big difference.
“For brides who have a large amount of guests, try using the numbers to your advantage. Recruit guests for help in planning, decorating and DIY projects,” Do the Bride a Favor advised.
More and more brides are opting to do a bulk of the planning by themselves and that can be great, but it can also be a bit overwhelming to tackle everything on their own.
Do the Bride a Favor cautions brides against taking on too many projects themselves. They said, “Brides can easily become overwhelmed from taking on too many projects. It's best to focus on one or two projects and begin as early as you can.”
A small DIY project that any bride can do is creating custom wedding favors. Thrift stores might have low cost and unique gift ideas. Kids in attendance would love something as simple and common as vending machine toys.
When it comes to saving money for a wedding, less is definitely more. The couple will appreciate what they save in cost while keeping what makes the wedding day special.
