When it comes to weddings, creativity often translates into money, as in significant savings for the bride and groom. Inspired by an article that appeared on the Huffington Post Weddings blog, Do the Bride a Favor offers these tips for spicing up one's nuptials while at the same time realizing a budget surplus.
First, in the area of gift-giving, personalized wedding favors will carry the day. One way to marry creativity with savings is with DIY candy favors. Think in terms of multi-colored jelly beans or red gumballs in clear glass jars with customized ribbons matching the wedding theme, or homemade chocolate bars with personalized wrappers. Then turn your creativity to the area of music. Skip the DJ and spin your own tunes at the wedding. Then compile a highlight list of memorable songs and turn it into a CD which can be dispensed to guests as a gift.
Secondly, there is the area of drinks. Do the Bride a Favor is intrigued by the idea of skipping the bartender and cocktail hour altogether in favor of bulk DIY concoctions pre-mixed and served in decorative decanters or punch bowls. Margaritas can be done easily in this fashion, as well as White Russians by the pitcher, egg nog, rum and coke, or vodka and pink grapefruit juice.
Finally, look to save money by cutting out the florist. Faux flower arrangements, when done tastefully are often hard to tell from the real thing. The added bonus in this area is that bouquets can be given away as a keepsake that will last a lifetime.
Do the Bride a Favor concludes that the more personalized and creative wedding planners are able to be (relative to every aspect of the celebration) the more money will be saved in the long run while adding unique personal touches that guests won't forget.
