Smart Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding

We've put together a few tips and tricks to help you save a bit of money on your wedding so you can enjoy your big day with less worry!

Consider a weekday

One of the biggest costs of a wedding is the wedding party venue. Thursdays or Fridays can be a lot cheaper, and if your guests can’t take the day off work for you, consider having it in the evening so that they can come after work.

Non Wedding Retailers

Avoid the ‘wedding’ price tag

You'll be amazed at how quickly the price tags can rise when you say you’re getting married. Try looking for non-wedding retailers to meet your needs. For example, buy your flowers from a flower wholesaler and DIY your own centrepieces rather than those from a wedding florist.

Fake Your Cake

Fake Your Cake!

It's becoming increasingly common for couples to fake their wedding cake. The price of getting a three-tiered professionally iced wedding cake can be very costly!

Alternatively, you can source a baker to decorate a cardboard 'cake' and just have the smallest tier made of real cake. That way, you still have a real one to cut into. No one will ever know the cake isn't 'genuine.' What's not to love? You get a stunning looking wedding cake for a fraction of the cost!

Skip The Bouquet

Skip the Fresh Flower bouquet

Fresh flowers can be very expensive, especially at certain times of year. Think about a wedding bouquet with crystal pearls and ribbon flowers. Believe it or not, it’s dazzling, saves you money, and the best part is you have a keepsake for afterwards!

No Favour

Don't Bother with Wedding Favours

Not providing wedding favours is such an easy way to save money. If you stop and think about it, most of us forget to take them home or, if we do, we throw them in the rubbish a week later! So, rest assured these won't be missed- especially as your guests will be too busy chatting and enjoying your special day to notice!

Online Shopping

Don't DIY everything!

Don't get us wrong; some things are cheaper to do yourself. However, it's easy to get carried away with the Pinterest crafts you've accumulated on your pinboard! By the time you've bought all the stuff and spent hours creating these masterpieces, it can sometimes be cheaper to out-rightly buy similar style decorations, especially if you leave time to order from overseas. So, don't get caught out, be sure to do your research beforehand!
