Tip 1: Invite close friends and family

There are a lot of pros and cons with inviting everyone you know to your wedding {more on that later}. When you are trying to cut costs, keeping it just close friends and family will save you on invitations, catering, and rentals. Send announcements to your extended family and distant acquaintances.

Tip 2: Find unique wedding venues that aren’t high dollar.

Inexpensive venues may seem difficult to find, but sticking to public parks, beaches, or non-profit organizations, you can save thousands!!

Tip 3: Provide your own cocktail hour.

Every venue has health regulations, so make sure you double check first. By supplying the hors d’oeuvres and beverages, such as tea and lemonade, you can save a couple hundred!

Tip 4: Hire a planner for day of coordination only.

If you have a planner, use them for day of services. This way you have the best of both worlds, you get your planner, but you aren’t breaking the bank!

Herbs as Centerpieces and Favors

Tip 5: Purchase and use wedding items that have multiple purposes.

Buying wedding shoes or the groom’s suit that can be worn more than once. Also, some wedding favors can double as centerpieces. Using fresh herbs in planter can make for beautiful centerpieces. Leave a sweet note letting your guests know to take their favorite herb home with them!

Tip 6: Use your Resources that are right in front of you.

RESEARCH! RESEARCH! RESEARCH!! Internet, business cards at your local church, or even websites like Groupon!! Use social media, chances are your friends know someone who can help you out! They may know a DJ, a graphic artist for invites, or have an Aunt that moonlights as a baker!
