Favors: This is another easy way to cut costs on your special day. You don’t have to have a favor for every single guest because most people may not even take it with them. An easy way to make sure you don’t over do it is with a candy buffet. Not only are these beautiful to look at, but each of your guests can take exactly what they want. AND….you can customize it to go with whatever your colors are! Here is an example from Pinterest.
Bouquets: I know it probably sounds scary to try and do your own bouquet, but check this out. Not only do you have to get one for yourself, but your bridesmaids all carry one and then you have one to toss to the single ladies. That’s a lot of flowers! You could always have your main bouquet ordered and make the rest. It really can be as easy as picking out flowers that you like and wrapping a beautiful ribbon around the stems. Keep them in a vase of water to keep them fresh. OR, check out this bouquet from Etsy that doesn’t even use flowers!
Decorations: Chairs, tables, entryways…everything has to be decorated for the wedding and that adds up quick. If you can take on some of this yourself it will add up to substantial savings. Doing simple ties on a chair and making your own lanterns, hanging pom poms and centerpieces can also add a personal touch. Look at this beautiful table! Would you believe this was made from yarn, glue and a balloon?
