Your Wedding: Savings and Splurges

Wedding-SavingsWhen it comes to planning your wedding, the bride and groom realize quickly just how expensive the event can be. In order to plan your special day on a budget that is comfortable, it is important to decide which areas to save on and which areas to splurge on. However, making those distinctions can be a difficult task. Here are some areas of your wedding to save your dollars:

  • Makeup- While every woman wants to look her best on her special day, spending money on makeup to make you look completely different is unnecessary. If you want to buy a certain brand or palette that is pricey for the special day, save by applying the makeup yourself or through a friend.
  • Veil- A wedding veil should never cost as much as the dress itself. Stick with a simple veil without the extra beading and lace to save.
  • Flower Girl- Your flower girl doesn’t need her own bouquet to walk down the aisle. Instead, save money by purchasing flower pedals that are in season, or even silk flower petals.
  • Chair/Pew Decorations – Flowers can be expensive, especially when you choose blooms that are out of season. Instead of adorning each chair and pew with a large display of flowers, use ribbon and chiffon to create your own decorations.
  • Bar Options- While it is no secret that an open bar is a guest favorite at any wedding, the price is no secret as well. Limit your bar selection to only beers and wine while also offering a few signature cocktails to help save.
  • Dessert- Why spend the money on an elaborate wedding cake if you or your groom don’t like to eat cake? Choose other dessert options that help fit your palette while also giving your guests more options.
