Wedding Planning – Saving Tips for your Wedding Day

There are different ways to trim the costs of your wedding ceremony without sacrificing style. From reserving a low-cost wedding ceremony site, to getting creative with décor, you can create your dream wedding and still stay within your budget.

Location. You can choose an outdoor location such as a botanical garden, a beach, or even a national park. You’ll often only pay the price of a permit, and the natural beauty of your surroundings precludes any additional decoration. You may also consider asking a close friend or family member to allow you the use of their beautiful home or garden as their wedding gift to you.

Décor. Potted trees strung with fairy lights are an ethereal alternative to flower arrangements, and can often be bought in your local area. Have your family members or your close friends transport them to the reception site. The Tables and Chairs can be properly arranged with the table clothes and table decor. Do-it-yourself aisle ribbons are easy to fashion out of wide ribbon or tulle available at craft stores, and silk flowers can be had for a fraction of the cost of fresh ones.

Accessories. Many craft stores sell plain ceremony accessories for extremely reasonable prices. Pick up a basic ring pillow, guest book, and then decorate them yourself with ribbon, beads, and fabric secured with a glue gun.

Flower Bouquet. Consider walking down the aisle holding a single rose, calla lily, or orchid (your bridesmaids can do the same). You can also replace the traditional bouquet with a meaningful token or heirloom, such as a family bible or rosary.

Whatever you decide, remember that the main focus of the wedding ceremony is you and your groom – not how much money you spent.
