So, you want to host the wedding of a lifetime but don’t really have the money to go all out. Have we got some frugal wedding ideas for you! Below are just a few ways you can save and really go big on your wedding day.
The Reception Table Accents On The Cheap
Greenery, greenery, greenery. I can’t say it enough! Greenery is a gorgeous accent to minimal flowers and candles. Candles and greenery spell cheap, yet elegant table decorations. You can get little green plants at a store like Lowe’s or Home Depot in the discount/sale section for even cheaper. Next, make your place settings yourself. Staples often runs an in-store 40 to 70% off one item coupon. Grab some stock and print place cards in your favorite font. Just like stationary, this is a great way to save big and still create an elegant table setting.
The Wedding Videography For Less
Go big or go home, right? You can go big and take a priceless wedding video home when you check out www.getweddeo.com. For the love of all things wedding videos – this is the way to cut costs in a huge way. You can choose from several different wedding video packages. Then get the sweet HD cameras sent right to you. Have friends and family, or a videography/film friend, shoot your wedding day from first look to epic send-off, and bam! Wedding videography for a quarter of the cost of traditional wedding videographers. Did we mention that we professional edit the content and help you design a sweet video? Yeah, Weddeo wants you to cherish your big day on DVD forever so we help you create the video of your dreams on your dream day. Learn how it works!
The Wine For The Right Price
Shop around for your favorite wines on discount. Many online companies sell in bulk. You can get cases on wine on super sale and have them shipped right to your venue. To cut costs place a bottle of white and red on each guest table and let people self-serve in lieu of butler service. Plus, they’ll be a bit more conservative thinking it could run out. Grocery and liquor stores often have closeout prices when it comes to buying cases of wine they can’t get rid of…do not be afraid to bat your eyes and negotiate with a store to see if you can get it even cheaper.
The Wedding Attire To DIY For
If you’ve decided to DIY your wedding, why not go a little more frugal with your wedding wear. The wedding is all about the experience – not so much about the $10,000 wedding dress. If you can afford to go that route we give you mad props! If you need something a little more frugal, why not RTR? Rent The Runway is a magical place where you can try and not necessarily buy. This magical store offers you designer fashion for a quarter of the price it will cost you to buy. Forget splurging on a dress to put in your closet for life, just RTR something that looks absolutely stunning in your wedding photos that will be sitting out for friends and family to see!
The Honeymoon Of Your Dreams
Combination destination/honeymoon weddings are all the rage. This can help you cut down on cost massively! So, you don’t want your parents on your honeymoon, I get it. Book a venue for three days. Tell everyone they are allowed over for one or two nights tops. Everyone helps you pack up on the morning of day three. You wave goodbye and have the venue all to yourselves for at least 24 hours. You can arrange a late checkout and do breakfast in bed with champagne before leaving. While it’s not a full week-long vacation – it’s something. When you are on a budget, well, it’s pretty great after you say your vows.
