Every bride deserves to have the wedding of her dreams, even brides with a smaller budget! Below are 5 great ways to save money on your wedding day!
1. Hire a Planner

2. Design and print own invitations
If you are a creative soul, designing your own invitations is not only a great way to save money, but also a fabulous personal touch to your wedding. If you need help designing the invitation but have access to printing to save on costs, there are many reasonably-priced downloadable invitation suites on Etsy!
3. Signature drink vs full bar
Having a full liquor bar can be quite pricey, especially with a larger guest count. Try having a groom and bride signature drink for those that prefer liquor over beer and wine. This is also another way to personalize your wedding!
4. Book on a Friday or Sunday
Venues are often cheaper to rent on Fridays and Sundays, and even cheaper to rent on the weekdays if that is an option for you.
5. Buy florals from a warehouse club or online wholesaler
Flowers can be a big expense for a wedding, especially when you start adding flowers to the alter and centerpieces.
