15 Money Saving Tips for Weddings & Receptions

#1 Purchase a less expensive plain white dress and buy appliques at a yardage shop by the yard to enhance the dress with simple stitches. This can change a $500 dress into a $5,000 dress quickly.

#2 Expand the flowers for table décor with 2/3 greenery to 1/3 flowers.

#3 Use mirror rounds under the flowers to expand their appearance on tables.

#4 Have the bridesmaids carry one long-stemmed flower keyed into your wedding bouquet.

#5 Selecting “in-season” flowers for your bouquets and décor can save a third of the costs.

#6 Learn how to do your make-up prior to the event date and complete your own prior to putting on your gown.

#7 Hiring an event coordinator will often save you time (time is money) and funds by selecting from his/her recommendations of experienced vendors and ways to save. Most specialize in cutting costs.
