Tips for planning your wedding on a budget

Want to plan a fabulous wedding but don't want to break the bank? Check out the following tips for ways to plan your wedding on a budget:

  • Get married in off-season months: January, February, March and November.
  • Get married on any day but Saturday.
  • If you can't afford a designer gown, think about renting one instead.
  • Most big bridal shops have big sales each year. Be sure to take advantage of this.
  • Using silk flowers can save you lots of cash, and best of all, they're already preserved. The bride can use fresh flowers, but no one else really needs to.
  • You can use silk flowers to decorate the ceremony and reception venues as well.
  • Check out dollar stores when shopping for candles and candleholders. Additionally, dollar stores and places like Wal-Mart have many items you can use to decorate.
  • Try to choose one person who can do both hair and makeup.
  • Hire a caterer that provides everything you'll need such as glassware, plates, tablecloths, etc.
  • Try to find a venue that will let you bring your own alcohol.
  • Wedding coordinators can save you money; they are aware of additional ways to save money, they know what to say and ask your vendors, and they have connections in the industry.
