Money Saving Tips For Your Wedding

There are ways to save money on your wedding and still have a unique and personalized wedding. The next few blogs that I will be writing will hopefully help the couple save money while planning their special day, because its not about how much money you can spend on the wedding its about celebrating the love you have for each other with your family and friends.

I feel that it is better to have a wedding show the personality and of course the love of the couple come through in the personal touches in their wedding rather than having the most expensive décor, dress,..etc.

So if you are looking for a ways to save money while planning your wedding read on, and hopefully I can help.

Centerpieces:

This blog will be about saving money on your table centerpieces, which typically are flowers and are usually a big costs for most couples.

A good way to cut costs for your wedding is to look at alternatives for flowers; either in your bouquets, décor or centerpieces.

Some ways to save money is to have flower centerpieces and non flower centerpieces alternating on each table. You can also reuse your ceremony flowers in your reception décor. For example your bouquets and your bridesmaids bouquets can double as your head table décor.

If you are the crafty type of person you can even create your own flower arrangements as your centerpieces, sometimes the simplest arrangements can turn out beautiful.

Also you can opt for no flowers at all, there are all kinds of different things you can use for centerpieces, there is no rule that says you have to have flowers, so why not try something unique.

Here are a few different centerpieces that I thought could be used instead of flowers.

Books, Paper flowers

You can find books at thrift stores and you can make the paper flowers yourself, or get some crafty person you know to make them for you.
