Accept Help When it is Offered

Your family and friends may have offered to help once they heard you were getting married. Take them up on their offers. Remember, you don’t have to control everything little detail of the planning process. Maybe your old college roommate knows a good DJ. Tell her to call him and make an appointment. Or maybe your cousin wants to help with the floral arrangements. Let her. She might really surprise you. Do not turn down these heartfelt offers. Not only will it help relieve a lot of pressure on your part, but it will also save tons of money.

Don’t Buy Wedding Favors

Wedding favors are nice and cute, but most people don’t keep them once the wedding is over. Spend this money on considerate and thoughtful gifts for members of your wedding party instead. However, if you still want to give your guests a few beautiful wedding favors, choose something that is budget friendly. For example, buy or make edibles such as candy, cookies or tea packets.

Don’t Buy a Wedding Dress: Rent Instead

Yes, every bride dreams of walking down the aisle in a beautiful wedding dress, and you are no different. You want the prettiest dress in the bridal shop. But if you’re not interested in keeping the dress, rent one instead. It is less expensive, and you won’t have to worry about what to do with your dress after the big event is over.

It is your wedding and you can make it special regardless of how much money you decide to spend. Begin your marriage free of the burden of wedding debt!
