Tips On How To Save on Your Wedding

1. Instead of decorating with floral centerpieces uses candles

2. Offer a wine tasting experience instead of a full car

3. Purchase alcohol from a store where you can return unopened bottles

4. Rather than allotting one slice of cake per person, order a cake that feed 75% of your guests. Alot of people  don’t eat cake especially if you are serving another dessert.

5. Hire a wedding planner

6. Choose a venue that is already beautiful

7. Set up fewer tables with more persons

8. Reuse flowers from the ceremony to decorate the reception

    I do know that you have a few retailers who will give liquor on consignment that would help with Tip #3

    Im not sure about #8 in terms of the coordination i dont want persons to arrive at the reception and see persons coming in with the flowers to decorate, it shows lack of organising to me.

    if cupcakes are cheaper, probably those could be used instead of a slice of cake.

    after listing everything – determine how far down the list you can cover without over-extending yourself
