Let's face it, getting married can be expensive. You're spending a lot of money for one day of your life. However, expensive doesn't have to be stressful and it definitely doesn't mean that it isn't worth it. Following these money saving tips can go along way to having the best and easiest wedding ever!
The Envelope method
The envelope method can be used when budgeting for any expensive purchase or adventure but it's super helpful for weddings. For weddings, this method is great for putting some extra money aside to tip vendors, photographers and other event helpers. Simply write the name of each person or company that you need to tip on an envelope. Every time that you have loose change, add it to an envelope and by the time your wedding comes around, you'll have enough put aside to tip each vendor. This is great because you don't have to use money from your budget for these extra small costs!
Decide what is important to you
With so many bits and pieces of a wedding to plan, deciding what is most important to you and your partner is a great way to ensure that you are spending more on what you want. If the wedding venue is most important to you, it is okay to splurge on that. If you and your partner want to remember the day forever through photos and a wedding video, spend more on the wedding photographer. You can find ways to cut other things to make room for what is most important.
