Helping Hands | Budget Wedding Advice
“DIY whatever you can, and utilize the skills of your friends and family members to create all that you can before using an outside vendor or purchasing decorations.”
Natalie (Sweet Wedding in Glouster, OH)
“All of the bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done at a local beauty college. It was super cheap compared to a different salon (we went for trials first to make sure everything would work out, though) and was a ton of fun.”
Ashley (Amazing Wedding In Mount Pleasant, MI)
“Make a list of must-haves, think of what’s really important. We had a lot of extra wants that weren’t must-haves, and we dropped those of the budget didn’t allow it. I also shopped around a lot. The flowers were a huge deal, Sam’s club was awesome for that, they delivered the flowers for free and they were so fresh and beautiful – and cheap!”
Fern (Personal Wedding in Maine)
“My all time favorite budgeting tip is skip the expensive flowers that will die and do one big giant fake flower bouquet (mine will last forever), and alternative table center pieces. Best decision we made at our wedding that saved us a bunch.”
Lindsey (Beautiful Wedding in Los Angeles, CA)
“Document everything and save all receipts and contracts. Be realistic and try to be as flexible as you can. Compromise when necessary.”
Maria (Memorable Wedding In Long Island)
