How to have a Memorable Wedding Experience Without Splurging

When you’re in your 20’s and early 30’s, friends will start getting married, and you’ll attend a lot of weddings.

From buying a dress off the rack to seeking out a florist who works from home, there are dozens of ways that you can ensure that you will have your dream wedding without ever wondering if you should have splurged.

Here are some of the easiest ways to start cutting back on your wedding budget. 

Wedding Favors

Despite buying these tiny gifts for everyone, most people forgot to take one, and I probably could have done without them. Isn’t serving everyone a nice dinner enough?

We just picked up our favorite cookbook and asked people to sign it next to their favorite recipe. It’s great to read notes from everyone while you’re cooking!

The Wedding Dress

Your dress does not have to cost $5,000 for it to be the perfect one (despite what all those TV shows say!) Many people wear their mom’s dress, buy them off the rack, or on eBay for extremely low prices.

Do your friends a favor and don’t make them rent a tux for the same price that they could buy a suit. My husband bought a suit for our wedding, so he could use it again for other occasions.
