So my partner and I have to put our wedding on hold because of the money issues we are having so I was thinking about signing a wedding on a budget and I'm looking for some advice or even some recommendations on some of the places you have gone to get your flowers or your Venue
I’m buying all my decor off of buy & sell sites! I’ve already saved 500$ on my napkins, table cloths, and chair covers compared to a rental place! Ridiculous how expensive things get.. I even fell Inlove with a 400$ bridal belt and found it second hand for 225$. The only things we’ve bought new so far have been my dress, veil, and the fiancés suit. Regardless of how much I’ve saved I planned on having a maximum $10,000 wedding but we sat down to calculate everything we need and it’s up around $15,000 now lol definitely have some more bargain hunting to do! I wish you luck and hope you find all the deals! ^_^
There are so many DIY ideas out there for decorations, thats how we are doing it! As for venues there are some hidden gems! Because we planned for the off season and shopped around, we got an amazing deal at a beautiful local golf course where a lot is included!
Pinterest!! There are so many great DIY Ideas for decorating. Also, I ordered quite a few things like cake toppper, photo booth props, organza favor bags from Aliexpress. It's super cheap BUT make sure you read the product&seller reviews and order in lots of time. Some items came in 2 weeks, some 2-3 months.
I am getting my flowers from Costco, putting them in painted rustic mason jars. i bought my mason jars off someone from Kijiji really cheap. I would look at kijiji or buy and sell groups for wedding decorations people may be selling as well
If there is some family property that could host your wedding you save a lot on venue costs. You can also save by making your own decorations and creating your own reception playlist instead of hiring a DJ or band.
I have heard of people getting their flowers from Costco. If you are looking for fake flowers - hit up Michaels at the end of the season - they always have great clearance deals and sign up for their emails - they always send out 40-50% off coupons! Check and see if you have any local bridal facebook pages - Some girls give away their stuff for very reasonable prices just to get rid of it!
