With the pennies being tighter than usual at the moment, saving is everything, especially when it comes to weddings and as they say take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves.
So here are my 6 top tips of DON'T DO'S to help you save money on your wedding. They all have one theme in common and that's quantity, you'll understand what I mean when you keep reading.
So let me explain...
'Take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves'
Favours are lovely, they can be really personal and don't get me wrong I am a fan of favours but, they also get left behind on tables, people forget about them or thrown them away once they get home and they are EXPENSIVE!
If you're having a wedding for 100 - 150 guests these seemingly inexpensive favours of £3 - £5 each start to really add up and take up a good chunk of budget (which could be spent elsewhere). So don't bother!
Now maybe slightly controversial (and I love stationary!), but why not spend your invite budget on beautiful personalised 'on the day' stationary and make those super detailed rather than spending money on postal invites.
Again it all goes back to quantity, an invite might not seem that expensive but once you add them all up for your guest numbers then include the envelope, postage, the rsvp card which then also needs a return envelope and stamp your allocated budget then sky rockets.
Save that budget by sending e-invites or creating a wedding website and spend it on something else!
