Wedding Budget: 2 Big Money Savers


The whole purpose of your wedding planning budget is so that you don’t fall into the trap of overindulgence in the areas that are completely unnecessary. This is your big day, so of course you want it to be as special as possible, but the point of your budget is to spend on the important parts and cut back on those which you can do without (while still creating a beautiful wedding and reception).

There are two common expenses that often dig into the wedding budget much deeper than it had to. Those two things are wedding favors and the wedding cake.

Wedding Favors

When your guests arrive to witness your special day, they show up to celebrate your love with you and congratulate you. It’s ok if they don’t leave with high priced bottle of wine or some other type of gift that they actually don’t even want. While it’s a thoughtful gesture, it is really necessary and can take a big bite out of the wedding planning budget.

Wedding Cake

The size of the wedding cake is often the most costly when you think of it in terms of use versus price. Whenever you see a humongous cake at a wedding, there is almost always about half or more left over. Wedding cakes are expensive as it is, so be careful when choosing one. Bigger is not necessarily better. You can often get smaller wedding cakes that rival the bigger ones for a lot less money.

If you insist on having 3 or 4 tiers, then why not save money by having false centers or even filling it with flowers that match your wedding decor. It would still look beautiful, you wouldn’t waste food, and you still can fit a big cake into the budget.

This also starts to give you an idea of what you like in terms of style,

What you will find by searching online is that you will be able to get options in bulk that can save you money right off the bat. For instance, there are all kinds of templates available online that allow you to create your own invitations using software and then printing them out yourself. The design that you get from the free template alone can save you a ton.

If you happen to be the crafty type or have friends or family members that can help out, you may decide to check out your local craft shop or scrapbooking store for ways to create a personalized invitation. Not only will this save you money, but it can be fun and you will get great pleasure from creating them for your guests.

Keep in mind that invitations are most often thrown in the trash, so although you want them to look beautiful, going overboard with engravings, and other luxurious features may be unnecessary and put an unwanted dent in your budget where money could have been better spent.
