  • Don’t Be Afraid to Delegate

It’s okay to ask for help; you don’t have to do it all alone. If you feel the stress is too much, consider delegating tasks to other people, like your friends and family or even wedding vendors.


  • Choose an Off-Season Date

Wedding off-seasons run from November to March. There are fewer weddings during this period; thus, things are less expensive. Also, you can consider a day other than Saturdays. Saturdays are expensive. Vendors and venues are always fully booked on Saturdays hence a hike in cost.


  • Repurpose Your Flowers for Reception

You can repurpose your and the bridesmaids’ bouquets by using them as centerpiece arrangements at the reception. Place them in vases, and you will have lovely centerpieces.


  • DIY Decoration

Decoration doesn’t have to be expensive. You can check out DIY wedding ideas on platforms like Pinterest and save a lot on decoration.


  • Avoid Overtime

On your wedding day, try and keep to time to avoid paying overtime fees. If your wedding goes overtime, the DJ, photographer, drivers, and other vendors may need to stay around, which may cost you more.


  • Work With A Wedding Planner

Wedding planners can save you a lot of stress. They will work with your budget and connect you with vendors and venues that can offer you good deals.


  • Go For Digital Invitation

Paper cards can cost you a lot. You can save money on invitation cards by going digital. Online invitation cards are more comfortable, faster, cheaper, and will keep you organized.
