August 31, 2018 | Posted in Trends, Weddings

Who said that you have to empty out your life savings to get married? Sure, there are couples who spend tens of thousands of dollars on their dream day, but does having a smaller budget mean your day can’t be just as special? We’ve helped our fair share of couples get hitched, and even those with tight savings were able to pull off the wedding of a lifetime. All it takes is a bit of creativity. Here are some wedding tasks that you can do yourself to cut down on the costs.

Wedding invites can set you back several hundred dollars, depending on how intricate you want them to be and how many guests you’re inviting. As beautiful as professional wedding invitations can be, you want to balance out the costs so you can splurge on things more important to you like the venue or wedding dress. You can create your own digital invitations and send them out online or purchase patterned cardstock and design, print, and mail your own wedding invitations. The same can be done for wedding programs.

Flowers are a huge part of the wedding ceremony and reception decor. If you want to reduce the cost of floral arrangements, you could consider making your own bridal bouquets and boutonnieres. Bouquets can be made from so many different things. You can go with origami or synthetic flowers and make a beautiful arrangement.

Wedding favors symbolize a small reminder of the day and a token of appreciation from the bride and groom. You can save on reception costs by making your own wedding favors. They can be very simple including buying wallet-sized picture frames and adding a picture of yourselves, purchasing candles and candle holders and wrapping them in tool and ribbon, or purchasing favors in bulk and personalizing them with ribbon, lace, and other decorative items.

These are just a few wedding expenses you can dramatically reduce by putting forth a bit more effort and doing them yourself. You can enlist the help of your bridal party for faster execution. In fact, make a girls night of it! Another great way to save on your wedding day would be to find a wedding venue such as Atlantis Ballroom in Toms River that offers affordable package prices and plenty of options to customize. Going with a package saves money because often times you can get a deal on decor and food when they are bundled together. Don’t hesitate to contact one of our wedding specialists for ideas and information on our packages.
