In April of 2011, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding was reported to cost an estimated 40 million dollars, that doesn’t mean that every wedding thrown has to match their budget to be absolutely beautiful. Take note while we go through simple tips and creative ways to save for your wedding.
Have a smaller cake for display with one or two layered tiers our for display then, purchase sheet cakes that will be served from the kitchen. Your guests will never know the difference. Also, keep the cake simple by going vanilla or chocolate, or with flavors and fillings that do not cost extra per slice. You can never go wrong with chocolate and vanilla plus, selecting simple flavors will keep picky guests from opting out of an exotic flavor cake that you’ve already paid for them to devour.
Think long and hard about your favor choice. It is always nice to supply a small token to say thank you for coming, but a lot of brides are disappointed at the end of the night when they see that guests have not taken their favors with them. Invest your favor money into a charity in your guests name. This way you’ll know the money is going to a good cause and not becoming indisposable by being left on the table at the end of the night. If you’d like a tangable gift then go with something practical by doubling up your favor and your placecard (also known as an escort card). Try candies in wedding themed boxes with favor tags on them that say each guest’s name with their table number on it.
Save the dates are nice for out of towners, but not completely nessacary if you want to cut budget corners. Consider emailing the save the date to the majority of your list. Try inserting your information digitally on a photograph and send it as an attachment via email to your guests. It is something that is cute and trendy to try. This will save on postage as well as the printing of the save the dates.
