#10 Tips for Budget Brides

23Ladies / Gentleman – are you on a tight budget but still want a romantic wedding??

My husband and I got married 09/09/09 – on a Wednesday

Tip 1# – Pick a day that means something special to you and yours, also your guest list will be less. Don’t worry about hurting people’s feelings that it’s not convenient for them – it’s all about love, not entertaining your guests on your expense.

Tip 2# – We did a back yard garden ceremony – no extra cost for a venue.


Tip 3# – Invitations use print master gold (DIY) / wedding favors DIY.

Tip 4# – Photographers – we explored photographers that were good but didn’t have wedding experience and they offered us a TFP = Trade for Print so they could use our photos for their up and developing website.  BTW – they are now professional wedding photographers.

Tip 5# – Dress – under $200.00 didn’t purchase from a bridal shop (but if you do look at bridal shops go off season sales), simple elegant and ivory / white. Brides maid dresses from retail shop $20.00 each. We did our own hair and make up…

Tip 6# – Food and drinks (either finger or tapa’s) so much cheaper than sit down dinners, we bottled our own wine / bought some beer and served water.

Tip 7# – Hired a friend (DJ) for the wedding, they will often give you a reasonable discount and they can be a guest as well for your wedding.

Tip 8# – Pawn shop wedding rings – something old / something new.

Tip 9# – Flower / decorations  – dollar store and DIY.

Tip 10# – Honey moon – 2 nights at a local B&B on a River Float House, no travel needed.

Remember – weddings don’t have to be a huge expense – but if you want an expensive wedding I can help you too… #BrideOnABudget
