The first stage for many couples hoping to get married is setting a budget. This is easy to set but not so easy to stick to. Often, smaller costs add to the larger ones and can be more damaging, as they’re usually forgotten and therefore not factored into your budget. To avoid this, you and your spouse-to-be need to sit down and list down exactly what you want from your wedding, what you’re willing to pay for and where can you save money.
Wedding flowers are an obvious area in which to save money, either using fake flowers, or finding an innovative alternative for your day can save hundreds, if not thousands, depending on the size of your wedding. Sweets, for example, are a great wedding bouquet alternative, simply fashion them into a bouquet shape or use them as unique centerpieces on your tables. Personalised sweets can also add a personal touch and are still far cheaper than wedding flowers. However, if you’re set on having flowers but don’t want to blow your budget, giving your bridesmaids a single flower, instead of a whole bouquet is considerably cheaper and can also add a sweet, delicate touch to your wedding.
