Save On This, Splurge On That

Bride Holding Money Knows How to Keep Her Wedding Under BudgetYour wedding is one of the most special, memorable days of your life, and one that will inevitably make an impact on your budget. Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to have the day of your dreams. In addition to opting for an affordable wedding venue, knowing when to save and when to splurge can help you enjoy a satisfying wedding day experience without needing to take out a loan!

Save On This: Guest Favors

Think about it for a second: Do you still have any of the wedding favors you’ve received at any of the weddings you’ve attended in the past? We’re guessing you don’t. Wedding favors might seem like a big deal but if you’re needing to stay within a budget, consider making your own, skipping this tradition altogether, or simply making a donation to your favorite charity instead.

Splurge On This: Wedding Dress

Once you’ve determined your dress budget, it’s okay to look at dresses at the top of that budget limit (as long as you don’t go over). In addition to getting just the right dress, be sure that you don’t skimp on having alterations done professionally. An expensive dress that doesn’t fit correctly will look cheap and unflattering.

Splurge On This: Professional Photographer

Your wedding photos will follow you through the years, so hiring a professional photographer is a must! Professionals wedding photographers know how to work with the bridal couple, the wedding party, and guests to get the most flattering pictures. In addition, you may want to consider hiring a photographer who works with an assistant, allowing for candid shots of the guests during the reception.
