Fa la la la la! It’s our favorite time of the year! One filled with hot cocoa, crisp weather, gift giving and yummy treats. And of course, lots of holiday party ideas!
You want your wedding day to be a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, memorable event, but you don’t have an unlimited budget. Here are some wedding ideas that will help you keep costs under control. Even one or two of them could save you hundreds of dollars!
Flowers: A growing trend at larger flower stores and farmers markets is to offer DIY workshops where you can bring friends and create your own bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres or floral decorations a few days before the wedding. We’ve also heard of people offering to do it as a gift to the wedding couple. Another way to save money on flowers is to go green and skip the flowers altogether. Create your bouquets and arrangements out of greens only, which are less expensive than flowers.
Invitations: Wedding invitations can run from ultra high-end to DIY. If you’re considering a rustic or more casual theme, this might be a good place to save money. Pear Tree offers beautiful two-sided wedding invitations for less than $1 each!
