Let’s face it, not many newlyweds start their lives together with ridiculous amounts of money. If your wedding budget is smaller than you would prefer, don’t make the mistake of thinking your wedding has to be unmemorable and boring. Here are five ways to achieve your perfect fairy tale wedding on a tight budget.
If you’re dealing with limited funds, save money on your wedding venue by choosing inexpensive or free locations. Churches, parks, beaches or even a friend’s house can provide some of the most beautiful wedding backdrops while costing you very little or nothing.
Rather than serving your guests an expensive meal, serve affordable yet delicious appetizers, desserts and hors d’oeuvres. Ideas include cheese and crackers, bruschetta, deviled eggs, mini quiches, stuffed mushrooms, cake slices and cheesecake.
Alcohol is expensive, so opt for cheaper options that are gentle on your bank account and can serve a lot of people. Ideas include lemonade, fruit punch and tea.
Saturday is the most popular (and most expensive) day to get married. You can save money by getting married on a weekday or a Sunday instead.
Enlist some friends or family members to help you save money by making your own décor. This can actually be a lot of fun and may become one of your favorite wedding day preparation memories. For rustic weddings, consider making crafts out of mason jars, tea lights and burlap strips. For more formal weddings, consider more sophisticated crafts like floating tea lights and rose petals in decorative wine glasses.
Set the mood for your simple and inexpensive fairy tale wedding by sending out simple wedding invitations in elegant colors a few months before the big day. Don’t forget to purchase customized napkins, table number cards and all other stationery well before the big day arrives so you will feel more prepared and relaxed in the days leading up to your celebration.
"Beautiful cards. I got them printed on the shimmer paper and put them into laser cut envelopes I got from another source. So elegant and clean. Staff is AMAZING. Very kind and attentive, everytime I called them, they were very helpful and patient. My invitations arrived 1 week before scheduled delivery. Fast service! For canadian customers, please remember you will be charged the current exchange rate and duties via UPS (a few little surprises I forgot about when paying)!"
"This suite turned out beautiful! I went with the double-thick matte paper and was very pleased with the quality feel. Worth the extra. The blushes and corals are true to what you see online. Very elegant! Turnaround time was quicker than promised and any edits were made quicker than expected."
"These invitations were better than I expected. They were absolutely stunning. I was extremely impressed by the customer service of Wedding Paper Divas. They stand by their products and won't settle for anything less than flawless. I appreciate their service and I'm highly satisfied with my order!! My Save the dates were beautiful too!!!"
"Was worried about ordering the invitations online, sight unseen, but I could not be happier with the end result! They were delivered a week before I expected them, and the quality of the paper and over product was exceptional."
"I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT! I was planning to do my own invitations but when I saw the price of wedding paper divas I was amazed! I was worried they wouldn't be the best quality for what I paid for such a cool design, but they are awesome! I have had so many compliments from the people I have showed. I had two things personally changed on the RSVP card and they were great with my personalized requests! They sent me my proof right away! I ordered my invites on a Wednesday, and the NEXT Tuesday I had them at my front step! LESS THAN A WEEK! Great Service!"
