Weddings are expensive. This is one of the most important days of your life and you want it to be perfect but you don’t have to spend a fortune on your special day. Here are some ways to save money on a wedding from Katrina at Enchanted Savings.
I made my own wedding invitations. I found that the style of invitations I wanted is actually one of the most expensive to buy and you still have to put them together. I made my invitations 3 layers – one sheet of fancy colored paper, one sheet of regular printer paper, and one sheet of vellum and tied them together with a piece of ribbon. I printed them all on my printer at home and used a small paper trimmer like you would use for scrapbooking.
There are a few reasons how using postcards for your RSVPs can help you save money on your wedding invitations. Using a postcard will save you a few cents per stamp for your RSVPs, you won’t have to buy envelopes, and they will make your invitation lighter to mail.
Don’t send square invitations. They cost more to mail than rectangular cards. Also, don’t put anything that you don’t need in the invitation. My invitations consisted of the actual invitation, one sheet of card stock for the RSVP, and one sheet of regular printer paper with a map that had hotel and reception information.Continue reading

Planning your wedding is one of the best times of your life, and can also be the most expensive, so learning how to plan a wedding on a budget can take a little stress of you and your wallet! When it was time to plan my wedding, I got all the bridal magazines, and went to all the bridal shows, and what I learned from them was this: I can’t afford anything. Yep, nothing. The magazines talked about crystal encrusted gowns, and custom aisle runners, and it just wasn’t in the budget. I thought I was doomed to have a wedding in my backyard while wearing a potato sack. Well, that didn’t happen, and with a little bit of creativity and some great friends and family, I had my perfect wedding!
For example: I found this dress pretty deeply discounted, but I did not like that the back of the dress was a plain zipper, I asked the seamstress if she could add a corset, and she could! All I had to do was pay for the fabric and labor (about $100)
Do you have any tips of your own? I would love to hear them!

With two families coming up within the next 1-2 years, I knew I had to help my sister and “future’ sister-in-law so they wouldn’t go thru the same problems I faced. Here is a simple guide to show you how many items you should register for in each price category. Print it out and take it with you and you will find gift registering a breeze.Continue reading
