But if you decide for a rustic, modern or minimalist wedding, . These types of marriage guarantee a saving of money, without losing the charm and beauty that the occasion demands.
7. Prefer station items and local suppliers
Choosing to buy station products and local vendors is a smart, sustainable, and cost-effective alternative. Flowers, fruits and other seasonal products can be found more easily, with better quality and at a much better price when they are in the right season.

8. Do-It-Yourself Decoration
“Do It Yourself” or “Do It Yourself” decoration is on the rise today. And this concept can be used very successfully at wedding parties. There are many things that the bride and groom can do to save money, from the invitations – as already mentioned above – to the party favors and decorations. However, it is important to gauge whether grooms will be available for this task, otherwise it is the old story of “cheap that is expensive.”
The buffet is without a doubt the most expensive part of the party and there is no escape from it, after all you have to guarantee the baby’s food and drinks. But it is possible to cheapen the cost without losing quality.
The first and most obvious tip is to research hard before closing with the company. Then evaluate each item on the menu that will be served and see if it is not possible to adapt the recipes or even serve simpler dishes.
Another option is to opt for finger foods, or changing kids, good old salty snacks and appetizers. The wedding hours also impact on the value of the buffet. Full meals will always be more expensive, so it may be worth getting married early and serving a brunch or mid-afternoon and serving such finger foods rather than a dinner.
10. Count on the support of friends and family
Those who have friends have everything. Prove that the saying is true and call friends, uncles, cousins, parents, and grandparents to help with whatever it takes. From the organization of space on the day of the party to the making of the souvenirs.
