Wedding planning can oftentimes be stressful due to how much things cost. Instead of stressing out about the price of everything, find ways to cut expenses, without settling for less than a perfect day! This blog will include help tips + tricks of how to save money easily while wedding planning! 

Use your Florals More than Once

A great way to save money is by using your flowers and bridesmaids bouquets to help decorate at the reception! This will save money for decorations and additional flowers for the reception. Make sure you ask your bridesmaids to bring their flowers directly to the reception or have your wedding coordinator plan this in advance!

Consider Other Days of the Week

Usually venues are way cheaper on days other than Saturday. A lot of people tend to book on Fridays or Sundays to save money on their venue. If this is something you would consider, you could save thousands!
