5 ways to dramatically slash a wedding budget


Around this time of year, it can be hard to notice the twinkling of the sun on snow with all the diamonds shining from newly-occupied ring fingers, but soon after the glow of getting engaged starts to fade, thoughts of the wedding budget loom.

Rather than letting a lack of funds spoil the big day, though, why not kick your creativity into high gear and use one of these great ideas from Katie at Wedding Fanatics to ensure your day will stand out from the crowd but not break the budget?

1. Skip the Traditional Meal

Rather than going for the traditional sit-down wedding meal, go for something a little more modern and a little cheaper. Whether you choose a light brunch menu or have a candy buffet, you can save more money. A sit-down meal typically costs between $18 and $22 a plate whereas a candy buffet will run you about $300.

2. Buy Wholesale

Rather than purchasing your wedding supplies at regular retail outlets, purchase wholesale wedding supplies. From artificial flowers to candles and other wedding décor, purchasing wholesale will give you a big discount off the final price.

Full story at Wedding Fanatic.

Great ideas for the big day.
