Try to create your own invitations
If you and your fiancé are tech savvy, you may choose to purchase a much cheaper do it yourself invitation kit that
you can design using your own computer as opposed to spending four or five times the amount on professionally
The products on the market today are of very high quality and when done well, can look even better than the similar
products done by professionals. If you choose to create your own invitations, be sure to spell and grammar check
them diligently before pressing print!
Have more than one person proof read the draft before you print them out in mass to ensure that the details of time,
date, and location are correct. It will not prove to be as significant a savings if you have to purchase multiple
packages because of errors.
Try home made favors
Homemade favors can be a wonderful, personal touch to add to your wedding. If you choose to do a “do it yourself”
favor for your wedding, ensure that it is something you enjoy doing (because you are probably going to have to do
more than one or two of them!) you have enough time to do it properly and have it done in a timely manner.
You do not want to find yourself scrambling to finish a project the night before your wedding. Rushing at those times
can lead to sloppy workmanship which will not be the reflection you want on your wedding!

Budgeting is really not a very fun task at any time, but especially when you want to ensure that your big day is going
to be the beginning of your “Happily Ever After” story, and you want it to be perfect. It can still be perfect when you
operate within a budget.
You will need to prioritize your wants and renegotiate your budget if necessary. Your wedding day is about the two of
you, so be true to yourselves and make it a day to remember.
