Don’t shop at bridal salons
Visiting a bridal salon is one of a kind experience for all future brides, but buying a dress there can add a lot of expenses to your wedding budget.

For example – with these Target coupons you can afford a dress of your dreams and stay within your budget without any problems. Perfect!
Don’t get married on Saturday
For many couples, Saturday is a perfect day to get married because every one of your friends and family members can make it and have a blast all night. But if you are the frugal couple and want to save money instead of spending it – I would totally recommend you not to get married and don’t have reception on Saturday. Any other day of the week will cost you much less instantly, and you can still have a perfect party for all night fun. From catering to DJ – everyone will ask a lot less money to be at your wedding and give their services if that is not on Saturday. So – you will have everything that other couples have but pay much less for all of it!
Don’t serve a sit-down dinner
Frugal couples can save a lot of money just by simply not serving a sit-down wedding during the reception. You can find many other super great and fun alternatives for that, which equals the same amount of people and fun for sure. For instance, after the ceremony you can head out home for small snacks and drinks and then go crazy at the local club or bar. It will cost you lot less instantly, and you will have an unconventional but romantic wedding.
Don’t have a wedding cake
Wedding cake industry is gigantic, and you usually need to pay a big amount of cash to get a wedding cake for your reception. So why overpay for a simple dessert than you can have something else delicious to eat? For example, a few mini pies, or cupcakes with special icing can be a perfect alternative and still be sweet and super fun. Guests will love it; it can be easy for them to take some of it to home and it will be a real hit with your budget too!
Don’t hire professional photographer
Although everything that is left after the wedding is your photos and you wish to have them professionally made, you can get the same quality if you hire an amateur or a beginner photographer! Your wedding can be a perfect start for his career, and you might be surprised how creative such beginners of photography can be! Just to be sure, meet the photographer you have in mind, share your thoughts and dreams and look at his works. I can guarantee you will pay much less for a beginner and still have amazing pictures to look at afterward.
