When it comes to wedding planning advice nobody knows better than the team at Martha Stuart Weddings! We thought this was a great new set of tips and wanted to share them all with you today. Saving money any way you can is always a great thing during the wedding planing process and we hope you can benefit from a few of these! Check them out below…
1. RANK YOUR PRIORITIES: What facets of your wedding are most important to you? Focus on areas that make your heart go pitter-patter, and you’ll feel OK about skimping on the rest. As for what guests tend to remember, according to a survey conducted by St. Louis Bride and Groom magazine, 81 percent of guests say the entertainment is the most memorable part of a wedding.
2. RECRUIT FRIENDS – Think of it as cost-free outsourcing. Gather your inner circle, play to their strengths (e.g., assign lettering to the friend with the most beautiful handwriting), and turn the prep into a party
3. BE RUTHLESS WITH THE HEAD COUNT – Quick tips for whittling your guest list: Omit children and coworkers (making cuts categorically is less likely to cause rifts); and when it comes to couples, invite spouses, fiances, and live-ins only. Keep the numbers down for your wedding party as well: Fewer attendants means less money spent on bouquets, boutonnieres, presents, and transportation.
