4 Easy Ways to Save Money on the Big Day

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

Most people dance around this, but we like to tell it like it is: weddings can cost a lot of money. The dress, the venue, the décor, the cake – they can all add up to sums of money you might not have even considered before you started actually planning the Big Day.


Under these circumstances, it makes perfect sense that you want to save money anywhere you can on your wedding – and even more than that, you want to save money and make sure you still have the wedding of your dreams.


What are some of the most important tips to keep in mind in this respect? Here they are:

  • Consider a mid-week or daytime wedding. The more “offseason” and the farther away from Saturday evening your wedding is, the more likely it is that you will score better deals in terms of the venue, the décor, the food, and so on. The reason this happens is because vendors are less busy on these days and times of the day, so it is likely that they will be happy to offer you a discount.

  • Opt for simple greenery. Not only is this a really, really popular wedding décor element right now, but simple greenery can also be absolutely stunning in terms of how it makes a wedding look. Even more, greenery is the kind of décor element that can really save you a lot of money, as it is frequently much less expensive than actual blooms.

  • Skip the favors. Truth be told, nobody will even notice they’re not there. Sure, showing guests your appreciation is really nice, but most people don’t actually care about the nicely wrapped cookies and the fridge magnets with your engagement photo on them. If you want to, turn your candy bar into a “favor bar” by offering people the option to pack away some of the goodies.

  • Consider rental and slightly used décor and accessories. You might not want to do this with your wedding dress (and that’s totally fine), but you can still do it with your décor and with your jewelry. Why spend a ton of money on something that will only be worn or used once, when you can save the money (and maybe add it to your honeymoon fund)?

What to Do with Your Wedding Jewelry after the Wedding?

Monday, February 11th, 2019

You want to be the most splendid bride that has ever graced the earth with her smile as she walks down the aisle. And that’s perfectly understandable – every bride is unique in her own way, and her wedding day is a totally unique moment in her life. So yes, looking at your very, very best, is surely a priority on your list – and for a long list of good reasons too.

Your hair, your makeup, your dress – they all matter a lot. And so does your wedding jewelry – the precious pieces you will adorn your attire with to complement it in a beautiful and elegant way.

What happens with the bridal jewelry after the wedding, though?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Wear it. Who says you have to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a piece and only wear it once? If you feel that your wedding jewelry would be suitable for other special occasions too, you can definitely wear it. A small and dainty necklace can be worn even on a more casual basis, if you feel that it’s a nice way to remind yourself of the magic of the Big Day!
  • Keep it. Some brides want to preserve their entire wedding look for as long as possible. Dress preservations and bouquet preservations are a real thing, and it’s easy to understand why a lady might want to make sure these items look flawless for the longest time. You can do the same with your wedding jewelry too – but don’t forget to have it professionally cleaned every now and again if you want them to stay just as pretty as they are today! Who knows, maybe one day your own daughter will want to wear your blue earrings on her wedding day!
  • Sell it. Want to save some money (and maybe use it for a luxury honeymoon)? You can definitely sell your gently used bridal jewelry and accessories too – and this is something you can do with your dress and even with your wedding décor.
