Inexpensive Wedding Ideas to Make Your Day Extra Special

Sep 15, 2008
While you do want to have an elegant wedding, it doesn have to cost a fortune. When you start planning your wedding, you should take the time to research inexpensive wedding ideas so that you can have the wedding of your dreams at a reasonable cost. You can enlist the help of family and friends to help you make the preparations for the wedding so that you won feel overwhelmed by all the work you have to do. This way everyone close to you can share in getting ready for your happy day.

The cake for your wedding doesn have to be one that you order from a bakery. Your mom or even you can make the wedding cake quite easily whether you want a fruit cake or you want to use an ordinary cake mix. Many craft outlets rent the bake ware needed for making the various sizes of cakes that make up a wedding cake for the low price of $1 a day. Make a cake every now and then in whatever size you want and then freeze the cakes. Make arrangements to have a professional decorate the cakes for you. This person will tell you how long the cakes need to be thawed before they can be iced and decorated. You can pick up the stands and other ornaments that you want to have on the cake quite cheaply at a dollar store.

Why pay a lot of money for wedding favors at a wedding supply store? One very inexpensive way of making your own favors is to buy a large amount of netting in whatever color you wish. This is available at craft stores, both online and off. Cut the netting into squares large enough to hold two Hershey kisses. Tie the netting together with small pieces of ribbon. You can buy the bags of kisses quite cheaply and have enough for a large number of guests for less than $10. Use your computer to type up a little note or verse of your choosing and print off the pages. Cut the messages apart using a scissors with corrugated edges and then staple a message to each little bundle of kisses.

For the wedding meal, if you prepare your own food, you will save a lot of money as opposed to hiring a caterer. In order to do this you enlist the help of neighbours and family members to do the cooking. You purchase the food and ask others to do the cooking for you. Then you can ask people not directly involved in the wedding party to set out the tables and serve the meal, as well as tea and coffee. You might also choose to have a buffet meal where everyone serves themselves, which eliminates the need for servers. If you really want to have an inexpensive meal, ask each of the guests to bring a dish with them for buffet. Then you won`t have to worry about what food to serve or have to plan the meal.
