5 Handy Ways To Save On Your Wedding Day

Here are a few ways to save money when planning for your destination wedding! View more easy tips for saving from The Wedding Channel Online.

Go with posy bouquets
The posy is a rounded bouquet that usually consists of one type of small flower bound tightly together and accented with ribbons or other decoration. Sticking to one bloom variety will save you money, and you won’t need to buy as many.

Serve a signature drink
Having an open bar at your wedding is a generous gesture, but it will cost you! Alcohol is one of the most expensive items in a catering budget. Save money with this fun alternative: Design a signature cocktail recipe to introduce at the cocktail hour, and then serve it throughout the reception. 

Trade in cake for cupcakes
A lovely cupcake tower can be just as eye-catching as a tiered cake, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Host an hors d’oeuvres-only reception
There’s no rule that says you must serve a formal entree at your reception if it’s not dinnertime. Mix things up a little by asking your caterer to fill the menu with lots of widely appealing mini foods, like sliders or crab cakes, and then have them passed throughout the evening. 

Register for your honeymoon
Now that you’ve emptied your bank accounts on the wedding, you’re probably wondering how on earth you’ll afford a honeymoon. Fortunately, you're already in a dream honeymoon destination! However, registering for romantic activities (think: couples massage) is a way to make sure you'll still be able to afford fun activities!
