A few tips to save some money.

I was a little lucky my friend recently got married which means I could take some of her leftovers like bubbles and a cute wire birdcage for holding gift cards! some of you may not be as lucky as that but there are still other ways you can save money!

Also consider making your bridesmaids their jewelry to wear for the ceremony. It can be much cheaper to make it than to buy it. for example I wanted my bridesmaids to wear pearls. I really would rather not spend money on jewelry since Im getting them a separate gift other than jewelry so I went to michaels and bought stretchy cord and a pack of pearl beads. I made one for myself and they are so cute!

Planning Books

I have come to realize that a lot of wedding planning books/binders etc have more than you need. So, instead of paying the price for this just go buy a regular notebook or journal. This is what I did. I take it with me everywhere I the florist to my venue everywhere and I take notes in it. I also use it to paste pictures in that I like so that i can then use them to show a florist photographer or whoever. It is very personalized and helpful to have every you need in one spot and nothing that you don't need. It is also a great keepsake after the wedding is over!
