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!
