Planning Your Wedding
Cost effective weddings can be just as grand as one you had paid through the nose for.
The size of the guest list and the wedding budget will determine how much the couple will spend on wedding favors. Wedding favors that require assembly will generally be less expensive. The bride and groom may decide to purchase a limited number of expensive favors to give as "thank you" gifts to guests that traveled a great distance to participate in the celebration.
Take the bridal gown a very costly wedding accessory of which can set you back hundreds of pounds even reaching a thousand and over - of which you only get to wear once, so bear this in mind and consider buying a second hand wedding dress. A used bridal gown will have only been worn once - so you could say the dress is as good as new. When planning your wedding, and counting the pennies is a top priority then down size on how many tiers of wedding cake is to sit as a centre piece on the wedding breakfast table.
Wedding cakes are baked with an assortment of ingredients - rich in taste and texture, but not to every ones taste or liking, so therefore to please all the wedding guests and your pocket - why not have a sponge cake decorated in piped cream and edible tiny rose buds. By doing this you will have filled the bellies of all as well as your pocket. The savings from not having a caked baked with mixed fruit i.e. orange/lemon peel, marzipan etc can be put to better use. Another money saving idea in getting you to the church on time is to consider swapping the vintage Rolls Royce to a smaller vehicle adorned with ribbons.
Some popular and unique practical wedding favors available online include: scented candles, incense, handmade soap, miniature bottles of wine or spirits, herb plants, fortune cookies, lottery tickets, and refrigerator magnets. A few companies offer miniature jars of homemade jam and honey. And if the bride and groom can afford to spend up to .50 a piece for their favors, they can choose frosted glass coasters, leather "heart" luggage tags, compact "Love Beyond Measure" key chain and tape measure, assorted wine charms, chrome heart letter openers, and "love" corkscrew and bottle toppers.
