You might not be much of deal seeking bride or a DIY diva; however, you will find many ways you can cut costs on your wedding day that do not include glitter and plywood.

Having arrangements makeup of merely several preferred forms of blooming can not only appear super chic but cost less than having a complex arrangement of 12 distinct varieties of blossom.
- Drop the ones that are a plus. Address invitations to JUST who’s invited to the wedding and allow it to be clear there isn’t any room for additional ones as a result of the size of the site. Fleeting boyfriends you have only met or work buddies’ partners you only ever see in the Christmas do simply do not make the cut.
