If wedding bells are ringing for you soon, then you know things can get expensive quickly. So here are a couple of saving ideas when you're funding a wedding.

  • Think about having your ceremony and reception in the morning, on a Friday, or Sunday night and it won't cost as much.
  • Try to keep your guest list minimal.   
  • Make your own veil. You"ll find that most craft stores sell how-to-books and even supplies on designing your own veil, which can save you hundreds of dollars.
  • Shop online for your wedding dress. Go to a nearby bridal shop and try on dresses so you know they fit, and once you find some you like, search for them online, most will cost less.
  • Use silk flowers. Silk flowers are beautiful, look real, and are always less than real flowers. Better yet, you can even rent them.
