It's supposed to be the happiest day of your life. But putting together the wedding of your dreams can be challenging, especially when you're on a limited budget.
According to a new study conducted by Design Bundles, by incorporating five money-saving D.I.Y items into your wedding planning, can save up to $1,500 on the total cost.
From invitations to favors and everything in between, couples can experience the wedding day they desire for a fraction of the budget.
Doing D.I.Y stationery/invitations instead of using an outside company proved to be the largest saving item.
It found a savings of $546 for D.I.Y. versus an average cost of $1,025 with a professional company. Online design templates cost around $12.80 with card stock for $77, four packs of envelopes, twine, a card trimmer, and a printer.
Using a metallic easel, an acrylic board, and floral garlands only cost $84.47. Whereas the cost for a designer or professional signage can run $618. Total Savings: $533.
Flowers and Centerpieces
Professionally-designed centerpieces cost about $637, and with D.I.Y options, it can be done for just $359.
The study found that for $591, couples can create an aisle runner elevated with scattered silky petals and an arrangement of pampas-adorned vases.
