Some neat tips and tricks to help you save time and dollars on your big day! There are so many creative ideas out there, but here are a few!
- Veil Weights
Getting married outside? Weights will keep your veil from blowing away. They can even add a bit of sparkle and style to your veil. You can find ways to make your own with magnets and rhinestones.

- High heel protector cap
Having to walk across grass in stiletto heels is not fun. Use a heel cap to keep from sinking. If you want to forgo the heel cap altogether, wear thick heels or wedges.

- Wedding program fan

- Have an off-season wedding
Everyone knows spring is wedding season. If you’re looking to book a popular location, you’re better off having an off-season wedding. All your vendors will be less busy during off-seasons.
- Re-use wedding decor.
Most people throw out their wedding decor after their wedding is over because there really isn’t much use for it afterwards. You can salvage a lot of neat finds that way. Also, if your venue has multiple weddings in a day you can ask to use the previous wedding’s flowers, decorations, etc.

- Number your RSVP cards
The best way to stay organized with guests is to keep your own records. Number your guest list. If you receive an RSVP with unclear writing, you can figure out who the guest is based on the number you wrote down on the RSVP!
- Create a hashtag
Wedding hashtags are the new thing. Have your guests use your tag when they post photos so you can search the hashtag afterwards and find your photos. That way, guests can find more photos from your wedding too.
- DIY your own photobooth backdrop
Photo booths are not cheap, but you can still have a fun photo op without them. Make your own backdrop with your wedding colors, banners, etc. Have props to add even more fun.

- Rent a house
Want a wedding thats different from everyone else’s? Find a house or mansion on Airbnb.That way, your out-of-town guests can stay the night without having to check into a hotel.
Book your wedding through Airbnb
- Go for a local food truck
Food catering doesn’t allow guests to order their own food. Having a food truck supports a small, local business and allows guests more options. Even having a food/dessert truck come after dinner and dancing is a good idea.
