Going paperless and not having the traditional way of giving invitation will definitely allow you to save money and trees, too. Since technology is already part of our daily lives, opt for a digital invitation. There are many websites that enable you to design your own invitation and optimize it to both desktop and mobile devices. For example, Wedivite, a website that gives a couple a convenient way to plan and create their invitation. Through Wedivite, couples allow their guests to suggest wedding songs, RSVP, get directions, and upload pictures to the social wedding album.

Consider Having the Reception in a Restaurant

When you rented a certain wedding venue, sometimes the lighting, decorations, and silverwares are not yet included in the price rate of the venue. This will cost you more since you also need to buy that stuff to complete the look of your wedding reception.

Instead, opt for a restaurant reception since many restaurants in the metro includes fancy decors, lights, and music to their package. This option will definitely save you a thousand bucks.

Consider Having a Breakfast Wedding

Having a breakfast buffet that contains a waffle bar, omelet station, and a pancake wedding cake is definitely delicious, isn’t it? Apart from being a sensible choice, breakfast wedding is unconventional, too, making your wedding one-of-a-kind event.
