2. DIY your Own Wedding
Most wedding couples spend a big chunk of their money on labor costs. You can save a lot of money by doing things yourself or asking for help. You can make your own invitation cards, wedding favors, and centerpieces. You can also ask a friend or relative to bake the wedding cake. If you are not a DIY enthusiast, choose simple wedding favors that won’t take up a lot of your time. Call your family and friends to help you out and you’ll be done in no time.
