It’s no secret that weddings are expensive. However, there are many ways in which you can save money. Some choose to limit the number of people they invite or budget their vendors, but another great way you can save money on your wedding is by taking some of the decorating into your own hands. In part one of this two-part series, we will provide you with a few suggestions of DIY projects that you can do yourself while also saving money on your wedding!

While there are certain decorations you can make yourself, one thing you can’t skimp on is your wedding dress. Luckily, at Serendipity Bridal & Events, we offer a wide selection of designer wedding gowns from some of the top names in the industry. We are proud to provide bridal services to residents of Washington, DC and the surrounding area, and our experts are more than happy to help you find the wedding dress of your dreams.

The great thing about centerpieces for your reception is that you only have to craft a small amount instead of one for every guest. Additionally, there are no guidelines of what your centerpieces have to look like! Many people choose to use flowers or candles as their centerpieces, however, you can create a completely unique piece that captures the love that you and your soon-to-be spouse share. For example, if you and your partner love to read, you can place a few of your favorite books on each table with a teacup filled with succulents on top. If you don’t have enough books in your collection, or you’re worried about them getting ruined throughout the night, you can always find books at your local thrift store! The great thing about centerpieces is that there are countless ideas for beautiful pieces, and most of them you will easily be able to recreate on your own.

Wedding Day Emergency Kit

On the day of your wedding, there’s no telling what could go wrong. From an oncoming headache to flyaway hairs, it’s important to prepare for every situation. Having a wedding day emergency kit will come in handy in more ways than one, and it’s a necessity for your big day. Fill it with travel-sized items like cotton swabs, pain killers, nail files, hairspray, and deodorant, as well as any other items you may need like bobby pins, pens, or even a few snacks! You never know what you may need, and while this handy kit may not save you money on your actual wedding, it could help you solve any problems that may occur right before you walk down the aisle.
