5 ways to save: wedding costs

Tightwad's Frugal Bride e-book is full of thousands of cost cutting ideas to help you get the wedding of your dreams and still have enough money left over for a rockin' honeymoon. Here are some tips to get started:
Decoration Consider a venue that is already decorated, such as a church or community hall, to help cut down on your expenses. You may contact a couple who are getting married at the same venue on the same day to see if they would be willing to share some of the decoration costs.
The dress Don't overlook high-end bridesmaid's dresses in your search for the perfect gown; you may be surprise how gorgeous they are and save a bundle in the process!
Rings Perhaps your favourite gem is a ruby or emerald? Opt for other precious stones besides diamonds; they may be meaningful to you in some way (perhaps represent the month that you met, got engaged or plan to get married) and are a less expensive option.
Stationery Rather than including a reply card in your invitation, ask guests to RSVP online or by phone.
Flowers Carry one big statement flower such as a calla lily or a sunflower to maximize impact and minimize cost.
