15 Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding, From Real Brides Who Have Been There



We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Some of the best wedding advice usually comes from the first-hand lessons of the brides and grooms who have come before you. That’s why we’re always so eager to share any article that boasts tips and tricks from “real brides”—these ladies have already been through the stressful planning process (and made it out alive), so they’re able to look back on what worked well and what they would’ve done differently and then share that wisdom with you.

The topic we most often hear former brides spilling secrets about is money—which is not at all surprising considering every decision you make for your wedding comes with a price tag. Big Day budgets can be tricky territory for many people, and it’s usually the area that elicits the I-wish-I-would’ve-known reaction from couples post-wedding.

With that being said, you’d be wise to take note of these 15 cost-cutting tricks from real brides who have been in your shoes. You can learn a lot from their experiences and save yourself a few bucks in the process.
