Weddings can be incredibly expensive. Many couples struggle to come up with a realistic budget, and then they also struggle with sticking to it. If you are wondering how to get started on your budget or how to create your dream wedding without breaking the bank, there are a lot of places that you can save money!
When it comes to Omaha event halls, you should check out dates that are available on Fridays and Sundays. Typically those days will be cheaper and you can save a bit there. You may also want to check on what their “off” season is, because it will also be cheaper because there will be less competition when it comes to other couples trying to book.
Save on food and snacks by only providing what you know your guests will eat. If you don’t think the appetizers will be a huge hit among your guests, don’t waste your money on them! Remember that your wedding should be a representation of you as a couple! That means that you can have or leave out whatever you want.
A great way to save on decorations is by doing a bit of DIY! Even that can sometimes be expensive, but where you can go in order to really save some money is the dollar store! Before you completely nix the idea, there are plenty of options and projects you can do with things you can find at the dollar store that will make your wedding look elegant regardless of how much you paid for them!
If you are looking to save some cash on your wedding decor, here are some awesome dollar store wedding ideas to gain inspiration from!
Fake flowers may seem tacky for your wedding, but if you repurpose them just right, they can actually be just as elegant as the real thing! While we don’t necessarily recommend skimping on your bridal bouquet and the flowers that will be in lots of pictures, places like centerpieces and petals thrown can absolutely be fake! Using fake flowers to float in water is a great way to make them look more real. Once they are in the water it is almost indistinguishable to tell whether they are fake or not! Plus, the lighting in some Omaha event halls can really help disguise the flowers!
You can find pretty cheap picture frames at the dollar store, which means you can buy a lot and repurpose them! A great way we like to repurpose cheap frames is by removing the back and writing on the glass. This creates a really simple and beautiful look. You can use these for seating charts or even a welcome sign when guests walk into your reception. If you’re not stoked about the colors of frames you find or they don’t match your colors, painting them or spray painting them is another easy way to get perfectly matching decor on a budget!
If you are into the eclectic look, a great way to plan for this is to save up empty wine or beer bottles or to find some cheap ones at the dollar store. You can then paint or spray paint them to match your wedding colors. If you like more of a rustic look, you could remove the labels and keep the original glass color as well
Wedding planning does not always need to be as stressful as it seems, although dealing with money typically always makes it that way.
