Cake, invites, favours are three little areas you and your fiancee can look at in keeping costs down.
1. A big wedding cakecan cost upwards of $1500 so if you want to have a smaller cake and then have sheet cakes in the back, you can save a little bit of costs. Your guests won’t know that every piece did not come from the pretty cake they saw on the dance floor.
2. Invitesare a wonderful way to share the details of your wedding with your guests and invite them to the special event. But, consider more affordable printing methods to keep costs down.

3. Favorsare something that typically will be set on the table for each guest to take home. Can you cut this expense out altogether? Do you remember what the last wedding favour was that you go? I am going to guess no. Just having your friends and family there with you is favour enough. Skip the wedding favour and save anywhere from $3 to $10 per person. Or possibly take that money and donate it to a charity. Or what about in lieu of a wedding favour you let your guests know that you have decided to volunteer as a new husband and wife after your honeymoon a day of working at a local soup kitchen or habitat for humanity. And maybe your guests would want to get involved with you.
