What do we mean by 2 in 1? Well, it’s basically doubling up the use of an item at your wedding reception by using it for 2 different purposes.
When planning a wedding on a budget, the bride and groom are under pressure to create a perfect memorable once-in-a-lifetime wedding with the lowest possible budget. Sensible, but can they actually do that?
The good news is; with our 2 in 1 suggestions listed below you can definitely save a lot of unnecessary expenses and reduce your budget.
Here is how you can save money, but still have every detail you want for your wedding:
2 in 1 Cake and Dessert Course: Who needs a dessert buffet when you can serve a delicious wedding cake at the end of the dinner? Skip the desert buffet; just include some seasonal fruits for your dieting guests.
2 in 1 Centerpieces and Favors: If you want to have beautiful centerpieces but still want to have wedding favors, we have the perfect solution right here. Turn your centerpieces into favors for your guests to take home at the end of the wedding, by grouping the favors and arranging them in the middle of the table with a few flowers and confetti.
2 in 1 Place Cards and Favors: Use small favors as seating cards. For example, have small boxes filled with candy and add name tags or stickers with guests’ names on them.
2 in 1 Accessories: Borrow your accessories from your close friends or family instead of buying them, which can make for your‘something borrowed’.
2 in 1 Wedding Planner and Guests: So of course your best friends and family are coming to your wedding, but how about letting them plan it? If you have a crafty friend that loves DIY, let her work on the favors, centerpieces or any other idea you have. If your cousin is an amazing baker, how abouther making you cupcakes, for example, instead of a wedding cake?
2 in 1 Wedding Gifts: Instead of receiving wedding gifts, ask your friends and family and most of your guests to contribute to your honeymoon expenses, don’t set a price though.
