One of the problems that most couples face is the growing budget. Everyone wants every detail to be perfect and sometimes the price gets lost. Here is a cost saving tip. Plan ahead and try to purchase decor items at the end of a season. For example, if you are having a winter wedding next year, go out after Christmas this year and look for items for your wedding. Even if you are not doing a Christmas wedding, you can probably find items that will fit your scheme. I was at the store yesterday and saw a cone tree shape made out of round ornaments in silver or gold. It was a beautiful arrangement that did not have to be just Christmas related and it was already on sale. This could easily be placed in your ceremony or reception decor. This budget saving idea can also work for spring, summer and fall. If you take the time early to look for and decide on some decor ideas, you will come out ahead. This will help you save money for when you need a little extra for that perfect wedding dress.
