1. Have an online RSVP option so you don’t have to buy stamps for RSVP cards. You can also forgo the card if you put the URL on the invite.
2. Skip favors. They are optional and many get left behind unless edible.
3. Marry off season or on a Friday.
4. Only book your photographer for 3 hours – enough time for formals, ceremony, and a few shots right after the ceremony. If you’re okay with foregoing professional photos of the first dance, cake cutting, etc, it is a great way to save.
