Weddings are inarguable one of the most significant and exciting events in anybody’s life. But, as much as weddings are amazing, they can also be very expensive.
But, the good news is that it’s possible to have a great and memorable wedding without having to rob a bank. Here are some top tried and tested tips on how to save money on a wedding.

There are websites that help you manage RSVP’s as well as keep track of your guest list if you want to go paperless. If you’re not ready to go this route, you can make the invitation yourself (if you are able to) or perhaps ask a friend who is creative to do it for you.
