We got married on a small budget and i diy most of it which saved a lot of money.
shop around for things you can always find them cheeper.
We had a village hall wedding, there was no corkage charge so I brought the booze slowly through the year when on offer.
I got any gifts I needed in the sales over the year.
I made all the bouquets, button holes and pew ends decorations. The bouquets with ribbon flowers and brooches.
I bought a lot of decorations in the card shops, Poundland, wilko, hobby craft and ebay
We made all stationary ourselves
My sister made all bunting
I made all the food myself but I would not recommend this and wished I hadn't as I was exhausted
The briedesmaid paid for there own dresses and hair.
I made my own wedding fruit cake but my mum paid for the official cake just in case.
I made the favours.
I'm not great at expecting help but you really need to, our loved ones want to be involved if the offer always take them up on it.
Save up all loyalty points, you'll be amazed how quickly the mount up.
Look at wedding packages in hotels maybe on a week day
If you have any friends or family with helpful talents as for help instead of gifts
Look at cash backsites
Keep the guest numbers small
Hope some of this helps.
