Keeping costs down wherever possible when you’re throwing a wedding is a top priority for all brides and grooms, whether they’re planning Cyprus beach weddings or having a homegrown affair.
Wedding stationery and accoutrements can be hugely costly, especially if you’re going to be inviting lots of friends and family – but now there’s a way to keep everything to a minimum, thanks to Poundland!
According to Metro, the budget shop will be rolling out its own wedding range on June 12th with all sorts of extras (including planners, bunting, shabby chic signs and bouquets) selling for £1 each.
You’re sure to find something you like in the collection and could save yourself a pretty penny indeed, leaving you lots of money left over to spend on your wedding breakfast and champagne for the guests instead.
Trading director of the company Barry Williams was quoted by the news source as saying: “Wedding days can end up costing an absolute fortune and because we’re a nation of savvy shoppers who love a bargain, it’s no surprise that more people are looking to save money on their big day.”
So how else can you keep costs down and still have the wedding of your dreams? Engaging in a bit of DIY could be a good idea and you could even involve friends and family to help you get it all done.
What about making your own wedding favours like biscuits or little jars of jam? Or you could go foraging in local forests and woodlands to make your own bouquets and buttonholes. The only limit is your imagination!
