Luckily, there are many ways to save in some areas that will allow you to splurge in others, like foregoing the decked out gazebo and adding more days to your honeymoon package.


YOU DON'T NEED TO GO CRAZY ON FLORALS

Chances are you picked your wedding destination because of its gorgeous backdrop,, so forgo the expensive over-the-top florals and instead let the beauty of nature take center stage, If you absolutely need centerpieces on the tables, you can save by re-purposing your bridesmaid bouquets for double duty. Not to mention the floral swag on your gazebo can add extra impact on the sweetheart table. You can also add more greenery to arrangements or add gorgeous green garlands for a cost effective eco-chic effect.


GO EASY ON THE WEDDING DRESS

It is likely that the wedding dress with the layers of ruffles and the mile long train is going to feel like an anchor when it comes to the heat of the sun in a tropical destination. It would also be wise to avoid heavy fabrics and the more expensive textures like silk shantung that can cling and make you feel like a sweaty mess. Instead, look for breathable and light materials, which will also help when it comes to packing and air travel. If you are looking to splurge on a designer gown, consider a bridal consignment shop or check online shops or auction sites. Since most bridal gowns are normally only worn once, you can usually find them for a fraction of the price online.

Many resorts also offer a complimentary package for staying so many nights or bringing in so many rooms, By allowing the resort to handle the wedding planning portion, you can not only save money, but have less stress as well.
