Hi everyone me and my HTB have been having financial problems since moving...

Hi everyone me and my HTB have been having financial problems since moving in together but now we are slowly getting settled we’ve moved our wedding back a year and trying to figure out how to save money we’re we can. One area I’m thinking of saving is the flowers, do my braidmaids need to hav flowers or can I do an cheaper alternative. I need help with this cos I’m in a very stressed situation at the moment with all the wedding and how much it cost

None of mine are having flowers ,and I'm trying to do as much as I can online as its cheaper a lot not all of the time but most also try and get a good package deal that do a lot of it so less for you to stress about , at the end of the day do what you and your H2b want you don't need to do all of the big stuff a lot of the time its to please others anyway . Maybe go bbq Orr buffet ,save money on a cake buy a base cake and Decorate it yourself that what I'm doing gonna cost me under 100 quid for two tears ,try not to stress out and congratulations to you both x

Don’t have a mua I didn’t miss it at all or hair my sil is a hairdresser so I had an advantage but depends on what you want. I went to Gretna green and had a package for 10 paid for 3 extra it was perfect close freinds/family but again depends on who/how many you want there x

Why not have a flower on a wrist corsage ? Buy table decorations second hand how about second hand dress for you and bridesmaid groom etc too . You can get beautiful dresses in charity shops too or local sites selling

A single rose is classic and much cheaper than a bouquet each xx

Bridesmaids don't need to carry flowers but if you want them to have something a wrist corsage is much cheaper or just a single flower can look elegant. Check out Ebay etc they have some really cheap used bouquets.

What about a little wand for your bridesmaids depending on how old they are, you can get them with hearts or stars on the top x
