    Congratulations on booking your venue! We got the bigger things booked up first such as registrar, DJ, harpist, photographer.. these were the things we thought were likely to book up quickly and that was 2 years in advance! We're not having transport but would have also done transport at that stage too.

    With regards to invitations we are making our own and I am able to use ink and paper at work, so they will work out very cheap as we only needed to buy little bits and bobs for them. I got 2 of my bridesmaid dresses from L1ttl3 M1str3ss and the other 2 from a China seller on the bay called lovestoryuk - they were only £35 and brilliant quality, very happy with them!

    Congratulations on booking your venue!

    After venue we sorted our officiate, photographer and caterer (in that order)

    My advice is do your research and haggle with suppliers. It may seem rude but a lot will mark up their prices as soon as they hear the word "wedding" so feel free to negotiate. My OH and I saved a lot and even managed to afford to get photobooth for our wedding which we initially thought we could not afford.

    I made my own invites but make sure to do your research for this as I ended up spending more money than I had planned to. Vi$ta Pr1nt is a very good company to use for invites budget-wise. I personally purchased my bridesmaids dresses from JJ$ [email protected]$e which worked out well however I had to get standard sizes which means they they have to be altered so not a huge saving so maybe look at places like [email protected] and other high street retailers.

    if you're wanting to do things on a budget try looking at high street retailers or online printing shops you'd be surprised how much money you can save by looking around first xxx
