Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, March 11, 2015 7B Simplify and save on your wedding Planning a wedding is complicated. Once couples choose a date and location for their ceremony, they can then can get down to the nuts and bolts of the big day. When planninga wedding, many couples are governed by a budget: Budgets often get stretched, but even those brides- and grooms-to-be who spend more than they had initially hoped often find themselves not going too far over budget. One of the best ways for couples to stay within spitting distance of their budget or even come in under budget is to take steps to simplify the ceremony and reception. Simplifying a few aspects of the wedding can save couples money without forcing them to " make sacrifices that affect the look or feel of occasion. Turn floral arrangements into multipurpose accessories. Bridesmaids t₯Cy CrL beautiful floral bouquets during the wedding ceremony. But such bouquets are quickly put down and forgotten once a couple has officially tied the knot. Couples can save a few dollars by repurposing floral bouquets and other floral arrangements used during the ceremony. Once the ceremony has ended, repurpose floral bouquets as Traditional weddings are anything but simple, But there are ways for couples to make planning their wedding less complicated while saving some money at the same centerpieces for the reception tables and turn flowers used as aisle markers during the ceremony into small centerpieces on the escort card table or place them alongside the guestbook. This saves you the trouble of choosing various floral arrangements to display throughout the receltion venue and also saves you money. Scale back on the alcohol offerings. Some couples opt for a full-service, top-shelf bar at their wedding. While that's a nice gesture, it's also an expensive one. Couples can save a substantial amount of money by simplifying the • alcoholic offerings at their reception. Instead of a full top-shelf bar, offer guests one or two choices of popular liquors such as whiskey, rum and vodka and steer clear of especially expensive brands. The majority of guests likely won't even notice, but couples will notice how much money they save. Choose a classic cake.

Trim the guest list. Trimming the guest list is arguably the most effective wa; to simplify a wedding while simultaneously saving some money. Once you have compiled a list of potential invite•s, peruse that list to determine if there are any people who can be trnmed from the list. This is easier for couples paying for their own wedding, as they won't feel pressured to invite any friends or colleagues of their parents whom they don't know personally. But even couples splitting the cost of their weddings with their parents should speak with their parents about trimming the guest list to make the affair a little less expensive. ." eeeek YOU should look ee • e e J: ---as lovely : oooom"  as your drss! : "00DROP Gel Polish oAcrylics * • DEAD Pedicures, Updos • GORGEOUS Hair Cuts • Color ; 530-283-2682 • 00•000000000•00000000 • Wedding Portfolio -- Photoshop o Custom Clip-on Hair Extensions ,.
