Another thing that helps you to save some money without losing the quality of the wedding is by having it in off season. Plan your wedding during the off-season to avoid the peak period prices.

Wedding dress and other dresses are also an important item for any wedding. There are several ways to save from the wedding dress.

Off the rack dresses are another option to try.Most bridal shops have a off the rack section where you can find never worn bridal gowns for an affordable rate.
Some shops give discounts when you buy items for a certain amount. To get these types of discounts, you can buy all your wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses and other dresses such as mother of the bride dress from the same shop. It is a great way to save some money.
Another great option to save from the wedding gown is that you can rent your wedding gown. With this option, you have a great opportunity to wear a beautiful bridal dress for an affordable rental rate. I think wearing a good quality wedding gown is better than wearing a cheap wedding dress for the same rate. Visit your local bridal shop and check their charges for rental wedding gowns. Then you will be able to decide by comparing the expenses for buying a gown and savings that you can have.
#4: Limit your guests list
