Saving money on your wedding could also be about spending wisely-
1- Use the money from a Champagne toast for live ceremony musicians.
2- Don't offer a choice of entree, take the upcharge and put it towards a yummy cake.
3- Give the Bridesmaids single flowers to carry then use at the centerpiece for their table, then use what you save on dance lessons.
4- Skip the $8 favors and order ballroom lighting.
