Have a Friend Bake You a Cake Instead of Buying a Gift

Found from Buzzfeed: See Source Below

In Buzzfeed’s post on 18 Ways Real People Had Their Dream Wedding for $5,000 or Less, I really liked their tip on asking a friend to make a cake instead of buying a gift. This is especially great if one of your friends is a skilled cake maker. Besides, wedding cakes are super expensive, so why not cut out a major cost and save some money?

Think Used

Now when I suggest checking out used wedding dresses, I don’t mean you have to settle for less. What I mean is, do some searching and find a dress that would normally be over $1k in the bride stores, but you found on Ebay or another site for super cheap. This may not be a freebie, but with wedding dresses, getting an $1800 dress for $350 is basically a free handout (as told by a bride in Buzzfeed’s post, 33 Insanely Smart Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding).

Again, not technically a freebie, but still a valid story to read and see how this couple cut costs on their wedding. I really liked their tip on how they saved a lot of money on the food by getting it all from different places. Like sushi platters from Costco and pasta catered from an Italian restaurant. It just shows that you can save hundreds (especially if you don’t serve alcohol.. or choose to not have a cake.. just my tip), on food if you get creative on where you get it from. No need to get a fancy catering service that costs a boat load of money.

Ok so this woman did an amazing freebie list for brides to be and I’m seriously in awe! Definitely worth the mention! I love her tip on getting a free 2 week trial for Raphodies when planning your wedding playlist and reception music.
