Martha is Trimming Your Budget

The maven of all things Terrific - Martha Stewart has fifty tips for trimming your wedding budget.
Check out, these were my favorites.
  • Check into wine that's available in magnums (bottles double the size of regular ones); several quality wines are. Wine sold in a magnum costs less per ounce, and because the corkage fee goes twice as far, you'll save on two counts.
  • As an alternative to traditional flower centerpieces, group favors together on the table. Even if you spend a bit more on the favors themselves, you'll probably save overall.
  • To avoid hiring two bands and paying two separate fees, ask if just a few pieces of the band can play during the ceremony and cocktail hour as well as at the reception.
