Woah wedding season is on the peak and probably one of your bestie is getting married, and if you are a maid of honor than May God be with you! All the hotchpotch and craziness of arrangements plus tolerating the bridezilla mode of your friend and top of all this whole bridesmaid thingy makes you broke as hell. Saving you some of the money related pain, here are the tips for throwing a bridal shower while staying in your budget.
Most efficient way of cost cutting is choosing a frugal venue and what’s better than your own house? Bring the party at home, transform your living room in a party lodge and dance the night away with your own music and booze.
Fancy bars, ball rooms, community halls, and strip clubs or other possible renting venues have time limitations, plus not all are light on pocket.
Make the theme star of the party:
Pick a theme and stick to it. The only requirements; should be fun and suits the bride’s personality. Centre your plans on the theme such as Mad Man, picnic, any favorite movie character, Marilyn Monroe or even Avatar, do whatever the bride wants. Make amusing games and activities. The guests will be dressed in their own costumes, and even the hassle of fancy expensive cake, menu and decoration will be blown out as everything would be theme-based.
DIY decoration Ideas:
Art and craft is not just for the 2 graders any more. Wear your thinking hat and start working on DIY decoration items, such as popsicle’s stick table runner, confetti dipped balloons, painted old mason jar vases and very own mimosa bar for fancy cocktails. Look for the coupons and promotions before buying supplies.
Without being formal you can easily go for the email invites or if you want to add more creativity it’s better to make DIY invites keeping the theme of the party in mind.
Plan a week-end out of town:
Fuel up a SUV and head out of town for a weekend adventure with the bride and girls, if you aren’t interested in spending money on food, decoration and other bridal shower party essential then this is the best idea. All you need is fuel money, cooler filled with drinks and all-you-can-eat-road-side food. This is the fun idea for adventures brides. More on saving, you better check the online coupons for entertainment.
