Utilize sites like pinterest.com to catalog wedding decor ideas that can put the right touches on your special day and help you achieve that customized look.  Opt out of things like a DIY dessert bar that as tasty as it sounds could eat up a lot of time to bake all the delicious treats.  Instead pre-order bulk cupcakes or a simple tiered cake and purchase a unique topper from etsy.com sellers to add before the reception.

Polkadotbride.com highlights a great tutorial on how to create your own wedding bouquet charms.  If you’re looking to save on wedding florals but don’t have the time to create your own bouquet with silk wedding flowers, check out pre-made silk or real flower bouquets.  They will still offer you savings and brides can have the option to personalize with a simpler, less time consuming DIY project like the DIY bouquet charm.
