Looking at the image above, I love how they have been less formal about their bridesmaid dresses, a great idea for a budget wedding is to get the girls to buy their own bridesmaid dress and this way it could be a dress that they will wear again and will save any worries about shapes and styles to suit different girls! A great little gift for bridesmaids is a clutch bag to match your wedding colours -- these girls are holding a yellow bag with Chevron pattern for a funky, modern look - you can find so many ideas like this on Etsy.com and I have even come across some personalised bags too! 

Another fantastic money saving tip for your wedding is gifts for your guest and wedding favours that are homemade, if you are trying to avoid the extravagance and expense of a wedding cake then why not take lead from the image above that shows cute homemade cookies in the shape of a 3-tier cake, decorated with red hearts and tied with a ribbon! These are both 'the wedding cake' and the wedding favour! 

Coolaz wedding stubby holders can also make a great non-expensive gift, we can personalise each of the coolers with an individual guest name so that place names are not required and your guests receive a personal thank you gift from you on the day!
