If you’re looking to have your wedding on a budget, these free samples for weddings can help you too the same way that they did me. They’re not going to help you save thousands on your wedding, but they will help you save a little.
My motto is that any savings is a good saving and that is never truer than when you’re trying to plan a wedding on a budget. Your wedding should be the first thing that you and your fiance look to save money on, but it shouldn’t be the only thing.
Too many couples go into debt for their wedding then spend years trying to pay it off. Don’t be that couple and don’t be the planning a wedding on a budget be the last thing that you discuss financially. Your finances as a couple should start before you get married and since money is one of the leading causes of divorce in this country, should be a priority for you both as newlyweds and during the first 2 years of your marriage. Saving money on your wedding doesn’t have to be one of those situations where you are constantly banging your head against the wall trying to figure out how to do “more” to save.
There are a lot of ways that you can save money on your wedding. Aside from using wedding freebies to save, there are plenty of ways that you can save money on your wedding dress, save money on wedding decor, save money on wedding flowers and even ways to save money on wedding photos. I know that it can seem hard to do, but if you really get creative and you buckle down to become determined to have a wedding on a budget, you can absolutely do it.
Another way to plan your wedding on a budget is to earn all of the extra money and free gift cards that you can. I personally earn $100 extra every single month
using a system that I worked out. If you did things the way that I do, you could very likely “pay” for a lot of your wedding items with a gift card.
One last thing before we jump into these free wedding samples. The free wedding samples below are free at the time of posting. I can not guarantee that they will stay that way. I do try to keep this post updated, but sometimes one slips through the cracks or I just overlook it. If that happens, would you be so kind as to leave me a comment or email me and let me know so that I can remove it from the list?
Also, please do not commit fraud to get these gifts. If you are not truly getting married, since a lot of these involve sending forms through the mail, you could be charged with mail fraud from the company. I’d hate to see that happen to any of you.
Finally, do you know someone who’s having a baby? If so, don’t miss out on TONS of baby freebies HERE!
They are fantastic in gift baskets as shower gifts!
