4 Details Wedding Guests Won't Notice |

As a bride, it's so easy to get caught up into making every detail perfect, but in reality, no matter how much money you throw down there are some things that aren't worth splurging on because no one will remember or even notice. 

Think about the most recent wedding you went to….go it? Now, what do you remember from that wedding? Ours was the music and booze…but you also remember if the food was typical hotel wedding food or not, so we added that to the list too! Here are the 4 details that your guests won't notice. 

#1. Favors. Brides go so out of their way to make them perfect, but in reality unless you can eat them, no one really cares. We had local honey in mason jars at our wedding, which I thought was a great idea and got compliments on it but in reality it wasn't worth the headache and sticky mess of getting the honey into the jars. 

#2. Fancy Table Linens. We have the pressure of making our wedding look Pinterest perfect but a good place to save is table linens. The tables are covered with centerpieces, plates, silverware, and glassware, so instead of getting all fancy with table linens (which adds up on each table) try making the centerpiece stand out more. 

#3. Out of season flowers. Do you like setting your money on fire? I had my heart set on peonies but a wedding in November just wasn't going to cut it. Talk to your florist about the best options for substitutes. 

#4. Nice china. I'm a sucker for gold rimmed china just like the next girl, but unless you've already budgeted for it - it's not really necessary with dimmed lighting and already plated meals. 

What other details did you save on for your wedding?
