7. Get Creative With Your Wedding Cake
There’s a lot one needs to bear in mind when planning a wedding on a budget. And when it comes to the wedding cake, we suggest you opt for some yummy and delicious cupcakes instead of a big, personalized wedding cake. Since there are a lot of guests, a wedding cake has to be big enough to serve them all, which can cost a lot. But at the end of the day, it’s about the taste and not the look. So, choosing cupcakes or macaroons instead of wedding cake can help you cut down the wedding cake cost for your beach wedding.
