    Silk flowers will be cheaper than real flowers

    Sparkling wine rather than champagne

    Serve cake as dessert

    Would you be having a civil or religious ceremony? You could get married at 3, drinks reception till 5.30, then line up, speeches, and serve food at 6.30? x

    Religious ceremonies can be up to 45 minutes, and then if you have to travel to the venue, remember to count that in to the timings xxx
