Packing everything you need will save you lots of money. You don't get to spend on things you actually have in your house. We suggest you create a list for all things you'll need and pack according to the content of that list. From your outfits to makeup and toiletries, do not leave anything behind. If you have to forget anything, do not forget your charger.
2. Explore your transport options before deciding
Early bird prices on flights and bus tickets will help you to save money. You shouldn't wait until the week of the wedding to book your flights. If you’ choose to drive, find other guests who are willing to share the price of the fuel and other expenses with you, or travel with people who have their own cars so you can chip in. Road trip can be fun too.
3. Save on accommodation

4. Use free apps to communicate
To save money, you need to avoid roaming your phone if you have to travel outside the country for the wedding. You can use the free calls available on apps like WhatsApp to communicate.
5. Attend just the wedding
The couple might have planned bridal shower or party, cocktail and other events around the wedding, you don't have to attend them all. Instead of attending all the events, which would make you spend more, you can just attend the wedding.
