HOW TO SAVE

HERE, FI­NAN­CIAL EX­PERT JAS­MINE SHARES HER TIPS ON SLASH­ING COSTS AS A WED­DING GUEST…

● Don’t be afraid to say you can’t af­ford it. If the bride has sug­gested a week away, just be hon­est if you don’t have the cash and of­fer an al­ter­na­tive, such as cook­ing a meal for her. Of­ten, you’ll find you’re not the only one who doesn’t have the bud­get.

● Don’t splash out on clothes. Of course you want to look – and feel – great, but re­mem­ber it’s the bride’s day, not yours. If you must have some­thing dif­fer­ent to wear, why not bor­row from a friend?

● Book trains in ad­vance, use rail­cards and lift share when you can. Plan ahead as much as pos­si­ble and use apps like Train­line to scrape back the pen­nies.

● Book an Airbnb or stay in a cheaper ho­tel nearby where pos­si­ble. The bride and groom will un­der­stand.
