With wedding photography climbing into the thousands of dollars, so if it’s not something that you are overly picky you can save plenty here.

6. Wedding Invitations
Whether you want a modern design or need some calligraphy done on the envelopes, there are designers on Airtasker who can help you out without the hefty price tag.

8. Wedding Cake
There are lots of baking tasks on Airtasker, so it’s not surprising that we’ve even had a wedding cake made by one of our baking superstars. It can be at least half the price of more traditional bakeries for your typical 3-tiered cake.
