Everything that you purchased for your wedding (or any event/celebration in general), do save your receipts. Just toss all of those receipts in a shoe box and label it "Wedding" or the event/celebration you are hosting. Add all the receipts in the box as you purchase and it makes budgeting easier (by documenting the receipts in a spreadsheet if you'd like).
Leading up to my wedding, I decided to ask my venue if they offered any complimentary items I could use. Come to find out they had easels in assorted sizes available for me to use! That was a big help as I bought some to display our engagement photos throughout the venue. Immediately after confirmation that easels will be provided, I located my receipt from the box and returned the easels I purchased (brand new, never used) for my money back. That helped a lot especially since I would probably not use the easels again anytime soon.
Tip: By saving your receipts and having them all in one location makes it easier to locate and for budgeting purposes. Also I ended up returning some other items I ended up not needing/used or had extras of so that helped cut down costs.
