You can spend less on a wedding and still have a wonderful ceremony. Here are more than a few ways you can save money on a wedding.
1. Give Yourself a Budget
Start with a budget, and treat your budget as sacred. Start by setting a hard maximum amount. Tally up all the expenses as you plan the wedding. Leave a small buffer of 5% or more for unexpected expenses.
If in doubt about what should stay and what should go, give the items on your list a ranking. Prioritizing what things are most important to you can help you cut away the things that aren’t, should the need arise.
