I put together my first round of wedding budgets (the cheap and the opulent) and things aren't looking so good. There isn't enough money, never enough. Now we are considering overhauling the entire plan, consolidating everything into 1 day instead of 2 (which will make a lot of people happy in the long run). Will this really save us very much money? I have no idea.
Here are the wedding aspects, in order of importance to me, at the top of the list are the things I don't want to sacrifice on.
(Anyone else notice that the 3 most expensive things are the top ones on the list?)
6. Gifts for friends and family
Those top 3 are killing me. Finding a cake that I can serve for $3/slice really isn't going to save me very much. My vote is for inviting less people. My parents don't think this is going to happen.
How did you cut back on your budget?
