Money-saving tips for your wedding
November 16, 2009
Don't let the expense of your wedding interfere with your enjoyment of the big day! Make sure to plan out exactly what you can afford to spend, and then stick to your budget.
If you decide that you can't live without a certain band, or that you absolutely must have more flowers, try to figure out creative ways to cut back in other places.

Don't plan your wedding in June! The height of wedding season is when wedding services are free to charge the most. The Knot suggets planning your wedding off-season.
Consider hosting your own reception. If you and your future spouse have a family home that's right for the event, having the reception in your own back yard is a great idea.
Instead of shopping around for a reasonably-priced catering company, ask your favorite restaurant if they would cater for you. It might be cheaper, and it will be food that you know you love.
