Oh, this is a really great story and very nice write up by a blogger over at Bridal Guide, Caitlin Rebecca Ryan. Planning a wedding is one thing, paying for it all is another altogether. Everyone has their own budget (hopefully you’ve gotten that far), but while we all have the ideal of what we’re looking for the reality comes down that we all must make choices and a little tightening of the belt is “useful”.
Have a look see and read on to help you with your choices:
When my husband Michael and I first got engaged, we were overly confident that we could put together our wedding for way less than other couples we know had spent. However, when we started getting quotes from vendors and banquet halls, reality hit us; hard. Knocked off our high horse, we were forced to consider the following:
A) What was truly important to us (and what we would remember after the day had passed).
B) What our guests would notice and appreciate.
C) How much money we realistically could (and wanted) to spend.
