- You can still have the wedding you want, but the first thing to consider is to put the date off a little longer than you would like and save for it! Don't go into debt just to have it right away and then start your married life together overwhelmed financially and possibly end up divorced.
- Don't just plan to use an ipod and do it yourself. That could end up destroying your happy day. Without a professional emcee there to direct events, get the party going, and make special announcements, your wedding could be over in an hour.
- The best way to cut $100 off your entertainment budget might be to book your entertainment for 3 hours instead of 4. Or have your wedding on a week day instead of the weekend. That one decision alone can save you on most every service you will need.
- If you simply can't wait and want to get married now, then plan a simpler chapel wedding and hold a big party a year down the road and relive your special day with everyone present!
