- Wedding: December 1969
I saw this post online a few weeks ago and thought it was a good idea. Unfortunately I forgot to save the links so I’ll just post the main points.
Most people are on a budget these days and one of the way to have a great wedding is to compromise a few things. Think of what’s most important for you!
This couple has a very small wedding. They compromised on the guest count and just invited really close friends and family about 20-30 people. They had their ceremony in their parents’ backyard and the wedding reception inside the house. This way you save your money on the reception site that can go toward other things.
Flowers: Instead of getting huge flower bill just settle for the main parts. Get basic flowres done as needed like bouquets, boutineres and save your money on the other flower needs.
Photography: Get a great photographer because photos are going to be the most important thing that you can look back at.
Catering: you can have your close family members to order catering and have a buffet spread.
Spend money only where it’s important and get great photos out of it. It’s not a bad thing to have a big great party if you have the money for it. But when you don’t have money then have a small one but make sure it’s detailed enough for photos. You won’t remember or keep in contact with most people that come to your wedding so just invite the ones that you have a close relationship with.
