Personally, I can’t see spending the amount of a down payment on a new house for a wedding. Sure, you want your special day to be something no one will ever forget. But you don’t need to spend a fortune to do so. My wedding cost a little over $1000 and I absolutely loved it! I will admit that at the time I just couldn’t afford anything more, but I’ve been a budget wedding planner for over 10 years so doing my own wedding cheap was a breeze.
These days a lot of people can’t afford to spend ten of thousands of dollars for their wedding. That’s when someone like me comes in. I’ve always done most of the process myself, sometimes with “helpers”. I make everything I can myself, from the bouquets and boutonnieres, to the centerpieces and favors, to the ceremony and reception decor. I know it sounds like a lot, but remember, you don’t always have to do it yourself. That’s what friend and family are for!
It’s surprisingly easy to the supplies you will need on your own. You can order wholesale flowers, go to craft supply stores, even get your cake at unexpected places at a fraction of the cost! This site shows you how to everything on your own. If you have any questions about I have left out, feel free to contact me!
