Keep Your Wedding on Budget!

Did you know that the average cost of a wedding is now $25,000?  When I got married many years ago, I was on a tight budget.  Certainly tighter than $25,000.  That is for sure.  I ended up making a lot of things for my wedding.  I made my cake, my dress, my flower arrangements, and my decorations.  I then handed my sister a camera and made her the “official” photographer.  Yep, I’m cheap like that.

You don’t have to go to extremes like I did.  But you can certainly put together a few things on your own to make your wedding special and stay in your budget.  Then maybe you can splurge elsewhere, like on that wedding dress!  Here are a few ideas to get you thinking:
