We're taking on mostly DIY projects for our wedding, and recruiting faithful friends and family members to help out. Also wholesale is waaaay better than buying retail, you buy in bulk for much less and better quality too. And, borrowing decorations, china, and silver and etc. from family members has been helping us a great deal (just make sure you remember who lent what.)

Your own precious tips could be featured on the site and help tons of other savvy brides plan their own dream weddings!
