Weddings are typically framed around rich traditions — some poignant and beautiful, some non-essential or even outdated. Picking the most essential elements of the big day can be heart wrenching, but you have to if you're planning within a tight budget. I recently asked which traditions — from the dress, cake, flowers, venue to bridal party gifts — that you ditched or DIYed. You shared some great tips and insight and proved your wedding day was still gorgeous after careful skimping.
