Wave goodbye to: Me, myself, and I.
Say hello to: We, us, and ours!
Yes, it's your big day, and it should be all about you, but you don't have to go at it alone. You can opt to work with other brides and share services with them to cut the costs. Talk to your wedding planner to see if she has any clients who are getting married right after or before your wedding and who will be willing to share wedding items such as decorations or chairs.
Dana LaRue, the founder of The Broke-Ass Bride blog, has a bridal sharing social media service called Bride$hare, which is what she calls "the carpool of wedding planning." Find your wedding buddy who has a similar theme, venue, or vision through this site, and then start sharing away with her!
