It's really not THAT hard to save money on a wedding. There are certain costs that are hard to cut down on (food, alcohol), but there are SO many ways to save: - cut out favors completely (saving a couple hundred bucks) - beer and wine instead of full open bar - let people toast with whatever they are drinking instead of buying champange - use more candles as centerpieces - much cheaper than flowers - borrow where you can - jewelry, veil - smaller wedding party = less gifts to buy your wedding party
