I know it’s scary to sign on the dotted line – it’s a huge commitment and purchase!  My own personal advice to you is to NOT book a venue that you can only afford if you get a higher paying job.  You’ll just stress yourself out. 

If it’s only a matter of, “I can afford this venue but it will be tight,” then you do have lots of options: no favors, fewer flowers/DIY flowers using a place like Sam’s Club, less expensive entree selections, less expensive bar package, etc. 

Trust me when I say, it’s better to have a modest budget/modest venue and not be stressed about money.  It will consume your life if you get in over your head (as I’ve read other Bees have done).

I think you’re doing everything right, and 15 months is a long time to save up the money!  Good luck!!  🙂
