Is there any way that you can cut down expenses and have a smaller less expensive wedding?

What about postponing the wedding? Or is there any possible way that you could ask for help from any of your family? Can you change your venue to a less elaborate one; maybe a park, a hall, or someones backyard? Your wedding doesn’t have to be elaborate. If you can have it at someones home, you could even have a potluck, if you have enough guests that live local. My FI’s sister and her husband had their wedding in their backyard and their food was spagetti and ceasar salad. We brought the salad. There are a lot of ways you can cut costs, if you can put your mind to it.

I agree about the small wedding with close family members. It sounds like you do want a wedding… it wouldn’t be fun to regret not having a wedding. Either way just make sure it’s about you and your future husband. Good luck with your planning (wedding or elopement)!
