I think it’s actually made me appreciate what we are doing more, and WHY we are. 

As we’re paying for the wedding ourselves, each decision is carefully considered. Right now we actually have to cut our guest list.  We both have large families so this is tough, but we can’t afford to have over 200 people at our wedding.

And then there is the part of the family that I REALLY want there, but they’re not sure if they can because neither of them have stable jobs and they live 2500 miles away 🙁

I’m already married, but I’m in the wedding industry and have noticed that a lot of brides are getting married during the “off season” this year, or on alternate days of the week (Fridays, Sundays) to save money. I think it’s really smart and a great way to save.
