Wonderful! Definitely saves you money in some LARGE and NEEDED areas!

We have many DJs in our family so we definitely have that covered!And I was lucky enough to have a friend help with my Save the Date Drawing!

I dont know if you read about “Fren’dors” but some people love them and some people are hesitant about it! I see both sides of the spectrum!

Congrats and Best of Luck!!! YAY for wonderful talented friends!

We are using friendors.

My mom is an art photographer so she is doing the photos, she had the style that I wanted anyway.

A guy my FH works with is an amazing DJ and is doing our wedding for $200.  I have seen him several times and he is just what I was hoping for.

A friend is a wedding coordinator, she is DOC for the wedding for free.  I did try to talk her into charging something, but with all my DIY and outside vendors she is using this as an opportunity for her portfolio.

A friend of my dad’s owns a transportation company and is giving us a huge discount to transport our guests.  It CWS time in Omaha, and we don’t want anyone drinking and driving.

My Aunt and Uncle are supplying bottled water for us.  They own a glacial water company in Alaska and are bringing their new product for us.  The bottles will double as decorations for the bar as they light up (OMG can’t wait to get the pics of these so I can put them on WB).

I have worked on and off in the liquor business for years so we have been gifted a ton of liquor and am getting the rest at a huge discount.
