Congratulations on your engagement!!! And welcome to Weddingbee.

There are TONS of ways to cut back, and you’ll find GREAT ideas on WB.

To start with, are you heartset on a Saturday wedding? At our venue, it was $3,000 less to do it on a Friday or Sunday! Just a thought for starters. 🙂

Good luck!

@Timiyajac082004: there are a TON of ways of saving money.

You can make a lot of things yourselves (invitations, favors, food…etc)

It just really takes a discussion between you and your Fiance (and your parents if they are helping) about what your budget is. That will really determine what you’re able to spend, and then you can go from there.

If you don’t have a huge budget, decide what is most important to you..photography, the venue, food, a full bar…

Good luck! there are a TON of posts about budget brides making it work.

Congrats and welcome! There are some really smart ladies on here who have a lot of good tips! I’m from Youngstown and a student too, so I totally understand your situation!
