We picked a venue that had a strict head count so neither of our parents could let the guest list get out of hand. Small wedding party (two each side), I’m DIY-ing a lot of stuff too. No flowers at the reception…that alone saved us $500!!  I make jewelry as a hobby so I didn’t have to spend a lot on accessories and always always always ask people if you can borrow stuff! 🙂


Hope this helps, let me know if you need any other ideas or have questions 🙂

I’m DIYing my invites, programs, cardbox, and candy buffet. So, that’s saving me some money.

Fi designed all the invitations and inserts (and menu, etc) so we saved a TON of money there. A few DIy that saved me a lot of money. And finding vendors and wedding things for cheap.

Things we’re cutting back on to save more money for the wedding:

lavish b-day parties for the kids (they still get a party but I don’t spend as much money).

Eating out or going out: so we’re still working on this but fi is bad about it more so than me.

Not shopping frivolously.
