When I got married, we also considered our budget first before we decided on the number of guests we are going to have. We also wanted to invite a lot of our friends but we dont have enough money. We also wanted to have a simple wedding cause anyway, family is more important and the ceremony is more important and it has nothing to do with food. I think you can still invite all of your friends but you'll just have to prepare food that's also simple.

I'm not yet married but most friends or colleagues that I know who got married attended bridal fairs and it helped them a lot as they were able to choose which one fits their budgets. Also, you may also want to check out some forums for weddings. I believe there are a lot who are willing to share about their wedding budget. From there, you can get an idea on how much money you need depending on the type of wedding you envision.

Hi, I think getting married doesn't entail that much of money if you really wish to bind with your partner. You can have it simple and memorable and i think the best thing that you may want to consider about getting married is that if both of you agred to take and be ready of the responsibilities of a married couple. ;-)

hi there, i'm not a financial consultant here, but i just wanna say something..getting married entails a preparation..but it is also not a good idea if you are going to worry because of financial constrains, just get marry even without enough resources. What is vital is the love and the vow you are going to make. your friends will understand you...
