Save money as besides the budget already set for the actual wedding expenses?? If So well, no eating out, buy only necessary needed items, clip coupons for added savings and maybe a second job. The best route really is to think about how much money have on hand already, and go only withing those means. Sure weddings can be so beautiful, but why spend or get into debt for a one day event to later have the stress of financial burden upon the brand new couple, while all who attended your wedding now can go on vacations and go about their own lives. Sit down and write down all you want to happen on your wedding day and compare to what you already have, see if you can improvise and or cut some things out. I also see you are new to myLot so a very warm welcome to you.

A warm re-welcome back. Think about all the costs and how wonderful your marriage can be and try not to go beyond all means. Good luck to you both.

If you are trying to save money for a budget wedding, it is best to cut out all of the "extras". Instead of eating out every weekend, or going to the movies, rent a movie or borrow one from a friend, or try out a new recipe. Cutting back on social activities is just a small way to help save money, and just think , you will have the rest of your life to do the extras, so a few months without it won't hurt a thing.
