Well I'm gonna assume that you're young and just starting out, I know what this is like and it can be almost impossible to save any money. Have you considered taking out a loan for your wedding? A lot of people are doing this these days because they are just starting out and simply can't afford to pay it all upfront. Good luck on your big day.

You need to watch what you're spending your money on. If it's somenthing you don't need, don't spend your money on it.

jot down your needs and also your wants. jot down your bills and tear up the list of wants and your savings are there. My best friend fully paid for the wedding before the date. It also was the best thing ever they could have done.

I'm not one for big weddings, so I say don't go overboard on the wedding, keep it simple and small. I don't know that this will help for your wedding, but start saving money NOW. Start small. I stared out putting $5 every payday into a savings account. After a while you get used to it then you go to $10 and so on. I'm up to about $70 each payday that goes into savings. I don't miss it because it was done gradually. I use the money for vacations and fun days with friends. What about getting an additional job to help pay for the expenses? Take all that money and apply it to the wedding. I have a great home-based business that I also use for paying off home improvements. I can help you out with that too...

If you use coupons. The money that you save with the coupons you can put in a savings account. You can also put $25 away every week from your check in a savings account.
