Cut Down Your Guest List!
When you are planning a wedding on a budget, the very first thing you should look at is your guest list. Keep in mind that there is more to a per-guest price than just food. Even adding one or two guests can throw off the balance of an entire room. You'll need more tables, additional centerpieces, favors, invitations, menu cards, programs, and place cards. Suddenly, what looked like a quick add just made your overall budget jump. Weddings are no longer a race to see who can fill the largest church. Couples are looking for small, intimate time with the people most important to them. Try to keep your list to people that you know well. If you think you'll look back on your wedding photographs in ten years and not know who the people are nor think you'll still be in touch with them, this budget cut should be an easy decision.
