We can't all have a grand spectacle of a wedding befitting our favorite celebrities. Most weddings in America cost around $30,000, but there's no reason why you can't stay under that budget with a little planning. Sit down with your partner and go over exactly what type of wedding you both want to have. This will largely determine how much will need to be spent. Keeping your day simple or "borrowing" services or locations from friends can also help cut costs. for example, does your friend own an amazing piece of property where you could have your wedding? Perhaps one of your friends owns a flower shop or a catering business. Ask around; you'd be surprised the talents that may emerge. And they can even offer their help as your wedding gift, which makes everyone happy!
