Kelly Harding from Hair International advises, “Bigger in not always better; if the most important thing to both of you is to just have your family and closest friends together, don’t feel obligated to have an elaborate event.”
Saturday is the most popular day and therefore the most expensive. Most venues have reduced prices on Sundays and weekdays. If you can, “Have your reception take place between lunch and dinner times, and serve heavy hors d'oeuvres instead,” suggests Jean Kautt, sales manager at the Monroe Convention Convention.
“Spend most of your budget on the venue, food, alcohol and music. Do not spend on unnecessary props like signs, getting robes for your bridesmaids, or liquor before the reception,”cautions Sharon Armstrong from the Loft At Walnut Hill.

Amy Defatte from Travel Leaders shares, “Write down the ‘musts,’ those things that you will not give up. That way when changes need to be made, you know what can go and what can't.” “There are great DIY options for decor, invitations, party favors and gifts for the wedding party,” comments Celeste Wolfinger of WonderLab. Some projects are tougher and more time consuming than others. So, avoid DIY overload and choose wisely.
