Create a budget and stick to it. It's important to determine how much you are willing to spend on your wedding before you start planning.
Research vendors and compare prices. There are a lot of great options out there, so make sure to compare prices and read reviews before committing to a vendor.
Reuse decorations. Ask friends and family for items you can use to decorate your reception, or if you have a friend who recently got married, see if they are willing to part with any decorations.
Try to book your venue during an off-season. Many venues offer discounts during the off-season, so it pays to do your research.
Take advantage of free services. Many vendors offer free services as part of their packages, so be sure to ask around and take advantage of these services.
