While most of us are used to the idea that weddings are costly, this does not have to become a fact of life. Breaking the bank for your wedding and throwing an awesome shindig is great, until you realize that you’ve spent your disposable income for the next several years. By listening to these helpful tips, you can save a bundle on your wedding.

This used to be considered crass, but in the modern world, where the husband and wife both work for a living, it is practical.

Use coupons you can find at Discountrue or other deals services for almost anything from flowers, to clothes to decoration. Make a budget and adhere to it strictly. If you’re guessing as to whether the money is there, this a sign that you need to budget more wisely.
