120 Ways to Cut Wedding Costs Without Cutting Style

Wedding costs average around $23,000 these days, according to The Wedding Report, but if you’re like me, $23k is barely what I’d consider paying for a car, much less my wedding day. It’s not that it’s not important; it’s that there are better, more creative and cost-efficient ways to pull it off. That’s what this collection of tips is all about. The 120 ideas are culled from expert sources, real brides and personal experience. You can save money on your wedding, and it can still be one of the most beautiful, memorable and fulfilling days of your life.

Happy Planning!
