What's Your Best Tip For Saving Money While Wedding Planning?

Because weddings can be EXPENSIVE. Share your secrets with the rest of us!

Weddings are beautiful, romantic, precious occasions to share with our loved ones that we treasure forever.

That is, until it's your turn to get hitched and you start to research how much weddings actually cost.

If you've planned a wedding before, we've got to know: do you have any money-saving tips or things you tried to keep costs low?

Maybe you had a small reception in your own backyard to avoid the rental fees.

Or maybe you cut costs by picking local flowers or asking friends and family with gardens to help out.

Maybe you saved money by buying a dress from Etsy or — even better — by making your own.

Or maybe you skipped the glam squad and created your own ~dazzling~ look for free!

Whatever it is, we want to know your suggestions!
