Wedding Costs

Posted by pom on Oct 07, 2011

Because Mr.Pom and I are very concious of the amount of money that can be spent on a wedding we are trying to keep all of our costs to a minimum.  We are the kind of people who do not want to spend our life savings on one day and then have nothing to live off of.  We are also not the type of people who are willing to have their parents spend ten’s of thousands of dollars on one day either.  So we find ourselves in a very lucky situation with the friends and family that we have.  I say this because here are the things we are cutting out of our spending budget.

Photography-my mother and brother are excelent photographers and honestly I’ve been to weddings where people have spent thousands of dollars on photography and somehow my pictures turn out very similar and just as good as the professional.  I’m not at all tooting my own horn, but rather saying that you don’t get what you pay for.  We are also going to put together a way for people to take their own photos in a feauxto booth :)

Cake-my mom is also an excellent baker so as of right now she has decided that she would like to bake a cake for everyone to enjoy!

DJ – Mr. Pom’s brother in law and cousin have been and are DJ’s so between one of them mixing our tunes and the other brining some fantastic sound system with him we are good to go!

Where are you cutting back on the costs?
