Hello fellow brides! My fiance and I are not grand people and I didn't think we'd have any problem working with our 5k budget but it's honestly harder than I expected. I can't believe all the extras that we've elected to skip and we're still struggling to stay under. I just want an intimate, family affair to celebrate marrying the love of my life... Why does everything have to be so expensive? Any advice or stories on ways you're keeping your small budget intact?
