Throughout this wedding planning experiance FH and I knew that we weren't going to put ourselves in the whole for a single day of our lives. We've cut corners on some things, splurged on others and searched for bargins on most. We're coming closer to the end and I truly believe I'm going to love every aspect of our day.
Each couple is different. Each day is different and should be! What's important to you may not be as important to me. For instance FH and I didn't want to spend a fourtune on dinnerware and tableclothes. It's an aspect not many of our wedding guests will be judging or looking closely at during the day. I never remeber either from weddings I've attended! So we chose to buy all disposable dinnerware. Heavy duty classic white paper dinner and dessert plates, clear plastic 9oz cups, paper dinner napkins and "silver" plastic silverware. We also have 20 round tables. Instead if paying $5 a piece for a table cloth (not including shipping) or renting some locally for $11+ a piece we bought several white rectangle tableclothes at our local thrift shop, cut them into squares and will use them for our round tables. I spent over $1000 on my dress, $2,500 on oir photographer and $120 for my hair and makeup. Some of the items I knew I wanted the better quality of. All of the flowers, centerpieces and decor is DIY.
What things ir aspects are important to you on your wedding day? Would you be thrifty? Would you choose debit over compromise?
