Budgets are tighter these days for weddings and all the things you grew up saying "when I get married I want..." have to be itemized and some things cut.
One way to help with costs are to cut 10 people off your list. By doing this you can save enough money to help with the costs of some of those items you want but can't afford.
Food and bar @ $60.00 per person = $600.00
Chair cover and sash @ $4.00 per person = $40.00
Centerpiece @ $60.00 per table = $60.00
Invitations @ $5.00 per invite = $50.00
Programs @ $2.00 per person = $20.00
Favors @ $4.00 per person = $40.00
Cake @ $5.00 per person = $50.00
Just what I have listed (and it still does not cover everything) can save you $860.00! The possibilities are endless when you take away just 10 guests (1 table).
Things to consider when you are deciding on who to cut....
When is the last time I spoke to or saw them?
Do I really need to invite all my friends?
Do all my co-workers really need to be invited?
They are just business acquaintances...
Some times you feel like you to have to invite everyone you come into contact with but you don't. It's your wedding and only people who you have constant contact with or you consider yourself to be close with need to come.
