I can't believe how much they charge for venues these days!! I am actually considering switching to a Friday night instead of a Saturday just so that I can save some money. Has anyone had much luck as far as cost cutting by changing from a Saturday to a Friday? Did that cause a problem with members of the party not being able to be there or anyone volunteering to come in early and help set up not being able to do so? I'm so overwhelmed right now and my mom is not helping matters any that I just need some positive words from somewhere!
