Ok, so i'm new to this whole board's thing but really need help so here it goes.
When we started planning our wedding we had our budget planned out but then were told that it's your first wedding and in your twenty's and should invite almost everyone you know or knew. Great in theory except that my fiancé and I are paying for our wedding on our own neither family is help financially and were both still in school and working full time. Our small intimate wedding of a near 200 has grown to a 500 person guest list and seems to grow each day.
There's no one we can really cut out at this point but I need inexpensive ideas or DIY. I'm not the most crafty person but to save money i'm willing. I also don't want it to look cheap. We really need to find way's to get back closer to our budget. Are there any ideas from save the dates to center pieces or even invitations that anyone has?? Even great vendors in the area would be amazing! Anything else is GREATLY appreciated as well!! PLEASE!?!?!
