It isn’t really uncommon for people to want a big wedding or a small one with all the expensive refineries. However, you can still get what you want without it burying you into debt.  

  1. BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR GUEST LIST  

Invite only the people that you personally know. You don’t have to invite people you barely know because of obligations. Just make sure to have the courage to make the event significant to you and the people celebrating with you. If it means you have to whittle down your guest list then so be it.

     5. INVOLVE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS
