Ever since our big day came and went, I've had quite a few people ask me how I planned our wedding for less than $3000. We paid for almost everything, ourselves. Part of my parents' wedding gift to us was that they paid for our venue, but we still chose to keep the location affordable. So, in honor of our anniversary I'm going to share with everyone my own, personal tips for how to have a lovely wedding on a very tight budget.
Everything about my wedding was pretty much DIY. It was a lot of work, but it was also fun and helped us cut costs tremendously. Most importantly, it made our wedding a heck of a lot more special!
