It is very easy to get drawn into spending more on your wedding than you planned or may be able to do. Watching wedding shows on TV it seems those couples have unlimited resources which is great but not of us fall into the category. There are so many wonderful choices available to brides that you should not have to put yourself in debt to have the wedding you want. If you start out with a budget, stick to it and find alternatives that allow you to do that. Google is your friend, research using the internet for suggestions on what you want or where you might get something more affordable online. You do not want to start your new life with your partner paying off wedding bills for years to come.
