Envision Your Wedding Day
Start with the basics -- what kind of wedding do you want? If your ideal wedding day is 20 people at a small winery in California, your budget will obviously be different than if you were getting married with 400 guests at The Plaza Hotel. Consider the overall feel of your day and don't limit yourself to a ceremony and reception on Saturday night. If you're going to be working with a tight budget, think about the other options available: a Sunday brunch wedding, a Friday-night desserts-only reception or even a small destination wedding.
