I’ve been to many weddings in my lifetime, but planning one has definitely been an eye-opener for me.

Luckily, we had friends and family that were willing to contribute to our beautiful day, so that saved us a lot too. At the end of it all, we’re just as married as we would be if we had spent that $27,000 and we probably came out of our own pockets under $500.
