According to my totally unscientific poll, 52% of respondents will spend between $21 - 30,000.00 on their wedding.
In my experience the weddings that are published and that inspire are generally significantly more. When you consider the cost of special venues, rentals, open bar, and top vendors, it can seem difficult to make it all fit and have all the personalized touches that todays bride wants.
But those looks can be achieved if the bride can make a lot of the small custom-made details instead of purchasing them.
Another option is to take one or two impactful elements and implement those.
And of course, many couples are cutting their guest lists to have all the things they want at a price that is comfortable in these tough times.
