But for real, maybe I should.
I’m in the beginning stages of wedding planning (like, very beginning stages) and have come to find very quickly, that it is expensive as feces to get married. Everywhere I look it’s $2,000+ just to rent a venue, $6,000+ food and beverage minimums, another couple thousand to rent tables and chairs, and that doesn’t even include the cost of a dress, tux, photographer, DJ, decorations, etc. Before you know it, you’re looking at a $15,000-$20,000 price tag for the typical, traditional wedding. Thinking about the cost of a traditional wedding compared to what you can afford can be extremely overwhelming. I’m stubborn and refuse to spend that much (well, and I can’t afford it), so I plan to take advantage of DIY decoration ideas I find on Pinterest, up-and-coming photographers, and any connections that my fiancé and I have, in order to save wherever we’re able to.
Otherwise, there’s always McDonald’s. Hope all my guests like Chicken McNuggets and sitting in the bathroom after a nutritious meal!
