Hi everyone. I am Jennifer, I am 24 and I have a 5 year old. I am currently engaged to a wonderful man. Right now we do not have a set wedding date other than its going to be in 2012. And I am looking for some helpful tips or hints about saving for the wedding, and also how to cut some costs for the wedding. I want a beach wedding, and most of my family and wedding party live out of state. We are having my sister make our wedding cake (she graduated from the culinary institute last year), my fiances mother marry us (she is an ordained minister), and one of my mother's co-workers do our pictures (she does photography for a hobby). And we might have a possible house that we can rent out for a week.
But than that's all that I have. And I am not looking for an extravegant wedding, just something simple that will last a lifetime. I also would like some input as to what the most expensive parts of a wedding are. And what would be a good amount of wedding part members (bridesmaids/groomsmen).
Any tips or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you in advance!! :-)
