We both want something small but we're disagreeing on certain splurges. My #1 thing is photography but he can't believe it will cost up to 5k for a good photography package. He doesn't care about flowers/chairs/chuppas/sashes etc. he just wants his parents and sister there on the beach
He keeps saying "we don't need that, we don't need that etc"
There are lots of thrifty ways to do things.... would it help if you price some DYI projects out and then you can show him a comparison....
Make a list (if you haven't noticed.. I'm a list person haha) of everything you would LIKE to have.... then move things from that list to a list of things you MUST have.
I am sure there are things on your like list that you can live with out.. and there are ways to make things on your must list doable!!
