You can also choose a affordable wedding venue which suits to your budget that not cost so much and that makes your wedding in budget .

We are paying for our own, and will be saving hard for the next year to do so.... we are obviously cutting a lot of things, because we can' afford a massive wedding but at the same time we are adding a lot of small personal things to make it special! Your limit is your imagination!

We are paying our own way as well. Since we have a year and some months to plan. I have decided to focus on the things that are most important to me. So every month I put enough away and focus on that one thing. Even if it is saving up for a photographer. I have had 2 garage sales, began clipping coupons again.
The money I save from coupons I transfer over to a saving account before I leave the grocery store.
Every penny adds up

we are paying for our own and it has been hard.
I work 3 jobs and my FI works 6days a week. we decided to do destination bc it was more affordable and also counts as our honeymoon. Our registry is also a honeymoon registry that will go directly to helping us afford our stay.
When booking, I didn't care what the families thought. If they don't want to help pay for stuff then they don't get a say.

We’re paying for our own too even though my parents want to help out, but if they help out I’m afraid that the money would come between us/be used as a bargaining tool. Also, I’m of the mentality that if you and your FI can’t pay for your wedding, maybe you’re not ready to get married! Financial independence is very important to me. My parents would be happier if we were having a huge local wedding and not a small destination wedding, but they understand that in the end it’s our decision.

That's part of the reason we chose a DW...we've got a little one, too!. We are combining the wedding and honeymoon at the same resort, and found a promotion that saves us a ton of money in lodging.

We're paying for our own as well. That's why we chose DW-cheaper than an AHR and we get to have our honeymoon at the same time.
