My wedding was economical. We kept the guest list under 100. We got married in my parents yard. I made decorations. My dress was 500. We didn't have a honeymoon. The one thing I didn't find the cheapest of options was ... the photographer. If I was getting married today - I'd save money using digital invites.
The divorce cost more than the wedding - so the best advice I give my kids is - CHOOSE wisely so you never end up divorced.
