Then you lay your eyes on the reception that you just have to have. But then reality steps in and it's called "your budget", because candy costs!

What is a bride to do when the budget monster rears its ugly head? Get a reality check!

Reality Check #1 You cannot, let me repeat not have a guest list of 250, plated steak & lobster dinner, cocktail hour and a 4 string quartet for $10,0000 or less. Anyone leads you to believe otherwise  is flat out lying.

Reality Check #2
Good news, you can have the wedding you've always dreamed of for $10,000 or less if you budget wisely and of course get real with yourself.

Reality Check #3
Being flat broke is not hot! Remember, when the wedding is over you still have to live. So don't spend what you don't have!
