6. Do you really need to spend over $100 an hour for a limo to drive you around for 10 - 20 minutes? If this is one of those important things, then by all means go for it. But if not, your bridal party can find their own way to the reception site, and I am sure you can find someone to chauffer you to where you need to be.

7. Keep in mind, the larger your guest list, the more money you will have to spend. Cut the guest list to include only those you truly desire to be apart of your special day.

8. If you plan on serving alcohol at your reception, don't feel obligated to supply a full service bar. Keep it limited to beer and wine. Your guests won't notice what you don't have. As for the champagne toast, I'm sure no one will mind a nice white wine. You'd be surprised what this can save you when your in a budget crunch.
