5 Tips To Cut Wedding Costs
News from San Francisco Chronicle:

Weddings are big business. We’ve all heard that the word “wedding” in front of photographer or caterer will automatically double the price you’re quoted. But did you know that the average U.S. couple spends $ 26,542 on their big day? With the majority spending between about $ 19,000 and $ 33,000.

So how can you stop your fairytale day from turning into a financial nightmare? It’s worth remembering the financial impact of your wedding day. One of the biggest causes of divorce is debt and financial worries – so don’t start married life with financially crippling debts.

Here are some tips for holding your wedding on a budget.

Set a Budget to Begin With
This might seem an obvious point, but so many couples fail to start at the very beginning: work out what your maximum spend can be. Before you book anywhere or buy a single thing for your big day, figure out how much money is in your wedding fund. This will ensure that you don’t have a mountain of debt to come home to from your honeymoon.

If you can possibly avoid it, don’t borrow money for the wedding. continues on San Francisco Chronicle

After that, her students aren’t allowed all week to ask any more questions about Hausmann’s upcoming September wedding.

But following Hausmann’s experiences this past weekend, she may have needed more than five minutes on Monday.

Hausmann of Lee’s Summit was one of more than 300 attendees at The Examiner’s annual Bridal Expo on Saturday at The Pavilion at John Knox Village in Lee’s Summit. The day included a morning and an afternoon fashion show, as well as vendor displays for venues, food, bridal wear, photography and other wedding planning-related details.

Hausmann is still seeking ideas, though, which led her to attend the expo. Catering and tuxedos, she said, were the top details she wants to finalize next. At the expo, Hausmann said she saw a tuxedo design she loved, as well as…………… continues on Blue Springs Examiner
