Ordering 300 Lovely Personalized Tote Bags
Anyone who's ever gotten married knows that almost every "inexpensive" wedding ends up being pricey. And if having a special photo booth, or the perfect band, will make your wedding the night of your dreams, then, by all means, go for it. But remember that weddings are short and marriage is long. When the wedding is a glowy, Instagrammed memory and you're scraping together a down payment for that starter house (see below), will you be glad you spent all that dough on the party favors half the guests forgot, or the table runners that matched the bridesmaid dresses? In an era when more and more couples pay for their weddings themselves, keep in mind that entering this new stage of life not in debt from the party might feel darn festive.
