Bigger is not always better – managing costs

The success of a wedding day is not directly linked to its price tag.  The success of the marriage can be if you begin it with lots of wedding debt. Or if you disagree on what is an appropriate budget.  Managing costs associated with a big wedding can be a full time job in itself! For some a tiny wedding is a way to keep costs down.
