Tightwad Tuesday - Guest Count / by Laurie Cohen

Happy Tightwad Tuesday!  Today's tip isn't a viable solution for every family, but it can be a game changer for your wedding budget. If you are struggling to plan dream wedding you and your partner want within budget, consider reducing the guest count.  Intimate weddings are very popular and afford a couple many opportunities to splurge.  A smaller guest count will lower the Food and Beverage bill,  but will also help cut down on centerpieces, table top decor and linen rentals.  And remember, usually only 65-80% of RSVP's will be a "Yes!" so if you budget for the number invited, you will come out under budget!
