Every girl wants the wedding of her dreams and yet not everyone has the deep pockets they would like. This does not have to be the stumbling block that many see it as, since the wedding does not have to be limited by expectations created by movies and glamour magazines. And, while it does not have to be reduced to a meal at McDonalds, there are ways to limit the cost substantially and ensure that money will be left over for the day after.

Companies involved in this sector are not there to keep the romantic dream alive. They are there to make huge amounts of money and charge an insane amount for their services. It is not unheard of for each element, like flowers, cakes and so forth, to cost a thousand pounds and this can quickly add up to the 20,000 figure thrown around as the average price of a wedding today.
A more cost-effective approach is to use friends and family and networks established in the real world to hunt down cheaper alternatives.
