From the beginning we asked ourselves if we really needed that to be part of our day. There are so many details that aren’t necessary. All of my DIY ideas got voted out. It was important that we weren’t stressed about the wedding. We didn’t send out save the date cards, just invitations. And we picked simple invitations on vista print rather than pricy invitation packages. Also, we went with small cakes and cup cakes rather than a big wedding cake.
