Myths Behind Cheap Weddings
Just to correct all your thoughts about cheap weddings, here are some of the myths about cheap weddings.

Yes, of course, you still can. There are many catering services around that offer their service at a much lower price without affecting the quality of the food they serve. Also, if you think that you do not have too much money to serve tons of food options, stick with a few but make sure they all taste good. Anyway, it is not just about the quantity that can make your guests salivate but the taste and quality of the food too.
You just have to decide whether you will focus on quality or quantity.
- You can never have a beautiful wedding gown
You sure will have the chance of wearing a beautiful wedding gown even if you do not have much money in your pocket. You do not need to buy a brand new wedding gown, as there are available second hand shops that offer equally beautiful gowns, you just have to visit the right shop and check on the quality and the condition of the gown before buying it.
Also, there are many shops where you can rent beautiful, signature gowns. If this you consider, you can wear a gown, that even in your dreams you never had considered.
- Your guests will never be happy
What? Is it impossible that your guests will not be happy on your wedding. They are there to share with you the most romantic event in your life, and a glimpse of happiness in your eyes is enough to make them happy.

- You should have very limited guests at your wedding
True that you cannot invite 300 guests but that does not mean you are only allowed to invite 10 or 15. You can go for a minimal attendance but not too few like what others think. Make sure though that you are choosing the right vendors to keep your costing low without affecting the quality of your wedding.

- You have to remove wedding favors off from your list
You do not have to do that as there are a lot of DIY wedding favors you can think of. Sure, wedding favors are not a requirement for weddings, but giving it away to guests is still a good idea. You can choose to give away wedding favors you can make on your own like cookies, doughnuts, even handcrafted soap and candles. All you have to do is watch video tutorials and voila, you can do a lot by yourself.
Anyway, a wedding can make it even if there is no wedding favors to give away guests.
