Are you planning your wedding? Are you trying to figure out how to have a great reception on a small budget? Here are some ideas that will help turn your wedding into a budget-friendly party: Potluck: Up until recently, many after-wedding meals were done potluck.

In addition, because most receptions happen during the dinner hour, having a catered meal at another time could save you money on more than just the food. Some catering companies may offer discounts for wedding receptions held early in the day. They may also offer discounts for booking on a particular day of the week, when they might otherwise have no...Read More »
