How to keep wedding costs down

The average cost of a wedding ranges between $26,000 to $28,000 but there are ways cut costs.
The Association of Bridal Consultants says start with keeping the guest list down. Last year the average cost per wedding guest was $204.
Consider a Friday or Sunday wedding, instead of Saturday. Some event spaces are cheaper on those days, and some caterers charge less. Also avoid June and December wedding dates as they are the most popular. Vendors may be willing to negotiate at other times of the year.
Tech savvy couples can make their own invitations, party favors and the such.
Bridal consultants say most of all focus on the day and not what's around you.
