|What detail is most important|
To keep your budget in check, decide what detail is most important for you and your fiancé.
If you are foodies, spend your largest chunk of cash on the best caterer or renting a room in the hottest restaurant. Have you dreamed of your wedding dress for your entire life? Well, get shopping! If oodles of flowers are more your style, then food and clothing can get a thrifty touch. Bottom line: resist giving equal footing to all details on your list.
