After going through the planning process, Cari gave us some advice. Read and heed!
Figure out the priorities in your budget, then stick to them! I knew I wanted my wedding to have a modern and somewhat minimalist feel so I found a florist who would put together simple yet creative arrangements at a lower cost. With the money that we saved on flowers, we hired a top-notch photographer since we knew that the photos would be one of the only things that we would have to remember the day forever.
