We decided to sit down and map out where our budget is going, so we could figure out how much we had to spend on flowers, table decorations, favors and other miscellanea.
Well… that was a bad idea. It turns out that we’re ALREADY over budget. And, looking at our numbers, I don’t know how or where to cut back. I mean, I want something meaningful and wonderful, but do really really need to rent 200 chaircovers and sashes (even though they’re a steal at $550!)? Did we overspend on our photographer?
So, we’re rethinking. Do we want it at the Historic Courthouse? Do we want it in the evening? Is there anyone we can cut from our guestlist.
Sigh — this is tough business.
