Recruit your friends...

I have been completely overwhelmed by the amount my friends and family that have wanted to help. Think about who you know and if they will be able to help you in any way…just a few examples below of how people could do this

Graphic designers/artists - wedding stationary

Fashion professionals - help you design/make/source bridesmaid dresses

Friends working in the food industry - discounted food/help catering for the evening reception

Good Bakers - Wedding cakes/sweet treats/favours 

All these things have such a positive impact on the budget and leave room for manoeuvre on other areas, and also make you realise how lucky you are to have such super amazing family and friends! Even if you are struggling for help, there’s lots of stuff you could do yourself if you wanted to! (lots of exemplary posts to follow)
