Wedding costs can add up quickly, but there are always some discounts that can be found, especially for intimate weddings!

Ever so often, venues will offer specials that give you an incentive to book your event at a given time or for a specific package.

You may have to get married on a weekday and use specific vendors, but it can save you money and a lot of time!

Elopement packages are great for a same sex union, a second marriage, or for someone that only wants their closest friends and family in attendance.
