It’s all relative, although I would question anyone who wouldn’t want to save a little money when planning a wedding… even if it’s merely to spend the money saved elsewhere.
Everyone’s idea of what makes their day special is different…although I’m hoping that a continuing theme in everyone’s big day involves two people who kind of dig each other in a massive way!

Aleisha’s recommended Book to read to take your mind off wedding planning.
I like to read before bed. I try (TRY) and put away the iPhone and forget about trying to be beat my arch nemesis on Scramble (no kidding I have been playing a total stranger for 3 years…it. is. mental. He/She 90% of the time beats me….the rage. My god, the rage).
I’ve been reading a lot of funny stuff lately by Simon Rich. I’m jealous of how well he writes. Good jealous. Aspirational jealous. I was struggling to decide which book to recommend because I delight in them all but I thought I should go with his latest, Spoiled Brats. It’s a collection of short stories that often had me wailing with laughter.
“Simon Rich is a comedic shapeshifter, adopting the plights of hamsters and hipsters alike, and Spoiled Brats is vividly hilarious in the way Woody Allen and Donald Barthelme are vividly hilarious. Simon Rich is also much taller in real life than you’d think. Like the reverse of an actor.”

(Which are also hilarious Aleisha recommends books!).
