I am not getting married BUT I have been reading a few bridal magazines lately. I found out that many people tend to go overboard and go over their budgets when a wedding comes around.

Here is a wedding money mistake that people often make.

10. Doing It All Alone

Some people are afraid to ask for help. They think that is is their wedding so they should pay for everything.

While you need to be able to handle your own finaces you should not be afraid to ask for help. If family wants to donate then go ahead and graciously accept the offer of help.

Do you have a friend who has a large house that you can use for the reception? Ask your friend to let you use the place for a small fee and save on the costs of a reception hall.

Let that friend who is taking cooking classes make the cake.

Let that aspiring DJ buddy play the music.

Get all your neices and nephews to write the invitations.

Make use of the resources you have because people cannot read your mind and will not know if you need help.
