I'm engaged but I don't have a date set. We're trying to save money first and we're both not really in a rush...haha. I think my fiance proposed to stake his claim or something.

My family's in the wedding business, so maybe I can offer some tips for you to save some $$$

- Try to get married in the off months, during the winter. Everyone gets married in the Spring/Summer/Fall when the weather is nicer. The work for the wedding guys dries up in the winter and you might be able to get a deal. Though you're in Southern California so it may be different.

- With the venues, try to get a Thursday night if you can. Some of them offer this and while it might not be terribly convenient for your guests, you may save some $$$.

- Find a package deal if you want video and photos. Some studios do both and getting the same one to do both will save you money instead of hiring different people at different places. Plus you'll probably have people who can work together and make things run smoothly.
