Money is usually the biggest factor that prevents engaged couples from having a large wedding that accommodates all of their loved ones, but you can still have a beautiful, low-cost wedding by hosting it at home. Your home is a special place because it’s unique and meaningful to you and your family. It’s a one-of-a-kind location that other weddings will never share. Hosting your wedding at home means you’ll save money on the location, and you’ll have complete control over the space.
