Happy Bride: How I Dumped the Wedding Industry
Sarah Schacht

Congratulations on your wedding!

As I’m currently planning my own wedding on a budget, I read your piece like a document of a comrade’s struggle, fighting against the marketing and hype of an industry that, with exceptions, thrives on inflated margins, fear and an imbalance in knowledge.

For me, the bottom line is this: you CAN have an awesome, lavish, unforgettable wedding WITHOUT breaking the bank. It might take more work, but the app economy and the internet seriously mitigate the amount of legwork and hassle, making it totally feasible for you to be your own wedding planner.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
