I guess we could all take a few tips from Ashley Hicks in North Carolina who got married just over a month ago. Her and her husband (who works in finance) knew that they didn't want to go into debt for a one-day party. In average, weddings are around $34,000 in North Carolina (a few thousand dollars more than the average Wisconsin wedding).
Ashley said, "Nah, man." She quickly turned to Natalie Duncan, a wedding planner, who suggested buying a few things from Amazon. Her dress, table settings, groomsmen gifts and more! She paid close attention to the reviews to make sure the purchase was right.
