A few of the wedding industry’s best, including our very own Amy, share the biggest save-the-date mistakes couples often make.

Amy says: “Be sure that you have a really great handle on your budget before sending your save-the-dates. By understanding what you can spend as well as how many guests you can accommodate, you will avoid a potential budget issue if you need to cut corners. You don’t want to send an over-the-top save-the-date and set one expectation for the type of wedding you’re having, only to follow up with less than impressive invites.”

One realization when you’re planning a wedding: You’re spending a ton of money on one day. It’s natural to want to buy everything. That makes it an investment, right? Not entirely.

The number-one question to ask yourself: Will I really use this item later?

To help you figure out when to throw down your credit card and when to sign a contract, Brides asked top wedding experts, including Amy of course, when you should buy and when you should rent!
