4. Save on Catering!

Caterer: The Little Food Co

Wedding food, drinks, and your wedding cake are the next big expense. Instead of cutting down on the quality of food, you could reduce the amount of food and alcohol you serve. Most food ends up getting trashed, so plan for your food based on your number of guests and their RSVPs. When it comes to your Indian wedding catering in Los Angeles and your wedding cake, avoid a 10-tier cake. Instead, go in for a two- or three-tier; it should be sufficient and look elegant enough.
