An article on CNN recently described a couple’s way of cutting costs for their wedding.

The couple owns their own production company and traded help with marketing for lower costs with wedding venues. A great way to cut back.

However, it annoyed me a bit as well because that’s not a practical solution for everyone. My husband and I, for example, had nothing to trade since we’re both in graduate school!

I’m wondering what other skills people have traded for lower wedding costs.
