Food! You can’t have a wedding without food—well you can, but why on Earth would you want to? There are many ways to save tons of money when it comes to your wedding reception, especially if you are dedicated to staying true to your budget. By now, I am sure we have all heard the ancient proverb “It takes a village to raise a child…” well, for Frank and I, in our respective tribes you could say we never really reach true adulthood in our parent’s eyes. Some days this placement within the tribal hierarchy can prove to be a charming nuisance, but on most days, it will prove to be a perfect reflection of Mother Nature’s consistent nurturing of the life she created. That said…everyone has a family! —blood or water-based, your family is family…it’s always tribal.
