E! Online covered actor Dominic West’s (The Wire) wedding last weekend to college sweetheart, Catherine Fitzgerald, at her family’s castle in Limerick, Ireland.  They spared no expense for the ceremony, including the bride riding in on a horse drawn carriage.  The pair have three kids together, and immediately following the ceremony, whisked their two youngest up to have them christened while the audience was still seated.  Some of the guests included West’s Wire co-stars Sonja Sohn and Wendall Pierce.

Can the perfect wedding be attained without losing your bank account?

Cupid’s Advice:

Everyone dreams of having an elaborate wedding, but the logistics aren’t always attainable.  Check out Cupid’s suggestions on how you can have your perfect wedding without losing your savings:

1. Set up a savings account: As soon as you agree to a marriage proposal, it’s a great idea to set up an account that you make weekly deposits into to help minimize the dent to your wallets as the wedding date moves closer.

2. Determine your budget: Once you’ve accumulated a decent savings, begin planning your nuptials.  Start with the most expensive such as the bride’s dress, or the cake of your dreams, then work your way  down to the rings.

3. Keep up your plan of action: Maintain a list of everything you want to include, and as you accumulate the funds, take care of it and cross it off the list.
