Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries finally got hitched this weekend … and the Humphries family had quite a mixed reaction according to According to one guest, “Everybody felt awkward, like it was all for the cameras and more like a TV show than a wedding.” Humphries’ parents must have felt the same, because they “mostly looked appalled by the entire thing,” although they “cheered when Kim and Kris were pronounced husband and wife.”

How can you have a lavish wedding without breaking the bank?

Cupid’s Take:

Not all of us can afford a wedding like Kim Kardashian’s, but we can pretend! Cupid has some tips on how to make your wedding fit for a reality TV princess (without spending like one).

1. Dress up your gown: All brides know that it’s all about the dress, and you don’t have to empty your bank account to find a gown that makes you look like a million bucks.

2. Network for deals: You shouldn’t pay full price for anything if you know the right people. Is your aunt a chef? Have her cater the wedding to save money.

3. Keep it small: As your guest list increases, so do your costs.  Having fewer people means you can spend more on other things to make your wedding memorable.
