What are some advantages of getting married at home?

Cupid’s Advice:

Getting married at one’s home may not be everyone’s piece of cake; some individuals want grand ballrooms for their guests to dance in, but for some getting married in one’s backyard may just be the trick. Here are some pieces of advice from Cupid when considering a wedding at your home:

1. Free venue: Weddings are not cheap and if you are able to host the ceremony and wedding at home, do it! It’s a great way to save money which you could then put back into the wedding in the form of favors or in more expensive food options.
