My DF and I are planning our wedding for next year in December. We would like to keep the cost as low as possible that way we can save money to buy our first home. Every person I talk to tells me, "There is no such thing as a cheap/budget friendly wedding, Good luck getting married for under $10,000."
Is this true? (I was thinking I would just do a lot of DIY Projects to cut some of the cost.)
Any advice? What other things can we do to save money on this wedding?
(Im in AZ- if that makes any difference)

Our wedding was on a budget and there is no reason why you have to spend an arm and a leg to get married. By all means, make your own centerpieces, it will save you money. My uncle works for a local paper and took our photos as our gift, my aunt had taken cake decorating classes and made our wedding cake as a gift and my other aunt made all of our centerpieces and bouquets. My mom has been sewing almost all of her life and made my wedding dress. In all, our wedding only cost us about $500. It was several years ago, but it still can be done. Ten grand for a wedding is not budget, it's crazy!
