Is the $6000 wedding budget just for the reception? Or are you also planning on also getting your dress, rings, etc. with that money?

Honestly, yes, I think that might be mission impossible unless you have a friend or family member who owns a big place you can use. With 150 people that gives you $40 a person for food and drink not including venue fees, flowers/decorations, marquee if you have it outside, chairs, crockery/cutlery/glass hire, music, etc. Are you open to having a cash bar and doing canapes and cake instead of a sit down meal?

You can get married in the city parks for cheap, but you won’t be allowed to have a sit down meal or to drink alcohol there.

I don’t live in NYC, but I live in a city that has similar prices and I think it’s definitely doable especially since you don’t have to pay for catering! That’s a huge expense right there!


If you are willing to go to Jersey, this place rents for $3000is 


You also might consider this…

The other option would be doing a Sunday Brunch or a Friday night wedding. I would just look around- you’ll find something!
