@KVann:  I got married at a barn and it wasn’t even $2000 to rent. Maybe you will also find affordable rental prices at churches where they will let you have a reception in the basement. You could also get married in your or a close family member’s backyard if space allows.

The thing is, you’re inviting a lot of people so you’ll have to really budget your catering bill as well.

Maybe there’s a restaurant where you live where you can rent out the place? But it depends on the prices they give you. Having a wedding earlier in the day could save you money so you aren’t expected to provide dinner.

Google “A practical Wedding.” They have a lot of advice there too.

is there a lake or park you can do a ceremony at? Also, I’ve seen good ideas on pinterest and stuff where they do morning or early afternoon weddings, which saves a lot of $$ on food! I think it might be hard to find dinner for 100 people to stay within the budget and still have money for dress, decoration, ect.

@KVann:  Pick up a copy of the book Bridal Bargains. It has tons of great ideas for finding a creative venue. Have you looked into local parks and garden clubs? A lot of parks have events room’s they can rent out. If you’re not serving alcohol then you may be able to find a unique venue others can’t use because they don’t allow alcohol.
