How many people do you want to invite and do you want to provide a full meal or would you be willing to just offer afternoon or evening canapes? Open or cash bar? Is that budget just for the reception or for the ceremony as well? Would you hold both in the same place or do you want separate venues?

We’re doing ours relatively informally since we’re having a big ceremony overseas next year. Basically, we have a friend who lives in a swanky apartment building with a lovely open air rooftop and side room that we can hire out for about $75 an hour, then we will cater it ourselves and get help with catering and serving from TaskRabbit. Plenty of buildings have something like this so it is worth asking around. We’ll probably do the ceremony at city hall or in a park. Our main budget is going on food, alcohol and photography ($1000 for two hours, but the guy is amazing and that should cover our ceremony and portraits afterwards).

Hope that helps! 🙂
