Hey Austin girls!
We booked our reception location (Max’s Wine Dive) months ago, and we’re really excited about them. We can have our ceremony there too, but now I’m having second thoughts about it. When I picture our wedding, I really picture something more airy and fresh. Problem is we’re on a SUPER tight budget.
At this point, Chapel Dulcinea is booked and has been for months, and I don’t know of anywhere else that we can have just the ceremony for cheap. I’ve got a call in to Mayfield park, and Zilker Botanical Gardens… does anyone have any other ideas?
I’ve heard a couple of officiants suggest the capitol grounds (free), but I don’t really know how it works.

Zilker Botanical was pretty reasonable, but they only allow something like 4-6 chairs for seating. It’s beautiful though!

Max’s Wine Dive = Brilliant!
Mayfield Park and the Capitol are both great ideas!

Thanks! We’re pretty excited about it! Decorations are going to be tricky since it’s already so heavily decorated.
We ended up booking ZBG, thanks Amber!. I was a little leery about the whole “standing only,” thing, but we spied on a wedding there this weekend and it seemed to be fine. In fact, since we only have 40 people, we may have them make a circle around us so that everyone gets a front row “seat.”

@waffle: I agree! I think Max’s wine dive is an awesome idea!
Austin is so close to the beautiful hill country…there’s so much outdoorsy places you could go for! However, with places like what you’re looking for don’t forget that weather is so unpredictable! So if you decide to do it at a park (like some other bees suggested) you’d have to have a plan B!
