@EsC87:  You can look into getting a permit to get married at a public park- that’s cheaper.  There are smaller venues in Balboa Park that might be cheaper.  I think San Diego Botanical Garden is a bit less expensive than most places also.  Or is there someone in your family with a nice backyard?  Getting married in SD can be pricey, I know our guest minimum is 125!

My wedding is in March and I’ve been engaged since May of last year, and to be honest, I could have done it in 7 months no problem. There were at least 3-4 months where I didn’t have anything to do because I had booked all my big vendors but had to wait to do some stuff until now, closer to the wedding. 7 months is completely doable.

I’m getting married at the Mission Beach Women’s Club-its $1250 on a Saturday and $1000 on a Sunday, which is what we’re doing. We’re having a taco cart and margarita machine…..its going to be awesome. We are expecting around 85 people and our budget is $10k, so I think you can totally do it for $8k with 50 people.
