I just got engaged a month ago and these last 2 weeks have been a whirlwind! My FI and I are wanting to get married in April of 2018 before I start nursing school in May. Here’s my dilemma, I want an outdoor wedding that doesn’t feel Vegas-y. While also keeping low on costs. Our guest list is nearing 250 people since we both come from very large families. We were thinking about having a small ceremony with our closest families and then a dinner with only the people from the ceremony. Now for the reception, my parents own land in Mt. Charleston but the entire ground is gravel. Large, hard to walk in heels gravel. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to handle this? And how to take a large, open area and turn it into something romantic and airy?
