- Wedding: September 2014
I just got engaged 2 weeks ago but I’m so eager to start planning so I can start saving and start paying!!! I know this may sound ridiculously low, but our wedding budget is only $5000, not including my dress. My grandmother has offered to pay for catering. Our plan was to get a beach permit and insurance for Long Branch beach, which would run uabout $250 and have a simple ceremony. Our close friend has a license to marry folks, and he volunteered to do our ceremony for free.
NOW, we initially planned to do a backyard reception at my grandmothers house. We were going to rent chairs, tables, tent, dance floor, linens, and lights which the cheapest quote I found was $2860; including the tax. I wanted to look into just renting a hall who already has chairs and tables, but I’m having a hard time finding any hall rentals in the area!!!
My guest list is estimated at 200 people right now!!
Can anyone help me find a hall rental to accommodate this many people but still be in my budget!!
