Potluck wedding.  I want to do it, but less than 1/5 of my guests would be coming from within the state.  It’s low key, makes people feel involved (and most of my guests are the type who are ALWAYS involved behind the scenes), and you can invite a BUNCH of people without paying thousands for food.  Of course, then it’d be best to ask for food instead of a gift.  Maybe ask in-town guests to bring food and a registry for the out of town guests?

A potluck wedding would be a great way to save some serious cash :), and you could still have a huge bash with your closest family and friends >.<

Friends of mine just had their wedding at a small B&B in New Hope..it was fabulous! They set up two tents – one for eating and one for dancing. They had all bbq food and salads. It was delicious! They saved so much cash by ordering flowers wholesale and making their own favors, as well. A big wedding on a budget can definitely be done!
