So my fiance and I are on a pretty tight budget. We would like to do the entire wedding, ceremony and reception for no more than 5,000. We have a small guest list, 40-50 people. Suggestions please, also I do not like banquet halls really. It’d have to be super unique for me to consider it, I just do not enjoy that whole banquet feeling. And neither of us have houses that would be good to host the event.

art galleries are wonderful for reception

I know that parks are budget friendly – maybe there is a nice one nearby? You could have a lot of fun with lighting and lanterns.

Loft? I know a lot of people like to rent them out for events.

If you’re in Chicago, there are TONS of places you could do it! Try looking into some museums- they’ll often let you rent out a space for a “donation” of a few hundred dollars.

We had our wedding at a B&B, it was pretty inexpensive.

We’re doing our ceremony and reception at a local restaurant, which is a really rustic old building that used to be a mill. The ceremony will be outside by the water and the reception inside (we get the second floor all to ourselves). This is for a reception of about 60 – 70 people. It may not be quite what you’re looking for in terms of uniqueness, but I do recommend looking into a restaurant. They tend to work well for smaller weddings and no need to worry about hiring a separate caterer (We’re doing a buffet with four entree selections for less than $30pp).
