So I just now got things started I put a deposit down on the beach chairs and arch found a restaurant and set the date. Now I feel safe. everyone eles thinks im crazy still! Looking at rings next week and picking out a menu at the restaurant!
Invites all send out next month saving money and skipping save the date invites and skipping bridesmaids and groomsmen to save on flowers! buying a dozen roses at sams and calling that it! staying at a firm 20 people no music either cant afford it!
Cheap beach wedding! under 2000

as far the cake goes, I would make sheet cakes and then a smaller “wedding” cake if you dont feel like you can make it.
Here is a very simple way to make cakes look cute though if you want to try it! I absolutely love it if you can get it down right. Maybe practice for birthdays, engagement party, etc.
as far as music goes, cant you find a way to get electricity to where you are having it and have soft music playing during the reception using an ipod/laptop? I think that would add a lot. Also maybe buy a small bag of fake rose petals to lay across the tables or your isle. cheap way to add a lil extra for the pictures.

also, cant you have bridesmaids and groomsmen since they pay for their own outfit? you can go more casual. just a thought.

@stepchild: I wish I wouldn’t have done a wedding party! I’m mostly stressed out because of these girls that are supposed to be my friends. But since this is the first wedding on my mom’s side of the family, we HAVE to do it the traditional way 🙁
You can use an ipod for music if you have one. Are you doing a cake and punch reception?
