I have so many questions!

  • How many people did you want to invite?
  • How do you feel about a destination wedding?
  • Can you cook?
  • Do you belong to a church?
  • Do you have a circle of friends willing to help?

The answers to these questions will allow us to better help you.

Welcome to the Hive and Congratulations!  What about a “potluck” backyard wedding?

On a side tangent, if you offer to pay for the additional cost of yourself on insurance, your dad and stepmom may be willing to add you onto it, however because you are over 18, legally they may not be permitted to do so if you are out of school.

Secondchances poses some good questions.  A lot of things will need to be DIY or friendor.  Scour the boards for a secondhand dress.  Pull out the ipod for the wedding.  See if you can have a friend officiate in your state.  Potluck dinner or see if friends/relatives will cook for you.  (If not, cake and punch reception.)  Electronic invites.  Skip the alcohol.  Cut flowers from friends backyards for centerpieces or see what you have at home that can work (e.g. unique curos, books, etc.).  It’s doable, it’ll just take work and accepting you can’t have everything (e.g. you may need to decide between spending on a dress or photographer).

Welcome to the hive! 

A good friend of mine did a potluck wedding at their church. It was one of the best weddings that I’ve been to. They had a tight budget and a lot of friends helped them out. A member from the church was a photographer-took the photos, one was a baker-made the cake. 

Also, you could do a cake and punch receptions. Those are nice as well.
