Perhaps you need to wait and save more for your dream wedding if it is that important. I personally understand the stress of staying within budget though I’m lucky enough to have someone else paying for it all. the very least in catering we could find for our wedding was 7k but thats still within my budget. Perhaps instead of a caterer you talk to family members who would be willing to help you with food. Also what is important to you? My aunt is making us our cake because I don’t have a huge vision of a wedding cake and it cuts cost. Craigslist, ebay, goodwill, and other thrifty spots are great. There are even brides selling thier stuff on this site for good prices. Evaluate what you really want and spend the money on that. Cut cost on the things that are not important. Also what about an Ipod DJ? perhaps a cousin or close friend can run an ipod in which you load all the songs for your wedding. This could cut cost and allow you to have something important to you.

You can have a beautiful wedding without the big cost for sure. It just involves a little creativity.

There are plenty of ladies on these boards planning weddings for 100 people for less than $2,000, heck some are even planning for $1000, it is doable. Take a look at what YOU need for the wedding before you get sucked in to to corporate wedding trap. do you NEED a fancy dining hall or would you have just as much fun at a park, a zoo, a museum or some other place that might be cheaper still? Do you need a fancy plated meal or will a family catered buffet be okay with your plans? Do you NEED hudreds of dollars of flowers? or can you make your bouquet or have someone help you arrange wild flowers the day before? There are plenty of ways to cut costs.
