- Wedding: January 2015
Hello fellow Bees!
Long time reader, first time posting. The Fiance proposed back in December. Originally we were going to set the the date for January 2014, but instead pushed it to January 2015. Even then the date is tentative due to our budget (we know some venues offer better rates during different times of the year)
I know I have a little over a year and a half but I deffinitely do not want to go into debt for the wedding. The Fiance and I as of right now are paying for the wedding ourselves. We do know his father is paying for our honeymoon as a gift but we don’t know yet if anyone else is going to offer to help. I’m also not the type to expect anything from anyone, after all its our wedding, no one needs to help.
We’re a little bit of an off-beat couple. Even though we want certain traditions we don’t want the typical beach or banquet hall wedding. We want a very rustic (mostly outdoors if possible) wedding with gorgeous trees and cafee lights hanging above the family style tables and dance floor with southern style food.
The guest count is around 175 as of right now but we expect about 140-150. We’re trying to spend less then 6grand for ceremony,reception, and catering. Key word TRYING. We’ve been quoted so much in some places.
Long story short, any one in the Bee community know of any inexpensive outdoor venues? That aren’t beach-y? Am I crazy? Is this possible? Anyone out there with some advice? I’d really apprecite it!! This to me is the hardest part. Everything else I pretty much already have in the bag. :/
