WE have alrady canceled one place and change the wedding date because of the price. My Fiance and I are paying for it alone and i need some ideas to keep the price low. Im not trying to break the bank. I am a student so money is tight. Im DIY with LOTs of things and i Already have my dress and veil! We already cut the list as much as we can beacuse both sides of the family are huge! Any ideas?????? I also live in Tampa Fl if anyone knows cheap places to wed!

@beccanmatt08: A couple of places that are affordable in Tampa Bay are:
East Bay Country Club: http://www.eastbaycc.com/
Banquet Masters: http://www.banquetmasterscatering.com/
Here’s a tip: stay away from the popular beach locations. Mandatory gratuities are a minimum of 21% on top of your food and beverage minimums and taxes!

@beccanmatt08:Hi! I know exactly how you feel, Im a tampa bride too, & a student on a budget for 200+ guest wedding. The best place we found is columbia restaurant.
We are doing a lunch reception since it cut the price down significantly!.
we are paying less than $22 a person & they include tables & white or ivory linens.
i’m not sure if you’ve been there but the location is beautiful (historic) & the food is fabulous!
here is a pic of the room we will have our reception.
They are very nice & will help you with anything you need.
they also have round tables of 8-9 ppl/per/table. :] i hope this helps!

Lake Mirror Complex in Lakeland is cheap… and beautiful… we are getting married at the Peggy brown building… the disadvantage is you have to book in advance.

@beccanmatt08: awesome! The best part is it is so close to Lake mirror, hollis gardens, etc. that when it comes to pictures, there are so many wonderful backdrops!
I hope you love it as much as I do!

Not sure if you’ve found a place or not but check out Keel and Curley Winery in Plant City. That’s where we’re getting hitched. It’s crazy cheap. $600 for the whole facility that includes tables, chairs, and the gazeebo for the ceremony.
