Try getting this moved to the NYC Board.  The NYC Bees will have better ideas for you!  I’m pretty sure I’ve heard some budget/DIY NYC Bees buzzing around here!  Plus, check out the DIY boards and other DIY websites for everything you can do yourself!  Buy things used on Craigslist, do an appetizer only reception, limit your alcohol to beer and wine.   There are lots of ways to cut back to save some money. And you’ve got about 14 months.. SAVE EVERY PENNY!

Dear Skoiner 923

If you are open to other locations outside of Manhattan, I can help you out.  I’ve done great weddings for around $50- $60 per person with basic alcohol.  I can also help with print design and photography.

Keep in mind that a Sunday afternoon or a Thursday evening is quite cheaper than a Friday or Saturday night affair Give me a call 917 796 8499

Best wishes.

We ended up having to drastically scale back our wedding from our original $5000 budgt. Our new venue is actually FI’s house. But before that, we did find a couple of very affordable locations you might check out. On the upper east side, check out 303 East (at least I think that’s what it’s called)…If you are okay with going outside of the city, I highly recommend the Women’s Club of Englewood. It was our top choice before we switched our plans. Maria is great–especially if you’re on a budget.
