- Wedding: October 2011
What ever happened to a small simple wedding? I don’t see how people can spend 40,000 on a wedding. Most of the places that I have seen on here posted of people and their ceremony and receptions, there’s no way I would be able to afford it! Do brides and grooms parents save up their entire married life for their childrens weddings?
I did not come from a rich family by any means at all. I grew up in a very small village in Ohio, fiance’ isn’t rich either. My fiance’ is in the military and we have just moved, it’s just amazing how much stuff you have to plan for a wedding. It’s even hearder when your family is so far away. (Not like I absoultely need their opinion anways) It’s our wedding, we can do what we want to. 🙂
Our Budget is 5,000 we have 2,000 saved up. We just want to say our vowes, celebrate our love with our families outside ceremony and inside reception. It’s not too hard to ask. It’s just finding the place to do it for under 5,000 (food and people minimums per plate are like 25-40.00 but you can’t rent the place unless you have more than 80 guests or 100 or even 125. That’s most Country Clubs anyways, and hotels aren’t much cheaper.
I’m thinkin’ of this one place for like 500.00 for ceremony and Reception, that’s ideal for 100people or more. I found it yesterday, it’s 20something minutes from our apartment. It’s pretty nice, I think. He agrees, 100 for a few cakes from walmart or a grocery store bakery, flowers from local grocery store….bundled up before hand, (Not having brides maids) I’m not sure how the venue does the food and alcohol there. F*&^ we may end up having it dry, it’s not what I want…but Sometimes things just HAVE TO DO.
So, did you have a wedding and a ceremony for 5,000 or less? How did you Do it?
