When you say teeny tiny can you give us a ballpark of what you mean?  Lots and lots of hive members have planned weddings on less than $5000, and there is a great wedding blog about a woman who planned her wedding on $2000.  It can be done and done beautifullly!

we also had a non existant budget.  We had our wedding and it turned out prity nice on about $1000.  Maybe post what your wedding ideas are…. Like place style, number of people, etc. I would love to see what you want and see if we can help with ideas:)

Yeah whats the range of your budget? Try not to stress too much. You can always postpone your wedding date to save money on your own for it. Or you can do a lot of things DIY. Its hard sometimes because you see so much “wedding porn” but you just have to remember that no matter what your day will be beautiful and special in its own way! I had to stop worrying what other people will think about my wedding and just start to do what makes me happy!

My friend had a wedding costing 700 dollars.

The had a backyard wedding, she found the cutest white knee length dress for 70 dollars. Asked people to bring a plate and BYO, afternoon wedding and they turned into a cosy family dinner style event. The most expensive cost she said was the celebrant.

It was one of the best weddings EVER! there theme was lemon and lime and she used those lemons and lime as the centrepieces in a plain clear vases.

They had the cake as a big slab cake, nicely done tho. And we went and got her flowers from the local markets in the morning of the wedding. And they had a family friend with a creative eye take the photos.

You can do it!

We started with a budget of $5,000 and are having a completely traditional wedding with a sit down meal in a ballroom and all.  We’ve had to increase our budget to $6500, but that’s still pretty meager in the wedding world.

We had a budget of $5k and came in under, and it was gorgeous! It can be done (and honestly, it could have been done for less had I not gotten so panicky and started just throwing more things in).
