I would go with courthouse and BBQ.  Or maybe someone in your family could organize a potluck! I love potlucks. 🙂

I think it depends on what you imagine your wedding day being. We talked about going to the courthouse & then a nice dinner. After consideration we realized we’d regret not having a wedding reception. Decided to keep it small to compromise & pushed our date back. So ask yourself what you’ll be happy with. Without knowing what you want I vote for a backyard wedding.

I’m doing a backyard wedding and it definitely helps on a tight budget.  Our major expenses will be food, photography, table/chair rentals, and attire.  I like that we can take advantage of the resources we already have, like our big yard, kitchen, good parking, and kegerator.  The things we’re saving on are venue, transportation (because the ceremony and reception are in the same place), alcohol, and decor (we’re doing lots of DIY projects and we have a great vision for the yard).  Backyard weddings can be really flexible with budgets 🙂

Backyard morning wedding here – it definitely cuts down on the alcohol consumed if you have it earlier in the day! I vote backyard 🙂

I was going to originally do a backyard wedding at FI’s grandparents house… but after thinking about logisitcs, and chair, table and tent rentals (always good to have a plan B) it totaled to be close to what a venue would charge.

Is there any reason that you HAVE to get married now? I vote to wait a year, that is what my Fiance and I did to be able to afford our wedding and we had no regrets!
