How does the venue with the May 5 date stack up price-wise with the others?

Hmm. I think that since you seem to be ok with doing the garden theme, that I’d browse around a little more and see what venues are free for Cinco de Mayo. I think depending on what’s more important to you (saving the $$ or throwing your dream party), you should go with your gut after a few more venue searches.

Personally, I think I’d go for the garden party because it’s more flexible- you can do it any day you want, you can have the party you want rather than scaling back, and you save the $$ for a down-payment.

It has been kind of dead, hasn’t it?  Maybe people are out having fun now that the sun’s out. πŸ™‚

I am unhelpful on your actual question, though, because it’s about what feels the most important to you two. I would probably skip the theme and save the money, but if it would give you both a huge amount of joy to have that theme, then you should go for it. 

As to limiting the venue choices – that only matters if you don’t like the one that is available very much. In that case, I think it answers your question for you.

Awww, this makes me sad πŸ™  I love your cinco de mayo theme, but I’m all for saving $$ when you put wedding vs. house.  Have you exhausted all the venues in your area for May 5?

I know you said you’re all-or-nothing, but I am all about compromise. Saving money is obviously very important to you. Cinco de Mayo seems to be important to you. I truly do not see any reason you can’t have both. Special little touches, DIY or otherwise can bring the feel to a backyard “fiesta” wedding. I think you can do it! Keep us posted.


(And yeah, Sunday afternoons must be when everyone decides to have a life away from the internet haha.)

You could have a non- Cinco de Mayo themed wedding at a venue that you love on a different day, and throw a Cinco de Mayo bbq at your place (where you live now or whenever you get your new place). We are always looking for reasons to bbq and Cinco de Mayo is as good a reason as any. Then you can still have your fun fiesta themed party (for way less money) and a beautiful garden wedding AND save for your house. Oh yea!

Well, our parents gave us $5000 each with the same idea.  Spend it on the wedding or just keep it.  We spent every penny and then some.

There’s nothing wrong with WANTING a wedding, or other more frivolous things.  Real estate will always be there.
