I am the mother of five daughters, My youngest will be married this summer. After planning, preparing, budgeting and hosting four previous weddings, there are some things that need too be covered in these “how to have a wedding for under $_____” websites.
The first is where you live. In a small town in the south, prices are much cheaper than bigger cities!
The number of guests, and how you plan to feed them and serve alcohol makes a huge, huge difference!
Your budget may have to include other things if your parents are paying for it. Our budget must include me and my husband’s wedding attire, a bridesmaids brunch (a must here in the south), and other family expenses.
If you will plan for only a venue that is indoors, you won’t have the added expense of a backup venue. Go by your local bridal salons and find a young sales girl. She will have heard of all the local, great, budget venues around!!! Scour older local wedding magazines that have the colorful pages of recently married brides. Look at places they used for venues for ideas. And ALWAYS call places that do wedding catering, cakes, flowers, rentals and tell them you are a bride on a budget looking for a really nice venue for about $1,000. Trust me! These folks will know what turned out pretty, and what didn’t. And all these vendors can email you photos of their work at those venues!
My daughter has chosen to have her reception downtown at a place known for burgers and hot wings. BUT. She is having a 3:00 pm wedding at a downtown Church right across the street from the venue. This restaurant has an upstairs with a New Orleans themed balcony wrapping all the way around. The venue has agreed to let us have the entire upstairs and balconies for free, if we use their finger foods and drinks which are reasonably priced. She could afford a live jazz band (NO dancing), and the invitations read at the bottom. : join us for some light jazz, light hors d’oeuvres and drinks following the Ceremony
(People will know by the wording and the time of day that it’s not dinner (and since it’s downtown and guests are dressed up-they can choose one of many restaurants)
I hope this gives you some ideas and tells you how we are managing.
