Wedding Saving Ideas?
My boyfriend & I are planning to get married in late-June. We're trying to keep our budget to $2500 or less, with fewer than 100 people in attendance (probably more like 50-75).
We will get married in my church and have the reception there ($50 site fee if we don't clean it up). I'm considering ordering a small 'bridal' cake (for show) and a sheet cake (for serving guests). We're only doing a cake & punch reception, so no catering. A friend of a friend will do the flowers, which will charge much less than a florist; plus we'll be doing minimal decorations. Boyfriend's co-worker does photography, or I will ask at the local university if any teachers or students do freelance work.
What other ideas do you have?
