PLANNING A WEDDING!

My boyfriend proposed this weekend. We are planning a Fall 2007 wedding. We will be on a tight budget and would welcome any cost saving tips or tips in general!

Thanks!!!

OMG!!!! Congratulations!!!!

Tight budget:
My friends that try to conserve money have had their wedding at a restaurant, with the person conducting the ceremony doing it right there. Usually restaurants have separate rooms and they usually have flowers, etc and they charge one flat fee which is KEY!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! The money saving idea that we used....fly to vegas! LOL. We were married in Vegas and a lot of our friends and family came. It was a blast. And SO cheap compared to a traditional wedding. The whole trip probably cost $2000

Congratulations!!!

I'm working on a fall 2006 wedding (been engaged since last August). I can tell you - seriously - we wish we had planned a destination wedding somewhere. Go somewhere, to a beach, etc., for a long weekend and at the end of the weekend, the last night everyone's there, get married on the beach. Then send everyone home the next morning and stay for a bit longer for your honeymoon. The people you really care about will come, and you won't have to pay for your coworkers' dates, and other random people, who you've never met!

Additionally, see what you can do yourselves. For example, we bought a case of mini wine bottles (the kind with like 2 glasses in a bottle), at about $1 a bottle, from a liquor store, and a box of those name tag stickers, blank, and my sister made a "label" using a picture of a rose, and a text box over it with our names. Now we have personalized wine for every guest! If you took a little bit more time, you could print the guests' name on each bottle, with their table, and then it's their placecard too, if you're doing something sit-down, for $1 a guest!

Target has a surprisingly good selection of paper for things like programs, etc.

Unless you're very very social, consider having a very small wedding. We're inviting about 175, and honestly, I know that 80% of them, I really don't care if they share my wedding day with me or not. Think about who you really care about being there, rather than who you're going to offend if you don't invite them. It's your day, not theirs.

We have an opening in one of my groups, "Wedding Slimming" if you're interested!

Good luck!

not really a money saving thing but something good to do in general

keep a notebook with everything from flowers to tux. Log everything in the notebook and use sheet protectors to put invoices, recipets, cards whatever. The more organized you are the less money you'll spend- that's been proven
