I am planning our Wedding as I write this. We have rented a quality park shelter for our Wedding/Reception at a reasonable price, we can have it dawn to dusk at 110.00. Our Ceremony will be Outside with a Arch I bought at Michaels for 9.99 and I went to Walmart for Tulle & Vining, Ribbon. My Reception will be Indoors mainly with the option of outdoor fun for any children. Indoor shelter is is my Rainy day back up. I'm decorating from my local dollar store & Michaels mainly. My colors are pastel blues & lavender & I've bought my tablecloths, plates, cups, plastic ware and anything that is workable from $$ store. At Michaels they have $1 bins and I picked up my ribbons. a lot of my flowers for .59 to .99 each. Made my own bouquet and found favors at Michaels in there Clearance bins.
Go budget hunting at you'll be surprised what you can find, In 2 weeks I've spent a whole $50.00 on all my reception ideas using the double heart & Love theme. Add the shelter & were burning our own Ceremony music & Dance music off our computer & taking my smaller stereo. Being this is not our first marriage we opted to be very thrifty but elegant and comfortable. Hope these ideas help some. Best Wishes..
Hi I live in Conroe, TX and I need a cheap place to have my reception. I'm not sure where to have it, and don't know many places. Help
I need a cheap place to hold a reception the date is April 26,2008 for about 150-200 people will provide private catering.
How about a local campground? Most have an activity hall or function house? Girl scout or boy scout camp? State park with a large covered picnic area? The local VFW, Elk's or Eagle's clubs around here are like $200.00 but if you know someone who is a member you can ask them to rent it in their name for you and get it cheap-cheap.
I am to soon marry my fiance. We are waiting for his pre deployment papers to finalize a date, don't want to schedule something and he wont be here! LOL But I just recently moved to Louisville, KY and I am clueless as to where I should look for a place to have our ceremony and reception in one. We will only have about 20 people there, but we want to have the dancing, eating and just have a good time. Any suggestions?
We rented a gazebo at a small, local park. We were able to decorate it ourselves and have food delivered and set up as we wanted it. As it was a park, alcohol was not permitted, but we didn't mind this restriction at all. If you do have your reception outside, be sure to consider this when planning your menu and the timing of the cake being delivered. Nobody likes to eat "warm" shrimp cocktail, or have the flowers melting off of the cake!
Small towns with vfw's,moose,ect ect. is an option. They are for the most part cheaper too. Drive a little save a lot.
I have a big problem. I need help! Something of an emergency. We had to go into our wedding money so need to get a hall an to have the reception cheap! My coordinator is paid already. I heard about the fire dept. I need more ideas. Please help me.
