Well Ladies, I just added up again how much this wedding is going to cost. I have been pretty ...
I know alot of folks who just got licences and went to the court house. Now that's a cheap wedding.
I don't plan on having a very large extravagant wedding, for all truth I can't afford one, not that it wouldn't just be fantastic!
I don't plan on debt for my wedding. I have two kids to worry about...
Our budget is about 5,000. That includes everything ladies but the honeymoon which my fiance' still has to persuade me to do, since I am deathly afraid of flying.
We haven't agreed on using a DJ yet as I want a cheap one, and I don't want all the fancy packages. I just want someone to try to get the crowd going and play our selected music tastes...
Our rental for the Reception Hall is 200. Yep, I know ladies are spending well into the thousands for a deposit on a Reception Hall...but the country is good for deals. They focus on community.
Of course the venue is what you pay for. It's a roof over our heads, but it does have a kitchen and a hardwood floor.
This one is particularly old, being well into it's 100years.
Again, I'm not picky. I'm going to spruce it up...with color and decoration's. It def won't be a banquet hall with it's satin and silks and chandeliers but it'll be my wedding. And I really like tradition and old school. This will kind of be like my mother and my mothers mothers wedding.
The linens are white so a table runner in orange or silver will be bought offline...
dishes are white, so napikins will have color...
and the chairs...oh god. I hate teh chairs, just those ugly grey plastic backed chairs.
But...I plan on using tulle in my color with a flower atatched at the back, so the ugly back of the chairs will be covered and look lovely...it'll be cheaper than the chaircovers which I won't rent! And I have a list of 33 odd kids coming. They'll destroy white chair covers! So orange tulle is the way I'm goign to go.
I can't wait to get them done and put up photos.
