Well, we are finally making some headway on the wedding plans. I booked a canopy for our backyard. Tables, chairs, linens, dance floor, bar, etc., are included. Whew! That should run us around $1,500 or less, actually. A fantastic price for a 150 person tent!
We had our "save the date" photos taken by a friend of ours. He is a budding photographer and offered to take our pictures for free as a gift. Fantastic!
she does and we really appreciate it.
When I said that we were doing a budget wedding I meant it! So far so good but I did just fall in love with a wedding gown that costs about $1300. Perhaps by saving so much on everything else I can splurge a bit on that gorgeous dress.
Next up, we need to find a D.J., an officiant and nail down a hotel for the guests. So far the hotel search is a bit annoying. Since we are in a tourist town and getting married during the summer, the rates are a bit high. The search and haggling continues.
