how do you even start to find a place?

Congratulations! Google your city and state for catering and banquet halls, you will have several places pop up. Phone several of the venues and have your list of questions ready. If they take the time to answer your questions, willing to provide information to help you, have some suggestions, then by all means stop by the venue to tour it. If they do not have the time for you on the phone and brush you off go to the next venue on the list and do not waste your time to visit them. Hope this helps you. Many Blessings, Monica Yvette McKee at Banquet Halls of Sneaky Pete's in Lewisville, Texas

You could go to the local collage and get the names of people in a photography major. They're broke college kids who are looking to make money and build their portfolio.

Dear Friend,
You'll have to order on line.
Check out Radical clothing:

They have accessories for boys too. It should look nice when it's all put together. Good luck!

Try searching for VFW and Tall Cedars lodges. If you have a direct connection with them, you can also try a Masonic lodge. Although the Tall Cedars are part of the Masonic family, they have more flexible rules as to who can rent from them.

Another option is, depending on your guest count, using your own yard or that of someone you know. You may also have a specific local home that intrigues you and you, and this is a longshot - but I have seen it work, might ask the owners if you could rent from them directly.

If you need any other ideas, feek free to contact me.

I would be very happy to help you find some venues in the Philadelphia area. Although we primarily serve the Central PA area, I actually live in Horsham, just north of Philadelphia.

Please do not hesitate to give me a call. I am available any time, but am actually at my computer now if you call.

I forgot there is a great hall in Penndel, Penndel Fire Hall that has a beautiful hall with a full kitchen and separate bar area with the beer meisters for kegs to be put in if you choose to do alcohol. The kitchen is a little out-dated, but is still very nice. The fee, if I remember correctly is $350 and you need to be out, including clean-up, no later than midnight.

Great space though that has been newly remodeled. Only downfall is that the bathrooms, while absolutely forgeous, are on the second Floor.

Hi Guest in Providence,

I'm also in Providence.

If you are looking for a beautiful outdoor location I would suggest the Chapel and nearby covered reception area at Colt Park in Bristol RI. It is a beautiful place. Many wedding photographers bring their wedding parties to the park to take both engagement and wedding photos. High School seniors take senior photos in the park.

If I can be of further help, feel free to contact me directly through my Eventective Listing.

Try the visual arts department of some of your local colleges/universities. There are students with excellent photography skills, and if they can produce a portfolio of some of their work, you can see the quality before hiring them for a non-professional rate smile

So far everything has been totally over the budget. I normally wouldnt mind its just that we have a baby on the way and have to save money for her as well. I also dont have a job. The reception hall that i found is nice and it only cost $600 to rent out. the problem is that the food will cost me $1900 for 75 guests. Should i make guests pay for their meals or find some place else?


Dear Friend:

It is inappropriate to ask your guests to pay for food.

However, since you are renting a hall, you can ask your close family members to help you with catering. Appoint five or six people to each make a large tray of a tasty dish. One could bring and chicken and rice dish. Another could bring a lasagne or a pasta dish. Another could make BBQ chicken wings. Another could bring a vegetable dish, like sliced squash, broccoli, carrots and peas in a white wine butter sauce along with a few dozen dinner rolls. Another could bring crudite and dip (assorted raw veggies with dipping sauce) and another could bring "pot stickers" (asian dumplings that come with a tasty plum or soy sauce). All of these things can be purchased in food warehouses such as "Costco" or "BJs Warehouse." Ask them in lieu of a gift, that if they make the meal and buy the sterno for their dish, that would go a long way to making your wedding successful (and tasty with a homemade flair). If you cook, make your own favorite dish, and you could get sternos at any 99 cents store.

What I would do is have your caterer bring in appetizers, such as spring rolls, mini quiches, pizzas, mini burgers, mini portions of mac and cheese and mini danishes and cookies. This could run about $900 or so for about 75 -100 people. You could save a lot by just catering appetizers and buy a nice sheet cake, wedding style from a local baker or order it from Costco as well. For flowers, I would get small potted flowering plants from Home Depot (they run about $10-20 apiece). Appoint a friend to take your photos or call a local photography school and ask if a student would be willing to shoot your wedding for about $200. They can give you a CD of photos and you can print them out later and make your own photo album.

For wedding favors and inexpensive invites, there are many do it yourself projects. You could also do a search on the internet for Ann's Wedding Bargains. They have "Send and Seal" invites which look great. Also log onto orientaltrading.com. Do a search for weddings. They have great trinkets for cheap prices.

Good luck! All the best to you and your family.

Sincerely,

Lise' Ramos

Find a photographer who charges for their time, not prints or albums. Many photographers will bill you an hourly rate, and then burn all the raw images onto a disk or stick and give them to you.

Save alot of money, you could do silk flowers. 1/2 the price of having real flowers.


I am getting married Aug 20, 2011.... I am saving money by making all the wedding flowers. I bought alot of red yellow, and white roses for $1.00 cdn each bunch at Wal-Mart, before I moved from Winnipeg to Powell River BC. I also bought a bolt of Tuelling from Michaels craft store for my mom's wedding and have loads of it left for my wedding. I just made sure I left a lot of the stem on so I can add it on others and make it bushier. I am also making my own centre pieces by going to a local Dollar store (discount store), buying tea lights, votives, using shells my daughters collected from the beach.

I did find a local bakery who is willing to make the cakes and desserts and also let us use her fountain cake stand for a very reasonable price. The cake top I found a place also in Winnipeg, who makes beautiful handblown glass!

Our dinner is going tobe buffet style, with some local flare. I have a few places making a couple of the dishes PLUS also doing a lot of the prep work myself for the meal will cut down alot of the costs.

the photographer and dj are both friends of my fiancee, so if you have friends and family that can do it or knows of people who can, they can help you with it as well. Talk to many people and get IDEAS from them, jot them down and them investigate..... as for the invitations and favors.... get a goup of gfs together and make a night or two out of it...... take a favorite picture of the two of you and make your own invitations and favors.

In Manitoba we have wedding socials where we can make money for the wedding.

We're getting married Aug 2011. Our ideal wedding is just a big party with all our friends and family present, dancing into the evening. The problem is, finding a venue! We're open to traveling anywhere in Washington state. Any suggestions since we don't have relatives with property to loan us for the evening? We're from the western part of the state, so if it's over here we're planning ~200 guests... if held in eastern Washington it would probably drop to 100 or so. Our budget is $5000. Any advice is MUCH appreciated. smile

My daughter just got married this weekend and after being in the wedding video business for over 30 years I never relized just how important our job is. We walked her down the aisle and were last down. Missed everything before us but got to watch and hear everything in our video. I believe the video is more important than the posed pictures, so folks, don't go too cheap on the video , make sure they are licensed and insured and not just some guy working out their house. Now our family will relive the day over and over. If anyone wants to see pictures from video contact me at maury@videoyou.com
