We recently got engaged and are trying to stay away from getting into debt because of a party. We are in Tampa, FL and if anyone has any good suggestions of places that are all inclusive and willing to stay open a little bit later than normal we will appreciate it. Or if you know of any places that we can hold the ceremony and reception we can do the decorating and catering ourselves. We would like to stay between $5000-7000 if it's all inclusive. Any suggestions will be a great help as to how to get started in the planning process...Thanks in advance!

Hello, My fiancee and I got engaged on Feb. 12th, 2016. We are looking for a August 27th, 2016 or a Saturday in September 2016. We are trying to stay in a $500 to $1000 budget wedding seeing that we can't afford too much. I live in Austin and it has to be Handicap accessible. Does anyone have any ideas?

I'm new to this site and think it's great so far! My fiance and I are on a tight budget. We are getting married August 12, 2017 and looking for a photographer that takes beautiful photos for a decent price. Our budget is about $500-$1000. We're getting married in Bridgewater, MA. We're also looking for a great caterer with GREAT prices! Any suggestions on both would be fantastic! Thank you so much!!

Focus on what is really important to you. you can get wedding invitations cheap and use websites and such for rsvp instead of stamps. You can save by not having programs or favors. You can also have you wedding on off times. For example, I had a bride that got married at a location that usually costs $50,000. She spent $15,000 for 75 guests because she got married off season and had a breakfast wedding. Saved so much $!

I am on a tight budget want to spend only 2,000. Looking for a venue to have wedding ceremony and reception for under 50 guest.

Look into Bonefish Grill. They offer private dining venues for very reasonable pricing.

I think being honest with your vendors and letting them know you are working on a smaller budget should get you some discount favors!
Best of Luck!

We are looking for an indoor/Outdoor wedding and reception. We are on a very strict budget being that the first venue our daghter had decided on has fallen through with no contact in several weeks now. The wedding is Oct 17,2015 and we would like to be in the Clover SC area or within 30 - 40 miles of. We also need accommodations never by for out of state guests. At most $1,000 or possibly a little more since we already have caterer, decorator, photographer etc. We will need chairs and tables provided. Thank you, Kim Hans

We are having a small wedding. About 60 people at the most. We are paying for it ourselves so we can't afford very much. We want an outdoor wedding. Is there anything in Jacksonville, Fl that is under $1,000?

Photo638735 had some good, simple ideas. What you're really shooting for are great memories, more than "great things." Any budget, any expense can create that. Go for romance, atmosphere and ambiance. I had a wedding, having spent oly $3000, although that was a number of years ago. But several people told me it was "the most beautiful" wedding they'd been to, so it can certainly be done! One other thing--If you'd like something extra, as in entertainment and are on a budget, I draw caricatures for entertainment, and I'm willing to work with anyone's budget. I'm a member of this site, and I probably have already sent you an email. My Facebook page is Marsha Eaton Caricatures. My email address if bunceneaton@att.net. Let me know if I can be of service!

Check out our Cleveland Wedding Locations and see if there is something that fits your needs.

The Goodtime III might work, and Anatomy might be perfect if you are looking for something a little different.

Good luck!

How inexpensive? Are you able to be outside, maybe at a local park? You could also use their facilities (grills, picnic area, equipment).

Many people it seems are looking for High Quality and/or special rates or discounts. My advice would be to decide WHEN the wedding would be, and maybe have the reception at someone's home. I have DJ'd a wedding reception last August in a cul de sac and it was one of the BEST I have done!
NO rental fees for your own neighborhood, and the entire block can help with the decorating!
As far as DJ's and/or music, you'd want to confer with the local city laws and ordinances. Many places don't allow outdoor music after a certain time, usually 10pm.
Either way, you'd definitely have a LOT more fun going that route if you are terribly strapped with cash!

Good Luck!

Planning a wedding on a budget is what all brides do. The first step honestly is to select a budget that is reasonable and then stick to it. The easiest way to go over budget is the guest list. If you would not take this person out to dinner and spend 20 or more on their food they do not need to be invited to the wedding. There are 4 things that need to be left to the professionals everything else you can do it yourself if you choose. 1. Photography 2. Coordination of the wedding 3. DJ (iPhones and iPods are forbidden) 4. Catering. Check out our blog for more information about weddings on a budget.
