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!

I really see this so often "We are on a budget"...All weddings should be on a budget! Some are small and others large. It is only smart to decide how much you will spend and stick to it. It may not be best to go "all inclusive" unless you want all the services they offer. If you pay for something you don't want or could do without, that is not good use of the funds. It is best to create a budget that lays out each area of the wedding and how much you want to allocate for each area. You have to have an officiant and the rest is "icing". You can adjust as needed, too. For example, if you allocated $1000 for a dress and only spent $300, you can put the savings into the honeymoon fund or toward more photography, etc. You need to know what are your priorities.

Try staying at a reasonably priced beachfront resort. Get married on the gulf, have your reception outdoros on the sand as well. I just shot a wedding where they rented tables, used the sand, brought their own linens, etc, and had a caterer bring a Mexican buffet. It was a fun, elegant affair. I've seen a couple rent a condo and prepare a wedding buffet themselves for their guests after the ceremony. Depends on how small or large of an event you are planning. Many parks will allow that kind of party as well.
Good luck with your planning.

We are planning for 7/13/13 and about 120-130 guests! So far we have found a couple places but they don't want you bringing in outside catering or drinks which makes everything so much more. I think once we find a venue everything else will fall into place.

Need place for rec/hall

yes we do need a place to have the ceremony and reception. We may have found one for the reception but still looking for better deals if possible.

Didn't see your email, do try again. Yes, great resources for table decor! You should also become a member of WeddingBee.com They have a lot of brides selling their used items with a great savings to you. But, of course, I'd be willing to help with your decor as I do have some good resources that have great deals, depending upon what you are looking for. mybelovedwedandart@gmail.com Best! Lise

I'm not from your area, but you should do an appetizer/sweets table at a nice local lounge or restaurant. With your low budget, it would be impossible to have a formal reception, but you could still have lots of fun!



If you need inexpensive invites, I can design those for you. For $75 I can do 50 invites, matching thank you cards and 50 thank you favor magnets (you need to send me a nice, clear photo of you and your fiance). email me at www.mybelovedwedandart@gmail.com

What kind of wedding supplies are you looking for? Are you looking for centerpieces? Wedding Invitation? Wedding Favors? Cake Toppers? Edible Wedding Favors? Wedding Lanterns? Aisle Runners? Thank You Notes? Bridal Jewelry?

Sometimes, the dollar stores might be your new best friend in planning a wedding for certain decorations and in making your own centerpieces.

But, you have to keep in mind if you do use less expensive items they should still look elegant for your wedding. Have a crafty family member help you if you decide to DIY.

Even if you do approach a wedding supplier, always ask if they have any specials or discounts they can give you. It doesn't hurt to ask, even if they don't mention one from the beginning. We know lots of us are on a budget in planning a wedding or any special event. That's why Mona's Chocolates tries their best to work with the customer's budget. We helped a bride purchase all her wedding accessories, favors and gifts. She was so grateful to find one place to offer her everything she wanted and saving her lots of money too.

I wish you all best of luck in finding what you are looking for with the budget you have on hand.

Congratulations on your engagement! Your budget is actually great for a guest count of 130, and I would love to discuss some ideas with you. I am a certified wedding and event planner recently based in Montgomery, AL, but most of my professional experience is from San Diego's booming wedding and special events industry. I have contacts in the Tampa area, and I would be happy to recommend some to you if I could get a better understanding of what you are wanting to do. I specialize in creating spectacular events on a budget, so I can talk to you about some ideas (even if you aren't looking to hire a wedding planner). Feel free to email me or call me at your convenience, and I would be happy to speak with you! I could also lend my services for helping plan, setup/breakdown and coordinate the event so that you can just enjoy your wedding on the day of if you decide to have some extra help!

You can have your dress, flowers, venue and invitations sent but without the Marriage Officiant, there is no Wedding.
I officiate marriages for couples who live in or are traveling to N. Central FL. My clients also are from out of state or worldwide, traveling to FL for a destination wedding or vacation. I love weddings and work to make it easy and low cost for my bridal couples. I understand we all have lives, jobs, and Brides have 100+ details to do or remember for their wedding! Over the years I've developed a simple process to work with them to create their ceremony efficiently on-line; so they waste no time with unnecessary meetings. Everything is ready for their Wedding day. http://www.oursimpleceremony.com/index.htm :-)
Guest January 31, 2013
Is there anyone that can do reasonably priced ticket stub invitations? We are having about 120 guests so we may need about 70 invites. I have seen some on etsy.com but they are too much for us. Please email me at trinigirl78@gmail.com if you can. Thanks!

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.

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!
