Hello everyone! Does anyone know a wedding reception that is good for the budget? We are planning a $10k budget. I want it to be formal. We envision great location, good food, beautiful decor and flowers, good music etc. Pink is my favorite color but looking to match a silver or aqua blue motif. We are planning a May 2013 wedding. Any feedback helps. Thank you

In much simpler times, weddings were both formal and economic. Why not take a page out of that past practise and keep your money in your pocket. Pick an outdoor site, if you can, like a community park, which usually has lots of flowers and green area. It lends itself to some beautiful pictures before and after. As for the reception, choose a neighborhood community hall, which can be rented for a nominal fee, and sometimes for a donation. As for the great food, what's better than home-cooked food? Enlist the aid of some close relatives to supply a ham, another family brings a hip of beef, another can bring the potato salad, another brings the roasted potatoes, and so on. People love being involved in helping out. Anad the total cost is less than $1,000. I've passed along this suggestion to a number of my clients, and it works very well.

Try the Mission Bay Conference Center
http://www.acc-missionbayconferencecenter.com/planning-a-meeting/group-events/weddings-and-social-events.aspx?mkwid=sJONX2QhT&crid=25764039354&mp_kw=san%20francisco%20wedding%20venues&mp_mt=b&gclid=CI2s9uG9wLICFYnd4AodZhIAXg

Keep in mind the following:

* weekday evenings or luncheons are cheaper
* sunday brunch cheaper
* saturday is most expensive
* earlier timed events can be cheaper (from 12Noon)
* your guest list should be around 70 or less - average per person charge is $60 per plate plus tax and gratuity, which always must be paid
* a buffet is cheaper than a formal sit down because of the staff requirements


The venue I am mentioning also accepts outside food, and you can order just the bar, appetizers and one or two dishes from them and then bring in your own caterer. Compare costs and see what works for you.

Need invites or other printed materials for your wedding? Let me know. My packages include:
* Announcements
* Invites (custom to your colors & theme)
* Thank you cards to match
* Favor Magnets with bubbles and custom tags to match
* Escort cards or ceremony cards
* Free Welcome Wedding Banner (a $50 value)
Prices start at $200!
