I'm in Cortland, NY. Most of the places that we found on line are already booked even for our new wedding date! What I am worried about is that our guests will think we went super cheap. I am looking for a lake or a creek to get married by because we are doing a beach theme wedding.

I am getting married April 16, 2011 and I don't have a reception venue. I am nervous that I will not be able to find one in my budget. I only have 262 days left and haven't done anything.

I live in the Nashville, TN area, if any body knows about a great venue to host a reception.

Guest July 26, 2010
My suggestion is that you please yourself. My bet is that your family and friends will think it is great, where ever you have it.

My biggest worry is not just the venue. It is getting the party favors together. And making sure that the whole thing goes off without dropping the ball.

Go back to some of your favorite restraunts. They may do catering. How many are you planning to have? Do tastings that way. For cakes, bakeries offer cake tastings before you buy one. That is how we found our caterer and reception sight.

My name's Tiffany, and I'm marrying the best friend I've ever had (& I've only known him 10months) on June 4, 2011. My biggest fear is that we won't get married at all. We don't have the money to do it, and we're not looking for anything big; only simple, but everytime we give an idea to my mom that we like she's automatically, "FIND SOMEONE ELSE TO PAY FOR IT THEN IM NOT."-I can't keep doing it and I need help.Any DYI tips and cheap ideas would help. Please send to t.erin92@yahoo.com. Thanks

We're getting married 9/25/2010. 47 days. All set except for decorating the reception hall and flowers. One of my only "dream wedding" features has always been to have gobs of flowers. But I got hit when the economy turned so I have to limit the flowers to probably just bouquets & boutenaires. Made an appt w/ grocery store florist, but I'm not confident in her. Rest of decore will have to be fake flowers,which I don't love. I have tulle, I'll get small lights. Centerpieces are all set,but I can't picture how to frame the 60+ foot wall of windows that looks over the water. It's a very plain white wall so it needs something! I feel like I've used up all of my creativity at this point. And I keep grinding my teeth.

Ok. Take a deep breath. Breathe. Now, have you checked into what real floral arrangements would cost you?

I only checked Costco. My appt w/ the grocery store is Fri. Someone was going to help us do the flowers, but she passed away, that's why it's sort of late in the game. I did a post on this site for a local florist (or someone who has a side business/hobby).

I am getting married on 1/1/2012 the wedding is going to be in Newbedford, Massachusettes where my fiance is from and all his family and friends. I am worried because I have never been there and he and his entire network are Portuguese. I am learning their language and cooking but i want the grooms invitations and programs and everything to be intertwinned and connected with American. I am trying to do all this and more on a tight budget but I have no ideas where to even begin. Any suggestions I would be greatful. Thank you for your generosity and kindness god bless everyone on their special days !!! Carrie

I have seen some people are struggling with finding a photographer, I am in Canada but can travel to where ever your holding your wedding.

As other people have suggested it's important to get a feel for what type and style of photography each photographer does.

You may check out my work at www.sarafinchan.com or email me at quentin@sarafinchan.com with any questions you may have regarding capturing your perfect day.

Guest September 1, 2010
I want to get married September 6th, 2011 because September 6th is when my fiance' and I first met but, it's a Tuesday and I don't know who could make it. I also want to have it at my favorite beach (Brookings, Oregon) but, my fiance's family all lives in Portland and he doesn't think a lot of them would make it. Then there is the whole money issue... Having a wedding is so expensive I'm not sure how I'm supose to pay everything... it can be stressful sometimes. Then I just think of my loving fiance' and say everything is worth it.

I'm getting married on 9/17/11 and just found out that I'm pregnant last week... FREAKING OUT! Our budget was already going to be tight ($5500) now it's going to be almost non existant with all of the baby stuff we've gotta buy. Bye-bye honeymoon, sad day.

Guest September 1, 2010
My biggest fear is I can't find a venue where they aren't trying to control every move that is made. My wedding is 10 months away, I have my dress.......that's about it upset

I just got engaged a month ago. were planning on getting married in April. Were both currently deployed and finding a place to have the wedding and reception is hard. Right now we dont care about the cost. we need aplace to get married and have the reception. What's making it more hard is we want to be able to have an open Bar. Food, decorations, DJ, Invitations, and cake are all taken care of. A place that provides tables and chairs for at least 200people. I'm trying not to panic on this but i need help upset

Our wedding is due to be held sometime within the first week of April, 2011. As you can tell, based on the fact that we've yet to book a venue, we're in the very early stages of the planning proccess. We are hoping for an inexpensive gathering, while upholding a certain magic. Initially, we had planned to wed in Las Vegas, which would have cost us $2500 for the package, which included everything from food, drinks, photography, and wedding and reception hall. We hope to not exceed that limited now that we plan to wed in St. John's, NL. Canada. If anyone has any suggestions on ways to save money, we welcome it. Thanks!

I am not getting married until next year but my biggest worry right now is securing the venue. I am getting married in Houston, TX and I hear that September is a popular wedding month. Why does this have to be sooo difficult and why is everything costing an arm and leg. It's like they want you to go in debt to get married. I don't see how that is going to make the start of a new life happy to know you're paying for it for years if you charge it...

Hello. Both dresses are beautiful. What kind of wedding are you having? formal? semi-formal? What time are you getting married? just think of those questions when picking the dress.

The first dress is more formal. So Its great if your have a evening formal Wedding.
The second dress is more fun, its more semi-formal afternoon wedding.

So it all depends what you are looking for in the dresses. They are both wonderful so which ever one you pick it will be beautiful.

Hi everyone! Congrats on all the weddings///! I'm renewing my wedding vows on May 27,2011, it will be our 10 year anniversary. We never actually had a wedding so we want this one to be a little more traditional and we want to be able to invite all of our friends and family this time (approx 100 guests). We have a very small budget around $4K. Is this even possible??? We know that we want an evening wedding, we already have a few things taken care of: officiant (FREE), invitations (I'm making), DJ (I use to work for radio) and we have a photographer (FREE). We want a magical night of a short ceremony and a great celebration afterwards. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tif

Finding a venue that wont take an arm and a leg. I have inquired several places and they want almost $100.00 per person, give me a break! I think a reasonable amount would be around $35.00 per person, but then again thats just me. I'm still looking for a good venue so I can book it, my wedding is next September but this is the biggest and hardest part of it all. Any suggestions out there? I'm looking in the Orlando area or Lake County. Thanks for reading.

My fiance and I are getting married Dec 31st of this year. Yesterday, the individual who was going to marry us, flaked. I'm a little mad about the whole thing, to say the least. Now I have about a month and a half to find someone to marry us. It's in south central PA, so if anyone has any contacts, I'd greatly appreciate the help.
