getting married in 2011 and need ideas on cheap hall rentals in skowhegan maine any ideas
If you want to save on your wedding, choose a non-Saturday to have your event. Most every vendor will offer a discount, though you may have to ask for the discount.
Define what it is that is important to you two. Flowers? A particular band? Photos for the kids/grandkids to look at in 30 years?
Think long term. What will be important to you 20 years from now? Will it be worth it 20 years from now that you were able to add 20-50 guests, but now have crappy photos?
Ask your vendors if they have a wedding registration? You will have guests who will ask, "What do you all really need?" Wouldn't it be great if you could say, "My (X- vendor) has a gift registration, and it would really be a blessing to us if you could give to that vendor." Even if your vendor doesn't have a gift registry, they may want to start one after you ask for it.

Want to save money
where are you located? I am in Oklahoma and I just got married in August and our venue sounds like what you are looking for
Most any wedding vendor will give you a discount if:
1. The wedding is not on a Saturday.
2. The wedding date is a few weeks to a month or so out.
3. You ask for the discount.

Would it be a good idea to get a <a href="http://www.ryelimousineservice.com">limo service</a> for the bride and groom? I want it to be a good experience, but sometimes that can get expensive. Anyone recommend one way or the other?
I just recently got engaged with a wedding date for oct 31, 2012. unfortunately my fiance's family is enormous and even if we didn't invite half of them, they'd still show up. i don't want our wedding to turn into an episode of "cops" so we're simply planning to accomadate a huge reception. we're getting plenty of help from family including the cake, cooking/food (what do you think of a "tour of italy" with salad? i love italian food!), plenty of family who have volunteered to be DJs, and finanacial help with my dress. pretty much the largest expenses my fiance and i have to pay for is the rings, venue, and photographer. am i missing anything? and what do you guys think?
I agree thats the cheapes most affordable way to do it. HoweveT, My sister got married at a close venue club in her town it was only 50 dollars. She only had close friends and family there about... 30 people there it was nice to know everyone!!! everyone brought food just like a potluck. They had there cake made cheap and we all pitched to decorate the hall.Also, her and her husband downloaded there own music on to the laptop and everyone pitched in to downloaded or uploaded there music of choice. She hired a minister justice of the peace to marry them, also had other to take pictures and video tape the whole reception. Her budget wa super cheap spent most of the money on rings.
If you can't find any place local, try 1800flowers.com. I've used them for many long-distance flowers and arrangements for gifts, and they've been great. You can also order wedding flowers online. Check them out....
The first step to finding a place would be to determine a rough idea of the guest count. Many venues can be eliminated based on capacity. The 2nd way to cut cost would be to consider a Friday wedding. You'll be pleasantly surprised to see just how many places are still available for a 2011 wedding if it is on a Friday. Also most places don't charge a hall charge in addition to catering if you choose a Friday. Try and look for places that provide the hall and catering in one, since that will usually save you $ as opposed to bringing in outside caterers, unless you already have a cheap caterer in mind.
If you're still having a hard time locating a venue, try searching for caters, and then look at locations they usually cater in. This can also help out.
Let me know the date of your wedding and where you are located. I may be able to help you with my studio.
I'm haveing a hard time finding a location that is in my buget but is also not frumpy. I;m looking for a place in or near granite cityIl
Looking for a Hall for 180 people in St Charles Il or close by.
you could try a firehall. use their social hall and do the ceremony there as well. saves on money, people getting from place to place.
Outdoors weddings: Big Advice---if you are on a budget, you are flirting with disaster; because not only will you need to pay expenses for outdoors, you'll also need to pay expenses for an indoors alternative in case of rain, or an extremely large tent with walls. You'd be better off just staying indoors.
I'm a wedding musician (solo violin & trio/quartet) so I've played a lot of weddings of all budgets---my best advice for a low-budget wedding is to 1) use lots of reliable volunteer help (sew your own dresses, make decorations, cook your own food) and 2) locate both the ceremony and reception at a church--there are indeed many that are not "preachy", for example the Unitarian Universalist tolerate nearly every belief system. Most houses of worship will have some type of fellowship hall or gathering space, and will allow you to bring in your own food. Yes there are some churches that have stricter requirements, just keep searching for one that isn't so picky. Also you'll likely not have rigid time restrictions either, so you can have your family show up extra early to do your own decorations. You may have to hire their janitors (or maybe not), and purchase Event Insurance for $100-$200, but the savings you'll realize by doing your own decoration & food will easily cover that. For the music---unless you have a relative who is REALLY GOOD, of course, I would suggest you go with a professional, who will be happy to work for in the $200 range.
Anyone know of a nice place in Mt. Pleasant or Shephrd Mi. to get married? The bride is looking for outside and dosnt have alot of money
