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.
