Help Planning A Wedding On $2000

I need help planning my wedding.

So far I have the theme as winter wonderland and my colors are blue white and silver.

I plan on making the invitations myself. We have roughly about 100 guest including the children.

We plan on having 3 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen. Any help with the planning would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Kelly

Hi Kelly

Thanks for getting in touch and sharing your wedding plans so far.

You don't mention whether you have set a date or booked a venue for your ceremony or reception. If you haven't then you need to find one that will hold the number of guests.

Try and find a venue that you can take your own catering to save on costs and maybe look at having an afternoon reception so you don't have to cater for 100 guests for a sit down meal. Or you could have a cocktails and canapes evening reception if that is more your style!

Having a $2000 wedding is possible you will however need to be very careful with your money and make sure you don't over spend.

Start by making a list of everything you want and need at your wedding, don't forget things like licences, rings, costs for the officiant, your wedding dress, dresses for the bridesmaids, suits for your groom and groomsmen, flowers, invitations, cake, transport, entertainment, photographer, wedding cake, decorations. And then you have the big stuff too; ceremony, venue, food and drink for your guests.

Your biggest expenses will be; the reception venue, the food, the dresses and suits.

When you have your list you will then need to start putting prices against each item, talk with local companies and have a look around my site to get the cheaper ways of doing things.

Once you have all of the prices you can decide on whether you need everything on your list if the costs have gone over the $2000. You may need to reduce down numbers or have a more relaxed reception in your own backyard to compensate for the numbers.

Let me know if you need any more information on specific items and I will try and help!

Best wishes

Suz
