I need help on planning a wedding for under 2000 dollars in Cincinnati
by tia duncan
Hi I am getting married in 9 months and have a budget of 2000 dollars we found a reasonable church however cannot find a place for the reception.
We want to invite 100 people and would like to have the reception inside if possible.
Please help with ideas for flowers and decorations as well i am really lost and have no help I am open to all ideas.
Congratulations on your engagement and also for finding a church that you like and that is within your budget.
To find a venue to hold your numbers you will need to be creative, move away from typical wedding reception venues - they will charge more than your budget and instead look at any venue that will hold your numbers.
Have you asked at the church, do they have a hall?
Is there a local community hall that you could hire.
Do any of your friends or family have contacts with schools, colleges, clubs - anywhere that is big enough? Or does anyone have enough space in their backyard?
Can you use your local park? A number of parks will let you hold your wedding recepion within their grounds - and you would save yourself a fortune on decorations!
Think about your flowers and decorations once you have your venue as you may find that you won't need to decorate as much.
Cheaper flowers such as carnations and daisies can look stunning if you tie them in tight bouquets, equally as stunning is one single stem of a stunning flower.
Have a look at ways to have a cheap wedding reception you can save yourself lots of money by being creative.
Good luck with all of your plans.
