My name is Yanellys, I'm been in a relationship with my fiancee for 10 years, and we have a daughter who is 3 years old, after 10 years he popped the question, and even now with the economic crisis, i couldn't say no.

Now my wedding is planned for June 13th, 2009, and I've been looking at prices but everything looks like a little expensive, and i don't know what to do???? I'm living in Gaithersburg MD, my parents are coming after 6 years without see them from Venezuela to be with us in the wedding, and I would like them to enjoy like me all this. I'll hope you can help me, I was planning my wedding to be like gold color, with white, or maybe like it is almost summer at that time maybe i can add some other colors to it. Please help!!!!!!!!

Hi Yanellys
Congratulations on your engagement! You have 5 months to get ready - plenty of time!

First you need to set your budget, then book your ceremony and reception venue within the budget. Think about local halls and community centers. If you are marrying in a church or chapel that has a hall that would be perfect as you wouldn't have to worry about your guests getting lost.

Keep your theme simple - white and gold is classy and lovely. There may still be some reduced gold Christmas decorations in the shops - see if you can find something that would be perfect for your centerpieces.

Think about your wedding dress, shop around for the best bargains. Ask friends and family to help, they may have items that you can borrow.

Be strict with your numbers, and maybe have your daughter as a flower girl and a best man within your wedding party.

A great way to keep your catering costs down is by having your reception not at meal times as this way you can serve Champagne and Cake, or Afternoon Tea or Cocktails and Canapes. All are becoming more popular as brides look to be more creative with their money.

Have a look around this site to find ways to save money on all aspects of your wedding and drop me a line if you have more specific questions.

Your parents will enjoy the day, they will be so proud to see you looking so happy, don't worry aout them.

Good luck with your plans
