How do I plan an inexpensive desination wedding at a park site?

I have a guest list of 100 people wedding budget of 5000.oo dollars I want it outside, I am having a dilemma with decorations and reception clean-up. Color scheme is also dilemma. This is my first wedding. I am 41. Is it appropriate to wear diamond white wedding dress?


First you need to find your venue, you haven't said where you are wanting to get married so I can't give any specifics but a good place to start is by finding all outdoors locations in the town that are available for a wedding ceremony. Speak to the local authority re public places.

When you have decided on your venue you will need to think about catering, they will normally include the clean up in the price - but double check if you are unsure. A picnic is a fun outdoors wedding meal and means that everyone is more relaxed.

Decorations, if it is outdoors I would keep the colors simple, you will already have the background of the park so all you need are your own flowers and those of any bridesmaids.

Diamond white wedding dresses are beautiful but can be unforgiving - grass stains on the hem of the dress can be hidden with chalk - so make sure one of your guests has some in their purse!

Have a great day

As a bride who had an under $1000 wedding and reception, my best advice is to shop around. It may take a little bit more time and energy, but it is worth it. There's always somewhere that has something you want for a lesser price.
