Can I do it???
Rings, brides maids dress, table decorations and cheif don't need to be included. We have my rings and DF's wont cost much to get any time, brides maid is making her dress and already has the fabric, already have table deco's and a friends hubby has said he'll man the BBQ and they'll both help organising food.
I am obviously going to ring around and find the best prices in my area, but just thought i'd ask some questions anyway...
Is there much price difference between a celebrant and minister/church?
Did you have a backyard reception? How did you make it more than an "aussie BBQ?"? I want it a bit fancy. I had thought i'd go to the local butcher and ask him to make up a nice meat package, get some platters made up...
We haven't figured out how many people will be invited, but so far I only have 8 on my list 12 including their children! I'm figuring around 30-40 give or take...
Other things i've thought about that need organising, please add anything I may have missed-
~Dress, hair & make-up (have a friend who'll do make-up cheap, won't let her do it for nothing)
~Invites (making them myself)
~Order of service (will make myself)
~Music (already picked what I want got it all on cd)
~Celebrant or minister/church
~Photographer (DF's relo=free$$$)
~Cake (friend will make)
Basically I just want to know how your wedding on a budget worked out?
