£2000 budget, suggestions?
So I'm getting married sometime next year, and we don't have much money (as we're saving for a new house too) and I've seen a couple of articles on how to do it.
I've got an idea to borrow everyone's fairy lights to deck out the village hall, I'll design and print our own invites, menus, RSVPs, etc, I'm having a simple buffet for dinner (Children are having their own seperate buffet table to a) save money and b) it'll be food they'll like, mini pizzas, etc) and I'm buying all the drinks from Costco and the like. The H2B is happy, he's getting a lot of input (he wanted a simple wedding as much as I did). Depending on how much we have left in out budget (probably looking at £700) I'll make my own cake, as I've done some semi-professionally.
I've got one bridesmaid and a bridesman, and I've told them to turn up in what they like, on the conditions it is a) smart and b) won't clash with blue and c) isn't jeans or tshirts. Any other suggestions for saving money for dresses, flowers, centrepieces? We're having around 70-80 people there (his side of the family is huge, and we didn't want to exclude children.) Thanks!
