Where to begin?! Budget ideas!
I am newly engaged (just over a week) and new to the forum.
We are considering our wedding date as 03/03/2018 as 03/03 was when we first met.
However we will have a fairly low budget for our wedding. Not wanting to spend more than £5000.
We live in Dorset. So any fellow Dorset brides to be with any ideas and tips?
At the moment I think we have possibly 90 guests that we would want to invite to the ceremony and reception but I think it would be possible to cut this number to 70 at the risk of upsetting my mum though. However taking number of guests probably up to 120 in the evening.
What does everyone think? Am I dreaming thinking that it might be possible to have this many guests on a £5000 budget?
Planning to have ceremony in church local to my parents which I think costs of church plus church heating and organist is likely to be about £700. Then considered hiring a village hall and doimg DIY decorations but then I wonder if the cost of catering and a bar on top would make the cost just as much as a package deal? Any experience of this?
Any advice/ideas/suggestions/tips greatly appreciated as not sure where to start.
Thanks in advance. :-)
