Budget Savvy Brides: $10K and Under

Am I crazy...?

Am I crazy to think I can pull off a wedding of 200+guests for under 10K (the less the better, right!)


I plan to do ALOT of DIY and the wedding is not until NYE 2012 so plenty of time to look for deals. We plan to do appetizers only since it will be a late wedding (wedding to start at 8pm) and do we plan to have some sort of open bar (I know this is a big expense)


So- am I crazy?

Ummm, I don't think you're crazy at all! My wedding will be ~150 guests, and I'm doing it for $7000! :) I think it's possible!

It is definitely possible! You just have to prioritize. Spend your money on what you feel really strongly about. Even if your wedding doesn't have a lot of "stuff", if the "stuff" you DO have is done well, people will be impressed.

Nope it is possible location...location...location and patience in DIY and it will get done :D I pulled off a 9,000 wedding in NYC for 140 guests and I had plenty of left over items so it can be done.
