Budget Savvy Brides: $5K and Under

Las Vegas or Bust.

This will be my second marriage. He was engaged and 4 months away from the wedding when they split. Now WE are getting hitched. Our family already gave us money for our previous weddings, we wont ask again, this ones on us baby. 


We just bought a house in August and needless to say all our savings, money and 7k from his dad has gone into purchase and repairs of the home. We are broke and he doesn't want to wait to tie me down any longer. (really he wants to try to have kids... he thinks he's old.. :p ) 


We are flying to Vegas and going to the Grand Canyon to get married by his cousin. I have no clue what to do for a "Reception" for the 10 or so people that are coming with us. (We invited only close friends and immediate family) 


If you have any ideas or tips on what to do, where to stay (Cheaper the better, but still a nice place) where we can have a nice dinner after the wedding, where to get flowers, anything that would help would be great! 


Thanks so much ladies!

I have never been to either :(  I know that my co-worker told me about package deals for weddings.  He said it included 4 day stay, air fare, and so much to spend in the casino.  I know the one package he was talking about was 5k for 15 people, but I bet there are some way cheaper routes to go, esp if you aren't flying your friends out there.  Good luck with your plans.  I would like to keep up with your planning, for if I get hitched, it is both of our second weddings as well. 


Well, he had a big wedding, I just had a JOP.  At this point I am good with just starting my future with him.

Good Luck! I know how hard it is since my family isn't helping at all and my FH's family is helping with everything! Ugh
