Hi! My fiance and I got engaged January 5, 2015 and our wedding is August 2 (so basically less than 7 months to plan everything!). I have a $15,000 budget from my parents (I'm paying) that includes venue, decor, food/beverage, beauty, attire, etc. This is what I have so far:
Officiant- $0 (pastor of my church)
Hair/Makeup- $100 (friend of mine; I'm buying the makeup)
Stationary- $400 (Costco!)
Dress- $900 (custom making with a seamstress I know personally)
Transportation- $0 (if ceremony and reception are in the same place)
Since me fiance lives oversees at the moment, I'm making all the decision. I've looked at basically every venue in metro Atlanta online, and I'm so indecisive! Help! I live in Buford, GA, so NE of Atlanta. I'd be willing to drive up to an hour for the wedding, and our wedding will be on a Sunday. We do not consume alcohol, nor need a DJ. Do you know of a venue? Had a wedding, been to a wedding, took a tour of a place that is nice and within my budget (around $10,000 for venue+food)? Please let me know
Thanks in advance!
