Hi I'm new here and recently engaged. My FI and I are paying for and planning the wedding all on our own, and honestly, don't have a ton of experience with it. We have a modest budget of about 10,000 for everything a bit more, but just being safe. I'm trying to find either an all-inclusive ( minus cake and flowers etc) venue for the ceremony/food/alcohol/reception/anything else, or a combination that will still be within budget. I've been searching over a month and haven't been able to locate even one of any vendor I could afford. We want a formal, classy look, but not extravagant ie: I want to wear the big dress, but I'm ok with simple classy food, but not cool with sandals and mac n cheese. Anyone care to make a few suggestions? I have a while to get things together, but I'm a big list maker/planner, and can't seem to rest easy until I have a game plan in my mind! Thanks ahead of time!
