budget wedding of 1500.00

I am trying to budget a wedding on $1500.00.  I am not a really fancy person..  i want something small, just family..  not having to have all the traditional things.  There will be about 100 total people that is inicluding kids and adults.  I havent really set a date, trying to find out the best place for the buck and then go from there.  My husband and i got married in the courthouse and now he asked if i would renew our vows and have a small wedding..  if the cost goes over a little thats fine, i am paying cash as we go..  any ideas where to start or any beautiful locations that are cost efficient..

    I'd suggest County or City owned buildings. They have great parks or community centers that are really low budget! I'd suggest having the ceremony & reception at the same location to cut costs too.

    Pavillions at State Parks are nice too, and very affordable.

    look into local fire halls too... usually they are pretty inexpensive, and some can be really niceSmile

    Parks, fire halls, American Legions, etc are your best bet.  Just don't forget about some hidden costs like renting chairs or tents if outside.

    Here is a list of Omaha halls:

    A big area to save on is food.  You could do a simple cake and punch reception.  Just don't have the time be around meal time.  An evening reception could be fun.


    I'm assuming all of your guests know you are married (they should), so call it a vow renewal as you already had your wedding.

    Let us know if you want suggestions for other vendors!

    Since you are not tied to a specific date, try to stay out of peak wedding season, May-August. A lot of vendors offer discounts for out of season receptions. Have fun and good luck!
