Hello! I am a newly engaged lady who is feeling so very discouraged and I could just use some reassurance or help. My friends try to help but it just keeps failing.
I have been with my fiance since we were teenagers. We are two of the most laid back people you will ever meet. We want a simple, cute, rusticy wedding. We are doing a lot ourselves, growing our own flowers, making our own centerpieces, etc.
Our budget is as follows
We have everything else taken care of. We have NO financial help from families because neither one of our families is able to afford to help. Our guest list is about 100 people because we both come from large families.
I just cannot seem to find a venue that we can afford. I have found a caterer, Belmont Hall, which meets our budget. The problem is finding a place to have it...ideally we would want the venue to include a cash bar.
Anyone out there who has had a similar budget to ours?! Every single person I ask for help has responded to me with places that are out of our budget. I broke down in tears today because I am starting to feel like our wedding is unattainable. We aren't asking for a lot, just somewhere within our budget that isn't completely run down.
