Hi Fellow Knotties (?? is that a term??)
I'm kind of at my wits end and hoping someone can help. We got engaged in May, hoping to have a May 2016 wedding, but we are struggling to find a venue. I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm just too broke for a wedding (how is 10 THOUSAND dollars not enough money?! To me that's a LOT!)
To save costs we've decided to keep it all in one place (ceremony/reception) to avoid traveling costs; we've cut flowers and centerpieces...we've cut the guest list...repeatedly...we've cut the DJ (chose to play an iPod instead). My dress is purchased and NOT coming out of the 10K budget. Yet STILL we are unable to find a venue. Do we need to cut alcohol? Do we need to cut food?? Are we fooling ourselves? Is it even possible to throw a wedding in or around Pgh with a budget of 10K? We don't have any more funds and taking a loan is just not an option.
Help! I'm open to any and all ideas/suggestions. Any help is appreciated! I'm ready to throw in the towel and admit defeat. Its just killing me that I may not have a wedding because 10 THOUSAND dollars isn't enough money...
