We only have $2500-$3000 for everything including rings, dress/suit, ceremony and reception for a July wedding. Found a dress at JCPenney for under $80 and will be doing own cake/cupcakes (haven't decided yet). Friend is doing photography (I think). This is a second marriage for me and third for him so we do not need any gifts. Instead we are asking guests to bring side dishes for the reception. We will provide BBQ chix, hamburgers, and hotdogs (Picnic themed in case you didn't guess) and lemonade. Venue for reception will probably be Garfield Park. Problem is ceremony location. We need a place for about 100-150 people. Thinking about just doing in all at park (sunken garden is too expensive) but having a brain freeze on ideas. Any suggestions?
