Question & Recs

My friend just got engaged, yay her. She has been waiting 7 very long years. Though now she wants to get married in Oct. of this year & she only wants to spend $5,000 for 60 Guests.  Can this be done??? If you have any suggestions it will be awesome, since I am the MOH & helping her w/ the planning.

    Dang you are lucky!! I remember you were just MOH recently!!!
    Rec's depend on how many people, where, feel(out/in door) etc!

    How about doing it in a restaurant off of the beach. She can have the ceremony on the beach.. and then they can walk to somewhere near by. I would also look into venues who offer discounts for sundays... or maybe a sat. brunch wedding? then having an after party at a club later?

    LMAO... Always the MOH never the Bride I use to say. After this one, I will only walk down the aisle in MY DRESS! These BM dresses are getting costly.

    Its hard when you have less then 100 ppl cause most places for sat night have a minimum but you can def do something friday night or saturday morning/afternoon and it is going to be a LOT cheaper. I suggest a resturant too like pp said or somewhere that already includes tables and food at least....HTH :)

    With that budget a Friday/Sunday wedding is the best option. A backyard wedding would be really great or a beach wedding with the reception at a restaurant.

    The other option would be to not have a dinner reception and instead do a brunch reception or afternoon wedding with cocktail reception. Giving people a whole meal is definitely the most expensive option.

    You girls just got me thinking...I can offer her my house to for the Reception. I originally wanted to do my wedding @ my hm & I can certainly accomadate 60guest function, considering I had 150 at my sons 1st Birthday. Woo Hoo
    Most definitely have to run the idea by her.
