Just got engaged and getting married this Aug, 13th, 2011. We are planning the ceremony and the reception at the Embassy Suites in Tiffany Springs. I'm planning on a Black and White/Ivory Ceremony. With 2 or 3 in the bridal Pary, I'm planning on spending no more than $500 on my dress. We are planning on a wedding of about 150 people. We are using complete music for the DJ and the Photography. I'd like to keep everything under 10,000 total and with everything I don't know how to keep the floral costs down, but my flowers are going to be tulips and outside of spring they tend to be a bit higher. I was thinking silk flowers for everything, but the bouquets and boutiers. Does anyone have any ideas? These are the only "color" going to be at the wedding everything else will be decorated in black with white/ivory accents. My dress will be the only white/ivory thing in mass at the wedding except maybe the cake. HELP!
