I just got engaged, and we are planning a short engagment, we are planning on getting married Jan, 1. 2011, in Kenosha WI, on an EXTREMLEY small budget($3000 for the entire wedding, we are paying for it all ourselves)
So I only have about 9 months to plan. We have decided on semi-formal (ball gown and suit) Colors(green and silver), we are going to do all the food/deserts with the help of family and friends... But here are my questions...
1) We are still trying to find a winter venue that is reasonable, any ideas? about 100 people
2) Any tips for a winter wedding... It was never my plan, and I have nto gone to any winter weddings, so please help.
3) I have found lots of great budget tips, i.e. food ourselves, doing our own music, friends who are photographers, friend who is a baker, Crystal boquets instead of real flowers.... any other tips that are not so obvious?
