I'm new to the boards and you all seem like a well informed group!
My fiance and I are planning a May 2011 wedding, but since we're paying for the wedding outselves the budget is pretty tight. He doesn't want to spend more than $3,000, but we're looking at almost $4,300 right now. We plan on having the wedding at Edson Hill Manor (any positive or negative reviews?), and are doing things like the flowers, music, and photography ourselves. Do any of ya'll have any other cost cutting tips?
Also just a shot in the dark, but have any of you ever had your wedding/reception in a State Park? My fiance is a ranger, and this was one of the possibilites. I was wondering if it saved any money and if you had a good experience?
Thanks so much in advance!
