budget reception

I am planning to get married at the Heisler Park gazebo in Laguna Beach. I need some ideas for a reception afterwards. I have a budget of 1500.

Re: budget reception

  • Look at the community centers in the neighboring cities. They tend to have a lower cost then the hotels and banquet halls. We're getting married in Mission Viejo at the community center there and having our reception at the same site. One of the other place we looked at was in Dana Point, I think it's the surf and sand rec center of something like that. Both were very affordable rental locations. Or find a friend with a big backyard.

    Are you having your reception at the gazebo? How many guests are you having? I would suggest that you have your reception at a non-meal time and just do cake and punch. Maybe a few light appetizers. If it fits in the budget, maybe do sandwiches.

    Are you looking for decoration ideas or food ideas? The more info you provide, the better the ideas we can come up with! Laughing

    ETA: Just looked up pictures of your location and its beautiful!!!
