I'm looking for venues around OKC (indoor) for a one room wedding and reception for about 100 guests for under $1000. (Actually the space will need to hold about 150-200 so there's room for dancing and mingling after the wedding although there will only be about 100 in attendance)
We are doing things a touch differently. We are actually going to the courhouse on 3.14.2014 so our actual anniversary will be on Pi (3.14.....) This is very luckily on a Friday. So the following day we will exchange our vows and rings and celebrate with our family.
We are also putting ourselves on a shoestring budget. $5000 for EVERYTHING! Vintage Irish theme
- We aren't having flowers. It seems like a lot of money to us for something that will die a few days after we pay for them. I'm in the embroidery industry as work and am making tulle flowers. I have a year and got all the fabric by scouring goodwill for garments I can destroy and buttons I can thieve. I'm making my own bouquet with origami book pages and crystal brooches. (It sounds weird but it's cute...)
- We are looking at doing the wedding around noon and inviting our guests (about 100) to a baked potato luncheon afterward. Cost effective, potatoes fit with the theme and its fun!
- We will be serving pie instead of cake. Not only due to the date but neither my FH nor I actually like cake...
So we can save a bit from those places. However I'm having a devil of a time finding a place to put it. Currently my front runner is the Midwest City Community Center and its close enough to 1000 but its not very pretty.Beggers can't be choosers but I've still got a bit more time to beg before I settle. Any suggestions?
