My SO and I are both students getting married while still in school and on a budget of 1k total for the reception (yikes!). To keep costs down we're doing a lot of DIY, having a very intimate reception, and self catering.
Does anyone know of a outdoor location that's in or close to STL, isn't very expensive, and will allow self catering? Some ideas we've had are state parks and county parks but I'm afraid that would seem tacky or too cheap. I would like to preserve some air of elegance. We would like a garden or foresty feel for our medieval themed weddding.
We would have loved a backyard wedding but neither of us have access to a backyard large enough.
Please list rental fees if you know them
