- May 15, 2007 at 5:41 pm #251917GuestPossible Tips for cheap wedding:
1.Have a triple wedding (this has been suggested by at least one other)
2. Get white prom dresses or white bridesmaid dresses instead of a wedding dress.
3. Have a cookout at a park and have everyone bring something to pass (downside of this is what are you going to do if it rains)
4. Have a family member take the pictures/videos. This works best if you have a family member that loves photography as a hobby and they would have fun doing this.
5. Research prices like crazy! Most places around here charged $25 a head when I got married.
The place I had found had a wonderful buffet at only about $14 a head. It is worth it to research. My DJ was only $500 for the night, did a great job, where most of the other places were $700 and up, with a couple that were $600.
I live in Wisconsin, not PA, so I don’t think giving you contacts from here would do much good.
6. Have they thought about eloping and having a cheap reception when they got back?
7. Make your girls pay for their own weddings…my mom didnt pay for any of mine….I paid for my whole wedding and part of my college myself. Well, husband paid part of wedidng expenses and most of my college was funded by the state, but my point is my parents didn’t pay for any of it.
I think my dad may have paid for the beer at the reception and other than that we paid it all ourselves..
