      Kathy, My husband and I got married a year ago.When I did the guest list it totaled more than 200 people. we could not afford that. We want to buy a house, so we just had achurch ceremony with about 50 close family members and a small cook out at mybrother in laws house.

      the total came to about 1500. that included my dress, my daughter’s dress,flowers for the church, donations for the church, limo, photogragher, drinks and food. I was like a family get together.Everyone was comfortable.I would not change a thing.

      Weddinga expensive. When we got engaged we sat down and worked out a budget and decided on what was important to us. Get together with your daughter, her fiance’ and his parents to discuss what is more important to them.

      Are his parents going to contribute to the wedding? Is your daughter and fiance going to
      contribute?First find out if they are and how much. Then work within that budget.

      If you can’t afford to invite all 150 people, then don’t. We sent out wedding annnoucements to the family that we did not invite and believe me my family wants us to get a house, they weren’t the least bit upset that they didn’t get invited to the wedding. Hope this helps a little…

      Good Luck!
