We'll Make It Work

[insert huge sigh of relief]

We have booked a date (July 18-20, 2008), a location for the ceremony (Meeker Park Lodge), a location for the reception (Sunshine Mountain Inn), and we have a plan for catering (we're going to do it ourselves with the help of the B&B owners at the reception site, as well as our good-natured friends).

The whole thing is very DIY, very budget, and a little ambitious, but we'll make it work. We always do.

Good for you! Troy and I tried to buck the system too. I thought about it and we did our own invitations, had an aunt and mom do cakes, friends do music and pictures, dad do the ceremony and my mom paid for the food. With her costs and ours (my dress was $800.00 *ouch* and his ring was $150) our wedding was around $5,000. Unfortunately, $2,500 was on food. (Mom went overboard but it was her money and I didn't care.) Troy has officiated three weddings in the last year and it was ridiculous some of the stuff the bride thought she "had" to have. Good luck and I cannot wait to help you celebrate your special day.
