Cheapest Wedding Ever!!!
Posted: Jul 7, 2008 11:56 AM

I have just come from an initial consultation with a bride and her mother, they are planning the cheapest wedding I have ever seen!  (NOT the tackiest, I mean the least expensive.)  The engagement and wedding rings are family heirlooms.  The wedding gown is grandma's. The gentlemen will all wear military dress uniforms or dark suits.  The bridesmaids will wear dresses of their own choosing.  The wedding and reception will be at the family farm.  (Ceremony in a gazebo in the garden, reception in the show barn which has bathrooms, ceiling fans and concrete floors.) The flowers will all come from the neighbor's garden.   The cake is a gift from her aunt.  The table and chairs will be borrowed at no cost from the church.  The groom's uncle is the minister. The music will be ipod hooked up to the barn's sound system. The caterer is the groom's cousin - they are having a hog roast for 200 guests for $300.00 (the hog, itself is a gift - that pays for the rest of the food.) $500 for pop & beer. Gifts for the wedding party and parents as well as favors will run $250.00 Having me do her save-the-date postcards, invitations, reception cards, programs, favor cards and thank you cards, arrange her flowers, set up and tear down, site manage the day of the event is going to cost $500. $1300 for a big, Barbara Bush type wedding.  AMAZING!
Have a blessed day!Cool

Wow, you're doing all that for only $500?

Sounds great. it always pays to know a lot of people and to have good connections so you can get a bargain when need be

But $500? you dont happen to live in Fl can i hire you to do all of that! Hahhaha 


 Lets not all get caught up in our wedding. Remember we should not only be planning for a our wedding but more so we should be planning for  our marriage. More so then fighting over shades of peach, tuxs, cake flavors and only god knows what else. Because the next morning it is over, guests are gone the flowers have died the cake well lets face it 1/2 of it was tossed out. Cinderella is still a maid, the limo is now a pumpkin And there is life to face ok after wild crazy monkey sex for 7 nights straight, lets not kid out selfs there are priorities After its all gone there's still bills to pay and a job to go back to
