Hi, So what do you need to have that will make your day feel special? A nice place? A pretty dress? Family and friends around you? Start there and then really cut the crap out of everything else.

How many people and what is your vision? Do you want to go with traditional or throw tradition out the window? Give us an idea of what you are looking for and we'll go from there :-).

Family and friends at someones house. Right before Thanksgiving dinner say your vows, in a great dress that you like and can afford. Or at a great (favorite) restaurant with same scenario.

For 50 people, I think you might have a hard time...you're basically allotting eight dollars/person. I think you'd be better off having a small, quiet civil ceremony at your local town hall and then maybe a nice dinner afterward with 10-15 guests. That's my honest opinion.

I would say to do what the ladies suggested before when you posted-just have a cake and punch reception. Since it's Thanksgiving people will already have had a huge meal.

I would just do a traditional dinner buffet since it's Thanksgiving. Just stick with ham, turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, corn and green beans, and rolls. All of that can easily be done yourselves with a willing family member willing to make sure everything stays filled up. Or if you want you could also make it a potluck and ask people to bring a dish to pass. Where are you planning on having the reception? I would look into local VFW halls or fire departments. I know around here some of the fire departments have spaces that they rent out for way cheap.

Who usually hosts Thanksgiving dinner in your family? Would they be able to host your wedding? Maybe you could do your ceremony and then dinner could be your reception. I would keep the smaller version of 10-15 people.

have you accounted for having someone marry you on a holiday? if you find a judge to do it, that may be your entire $400. I would do it early morning and do cake and punch, then people can head off to their thanksgiving lunches/dinners for a meal.

I wouldnt sweat the small stuff like center pieces with a tight budget. I think I agree with having the ceremony then maybe having thanksgiving dinner be your reception at an inexpensive venue or at a family members house.

if you are having only 10-15 people maybe you could give them the date but explain that its possible it could change? If its close friends and family they should be understanding
