My wedding date is firm for next year on November 22, 2022. We were interested in a destination wedding with only about an estimate amount of 50 guests, however we had to change our plans due financial issues for a few important family members. So we decided to have a wedding within the states or close to home(Texas), which means we can extend that guest list so more than likely 100-150 depending on if it is within miles of our hometowns(which are 30 mins. away from each other). We have been racking our brains on trying to find a venue in Las Vegas, Texas, Florida, and Colorado area within our budget. However, we have yet to find a simple yet elegant venue for our wedding. I am willing to DIY most of my wedding decorations and even decrease the guest list. Is there such thing as inviting a certain amount to the ceremony and dinner? Then everybody else who just wants to party can come to the reception?? Is there such a thing and would that decrease the price...you think? If you beautiful brides have any tips or advice to pass along through this confusing journey of mine I would love the help. Thank you so much!!!!
