I feel so out of place in most of these forums. I'm looking for my tribe to discuss planning ideas. I'm not so concerned about typical wedding things or what the majority considers the right way to do things. I feel like you know your own friends and family and my what is acceptable in your circle....

This is a second marriage. We're in our 40s. We're planning something small, outdoors, with Pagan elements... Less than 50 guests... extremely small budget.
Anyone in the same mindset and want to share ideas? Feel free to say hello!
I'm getting married at a restaurant. They don't nickel and dime you there either. We just just have to meet the food and drink minimum which is lower than the venue/reception fees alone at wedding venues. Honestly, you add the word wedding in a sentence and they tack on more money. I am having everyone seated at their table, walking down the aisle and then we are going into dinner. Just remember you don't have to break the budget, and you don't have to follow any rules you don't like or see fit. I would get wrapped up reading things and seeing things and start adding things to my wedding and then I started to get miserable, and my fiance had to remind me of my original vision. Now I am back to reality. I care about marrying him and that's that.
Facebook mom groups lol. People are always hiring semi pro photographers for family photos and stuff. So I reached out to a few of them to see if they would work with me. I have no complaints about our photos but I also had very realistic expectations.
So, next Sunday, Chris and I are going to look at a venue that is so fitting for us. It's a camp. 5 cabins, a dining hall, an outdoor cathedral, a pavilion with a fire pit...$650 for the entire weekend. Oh, and we pushed back our date a year.

Oh sounds cool! We were originally planning for Fall 2023 but then we decided to get married at our house next year but now I’m starting to think that going with a venue (and professionals) might be better! So we might be looking at 2023 again too. 🤷🏻♀️

It was good. It is a bit run down because it was gifted to a girl scout camp for 100 years and it is about at year 95. They don't put a whole lot of money into it because they're not going to get to keep it. However, for us being completely non-traditional and wanting something unique and small, this could be perfect. We had thought we wanted to get married outside but being up there yesterday and knowing how cold it was and hiking up the hill to get to the outdoor cathedral, we think that we may choose to do the ceremony in front of this working fireplace instead.
