Hello to all my weddingwire friends! I am inquiring to this community to see if anyone had any ideas on how to have a very elegant wedding on a budget. Our current budget is 15,000, and we want to have a "rose gold" theme. Does anyone know how I can save and also create a very elegant atmosphere? I was told that typical weddings range between 25,000-50,000 if not more. I have found a venue that is affordable but it appears that the biggest expenses will come from the catering and decorations. How do I stick with this budget and still have the wedding of my dreams! Is 15,000 a reasonable budget? What are the steps I should take to being able to have a successful wedding!
