Hi all!! I’m super new to the planning stages of our wedding, my fiancé is active duty Army and is getting deployed next year, we won’t be having the reception until he gets back in 2020 so in theory we have plenty of time but we want a lot of the decisions to be made together before he is gone, therefore we are on a mad hunt for venues!! I know venues are expensive but I’d love to hear from brides who are on a budget, we are fortunate to have our families helping a lot but morally I don’t want to spend 20K on just the venue!! Any suggestions are welcome I’m slightly panicking over venue prices!!
