I was just wondering if anyone had some advice for a REALISTIC Chicago area wedding in the northwest/western suburbs. My mother seems to have the idea that we can get married for the same budget my parents did. 3000 dollars....they got married in 1981. I think 10000 is a bit more realistic but after talking to some of my coworkers they spent upwards of 15k.
I have a very large family and think about 40/70 of them will come which takes up quite a bit of my budget and guest list.
An advice would be great. Or any suggestions on inclusive venues !!
