I am a college student that is going to marry the love of my life who just recently graduated grad school. We are both from the Bay area and want to get married close by but we are open to Sf, Walnut Creek, Livermore etc.
We are planning on having no more than 100 guests and my dream has always been to get married outside (maybe a winery) and have the reception at the same location indoors. We want to have a great time at our wedding with lots of dancing and great food. Our wedding date is open but I am hoping for Memorial Day weekend in 2012. (we will be getting married on a Sunday)
The biggest problem is budget. We plan to pay for most of it with help from my parents so the cheaper the better! I don't want to say an exact amount because I have no idea how much weddings cost!
Any suggestions will be good suggestions!
One thing is we do not want to get married at a community center or a park (i know those are the cheapest) but we have attended many weddings at those types of locations and really want something unique and elegant!
