Planning a Wedding and Reception on $3000 or Less?

I'm planning my wedding for 3/14/2015 and I'm way behind and I don't know what to do. We have a budget of $2500.00-$3000.00 with 50 guests. I going to use I recreation center and make almost everything to save money. I'm so lost, please help. I want to decorate and feed all my guest without breaking the bank since we need to live after the wedding. I'm thinking elegant with columns and drapery. My colors are mint green and teal.

Tissue paper flowers are super easy to make and inexpensive. Make big ones and hang them from the ceiling.

I made all my boutonniere's and corsages with silk flowers and floral tape. I made my cake topper with a flat rounded Styrofoam piece, two Styrofoam bells, two white doves- I hot glued lace to all the Styrofoam, and hot glued birds and silk flowers on.


Do you have relatives or friends who could deejay or make a cake or do photography? Perhaps one of them has a decorative flair and could help you with decorating plans.

Live on the internet... check Pinterest, there are literally hundreds of simple and inexpensive ideas. Nobody is going to care if you don't spend thousands of dollars you don't have. Go on and make an account, ask people for what you need, or check your local craigslist under Free. You would be surprised what people get rid of... after their weddings. Good luck!
