  • We rented an old civil war era church that had been restored and is owned by the preservation society, and got married there. After that we had photos for about an hour, and our reception was 2 hours after the wedding at a nice restaurant. We knew the owners and he rented us the banquet hall for next to nothing, and allowed us to have a limited menu so I had some control over the total cost of the bill.

  • My mom's house...which has been passed down through the family. It was built in 1826 and is one of those old southern homes with the white columns. My DH and I hope to have that as our home one day.

  • We got married in a church and our reception was at a golf course country club in the Poconos. It rained the entire day not just a little rain but hurrican type of rain. We picked the place because pictures would have been beautiful outside, but the only picture we got outide were under an umbrella. We still had an awesome reception though.

  • I used a venue that does nothing but weddings. I did my ceremony and reception in the same place (saved a lot of money there) Plus, as I said in my other post, doing a wedding at a site that mostly does weddings not during "wedding season" will save a lot because they will probably be willing to negotiate prices to get you to book your wedding with them
