We got engaged last year and haven't really discussed wedding planning until one day this week when DF said he wants to get married this late summer/early fall. Yep were planning a wedding in the next 4ish months. So much to do in so little time oh and on a small budget.
Any tips to keep the cost down. We will be inviting about 140 guests. I have no idea how much to budget for a venue. DF wants us to do our own cooking. But idk what? I don't cook much so idk what would be easy/cheap to prepare ahead of time for so many people and warm the day of. I know cakes can be expensive but I seen a cool idea of making a bunch of different cakes. I love to bake and that would be cheap. Plus DF and I have totally different taste when it comes to cake so that would solve that issue.
My current plan is find a venue ASAP from there I'm just browsing craigslist for ideas hoping I don't forget anything. Tips/tricks to wedding planning in general are much appreciated. :)
