On a budget, but want to host the wedding of your dreams? Consider planning your event on a Friday night or an off-season Saturday night. Most venus offer discounts during these times.
If you are planning on assigned seating arrangements- this is a great time to get creative! Instead of table numbers, why not use pictures of family and friends? Do you enjoy traveling?
How about using places you've been to create table names. There are so many different options- have fun with it!
