      I'm thinking it's very do-able.  We are getting married at the Moon Palace.

      Out room will cost about $2,000 which is the largest amount.

      I have been looking for cheaper plane tickets...they are going to cost us around $800.  I refuse to pay more...hoping to get less.  (we're from NY)

      We are doing the symbolic, complementary ceremony.

      We are going to do the ipod dock at the reception that's about $275.

      That leaves us with $2,000 for photos decor, etc.

      I"m praying it'll all work out!!!

        It sounds like it's possible, I feel the same way! You will have to keep us updated and I will do the same :)

          Wish I would have found this thread sooner... I've been somewhat frugal :) Great suggestions!

              I couldn't have said it better myself! And...I see my date is the day before yours :) congrats!

               

              Though I hear it flies by, we definitely have time to shop around and get creative!

              I've started to worry about our budget but you are absolutely right.. I still have 11 months to go and plenty of time to be both creative and cautious of spending:)

                I am just like this! I keep trying to remind myself to just say thank you but I always feel like I should brag ;-)

                  J-ME-- I have yet to find a twin date on the forum.. You're the closest:)

                   

                  We wanted the 21st because its a Saturday and our guests could just leave the day after to get back home for work, school, etc.. But the 22nd is our anniversary so we really wanted to keep that date.. It's too special to us..

                   

                  How it the planning going so far.. I'm just getting all the STD's ready..

                    Vista Print, Vista Print, Vista Print... I also was able to do my invites for the wedding myself and made my own RSVP postcard, cheaper postage!
