    Hi! I'm from Georgia; so I understand the difficulty of pulling off a budget wedding in the area (that isn't redneck-y). I debated b/w a local wedding and a destination wedding for a long time, and it just came down to this: a destination wedding was just SOOO much cheaper! I'm doing my whole wedding plus honeymoon for about $10,000 for 35 guests; SO much less than if I was doing it in Georgia. As for quick flights (which usually mean cheaper flights), places to look at include the Dominican Republic, St. Thomas, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, and the Bahamas. I'm unfamiliar with Moon Dance Cliffs, however. Where is that located?

              You will find so much information here that will help you stay within budget. I definitely think a destination wedding is cheaper, not to mention it can double as your honeymoon. Even if you could stay within budget at home, you would still have to consider costs for a honeymoon or forego the honeymoon, and who wants to do that?? haha. Good luck, you will get inspired here, promise!

                  I am not sure if you have already decided on a venue-but I am getting married at Moon Dance CLiffs. I haven't been there, but from what I have read, and seen in pictures, it looks like it will be a beautiful place once finished. MDC is a bit more expensive than ohter resorts (RIU, Sandals, etc). But wherever you pick, you can DIY alot of things. Have you also looked into Mexico, or stateside- FLorida, or Tybee Island?
