His mom has also volunteered to help us out with the bill for this (yay) ! Hopefully we'll have a more solid price soon...

    wow three times.. keep fingers crossed that his mom will help

We are planning to stock up on alcohol at Costco or BevMo and FI has some bartender friends that we could enlist to help out with mixing drinks for a reasonable cost. Then we're planning just to have passed apps, cupcakes and a small cake to cut, an iPod playlist for music, and a slideshow of wedding pics going. I'm hoping we can do it all for $7500.

      wow just for the venue steep..hope you can do it all for the $7500 I want to do a slideshow too.

      We are definitely thinking of having an AHR, but most likely will be a cookout or something informal, need to keep costs low, since after the wedding we will be saving for our house!!!! My niece had one when she returned from Mexico, and showed all her pics set to music on dvd for those that couldnt attend. It was a lot of fun, and very casual!

      Now Larimar 8/9/13; I married my best friend! 29 of my closest friends and family celebrated with us! Couldn't have wished for anything better :)
