If your looking for a reception hall. I recommend a local military like hall. In Canada we have The Royal Canadian Legion. We also have a Lions Club and RCAF (Royal Canadian Air Force) They all have halls to rent. Usually cheep. They are all forms of halls run by military or something like that groups. You do not have to be a member to use them.
We used the Legion for our wedding reception. It was $250 I believe for a hall that can hold 300 people.
Just a thought.
We were going for as cheep but nice looking as possible.

I know exactly what you're talking about but for the life of me I can't remember the actual term for that kind of place. I't makes searching on Google impossible. If I can find something like that for the same rate, I'd actually have more money in my budget to use on things like decorations and favors.

We found a ceremony site we are really liking. We'll probably be going to visit it in a few weeks to see if it really is like in the picture. http://www.washingtonmarketpark.org/gazebo/

I'm just trying to figure out how you arrange people around a gazebo. We're given 4 chairs (which'll be for both of our grandparents), and we're contemplating letting the rest sit around the gazebo on picnic blankets (we say a little performance there where people say around the gazebo on the ground).


If the gazebo is indeed just as nice as it looks, it knocks off a really frustrating part of this planning, as it's impossible to find a cheap place in New York for have a wedding ceremony!

Red and black nerd wedding?  Sounds awesome!  I look forwards to reading more about it!

Do you know what you're going to do for the cake?

The fiance actually explicitly said he wanted tons of cupcakes, with a small cake for just the two of us. I'll probably pay my younger brother to do it, as he is going to school for pastry arts (and I said I'd vouch for him for extra credit from his teachers  Tongue)


Something like this maybe.

I wanted the personal cake to be this (we had purchased a Big Top cupcake mold a few years ago). I also want to do similar cake toppers.

I'm trying to search out venues. I really don't care where the thing is, so long as it's on the cheaper side and I can decorate ^^ But that seems to be harder said than done.

Hi everyone! I don't post here super often, I'm more of lurker on Craftster.

My boyfriend proposed to me on February 26 after going out for almost a year. He got me this awesome ring, and was cool enough to listen to my qualms about not wanting an expensive one (I really don't like costly things, they bother me).


We are really trying to aim for May of next year, but it all depends on if we can get the money. I'm not trying to blow a whole bunch on it, because again I just don't like expensive things. If financially we can't bear it next year, we're going to aim for the year after.

The theme we wanted for our wedding is something that reflects us, but also those we grew up with/raised us. We both come from nerdy backgrounds, he is a complete gamer (along with all his friends) and I'm a comic book nerd. We both dabble in the other's hobby, so it's not like two completely different worlds. But this is why we settled on a video game/comic book/general nerdy theme for the wedding.

I'm mainly doing all the planning for the wedding (getting my fiance's input here and there) the fiance is planning the honeymoon. We also agreed on it being red and black.

I'll be crafting a majority of it, but for now, inspiration pictures!

I got all my stuff down Grin

The fiance wanted to wear something like this:


Except instead of a jacket, he'd wear a vest. Also, red converses Cheesy

His groomsmen will be dressed in something similar to:
I'd prefer if my bridesmaids wear whatever dress they'd like, so long as it's about knee length and red. (I really like how it looks when bridesmaids wear different dresses)

I've got some decorations and what not lined up to make after I finish my portfolio review at the end of the month, so I'll be making sure to update this with my progress!

I hope you'll all like it Smiley
