My fiance and I got engaged in May, and are starting to plan our wedding. However, we don't have a whole ton of money to play with, and are trying to think of something really neat. If we want to have a traditional "big" wedding, we have to invite a minimum of 150 people. And so far, the best deal we've found for a banquet hall is about $60/person. So thats not very inexpensive. And I'm not too thrilled about the whole wedding in a church reception in a banquet hall idea, it seems overdone to me. We're about 30% serious when we talk about throwing in the towel and just going somewhere fun and eloping there. Maybe having our parents join too. Anyone have any ideas? Or better yet, did anyone do anything really interesting and neat for their wedding?
