Fun Ideas without breaking the bank

You're not the type to want to plan a traditional wedding, but can't come up with ideas to make it unique. Don't fret! Here are a few creative options designed to fit a tight budget!

park.jpgHost your wedding at a park instead of renting an expensive private venue! Local, state and federal parks are extraordinary wedding locations, providing your event with a setting worthy of a fairytale. Depending on the  park and size of your group, you will most likely need to secure a permit. That sounds a lot scarier than what it is. It's usually not more than filling out a form and paying a fee. The specifics based on your location can often be found by a simple online search, or by calling your local parks & recreation office. The cost is seemingly  low ($50 to a few hundred dollars) and in return, nature will provide you with and amazing backdrop for your special day!

Food trucks are so in right now! food truck.jpgHopefully, you've had the chance to enjoy some of the delectable creations coming out of a kitchen on wheels. Now, don't stop there! Did you know must food trucks can also cater your event, giving you the opportunity to host your guests a meal fit for a king without having to pay with your kingdom. To top it off, they can pretty much setup anywhere (say in a park) since food trucks are self contained. Cool huh!

Ice cream on the other hand is a completely different story. Add some caramel or chocolate sauce, sprinkles or a cookie to it and I'm in heaven.  Set it up as a self serve buffet with different toppings or hire an ice cream caterer like Smitten Ice Cream  and your guests will go home telling everyone that your event was the best ever!

This should get the creative juices flowing. Stay tuned for more to come!
