My daughter plans to get married on the beach in August. She is on a very tight budget. Could anyone recommend someone to make her cake, a place for the reception and a photographer? The cake just needs to be 2 layers, and we're only planning on about 30 people. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We live in WV, so it's very difficult to plan a wedding there. Thank you!

Why not go down a day r two early with a friend, rent a cottage, bake and cook there--AND hold the recepton there? Is there a reason you can't make the cake and food yourself? There are affordable cottages (weekly rentals)just off the beach. Get one with very close beach access--I recommend the houses on Marshwalk or the streets just before and after. As for thephtographer we spent 5,000 on one fr our daughter's wedding, and the snapshots taken by friends were as good--once e played around with them on the computer they looked just as professional. Save your money.

PS Cottages are less expensve beginning Aug 17.
Call Hobbs Realty, Coastal, Brunswickland, and Al Holden Realty and give them your budget. Don't be afraid to ask for a discount.

LeeAnn Politis is the best officiants anywhere around! There are so many places for cakes and all are good! Lots of great caterers, but cheaper is to do a cookout for the rehearsal (grilled chicken and veggies) and for the wedding fix your own food. Lots of Sam's appetizers (cheap and easy), some of your own recipes for finger foods. In addition we heated marinara in crock pot, had Sam's Meatballs to dip in it. We did Olive bread (French bread brushed with olive oil and topped with chopped green and black olives, then topped with cheese and broiled). My daughter's wedding was under $1000. Flower's (ordered online and we made the bouquets etc). It was a most beautiful wedding!
