A friend of mine is planning to get married, tight on budget and money($3k-$4k).

Was exchanging ideas and thought to ask around and see what do you have to say in terms of places, outdoor(park, winery, etc..) vs indoor or anything of that sort?

Thank you thumbsup

Some churches will give you a break on the use of their hall if you are a parishioner.

Get married on the proverbial courthouse steps, then stay in comped room in Atlantic City casino hotel for honeymoon. Doesn't get much cheaper than that. Yes, I know for a fact someone who did this.

How many estimated persons attending?
Age group?
Desired time period? (some places may be booked for 6months in advance)

Yep, this.. It's what my wife and I did. Little Chapel of the Flowers is inexpensive, offers some decent options, and can even stream it out over the internet if you have friends and family that can't/won't go to Vegas.

Plus, there's tons to do after the wedding ceremony is over. banana

I'm surprised you haven't gotten hoards of replies stating that spending any money on a wedding is just stupid...

Tell him not to get sucked into doing what other people want, tell him to do what he wants, even if it's getting married at Waffle House.

Of the weddings I've been to, the smaller, more casual ones seemed way more fun than the big blowouts.

We did a courthouse wedding. $25. Titanium Rings from Amazon $50. Done.

My brother had his on a cruise ship. Everyone pays their own.

haha, assuming your friend is the Groom, you have pretty much zero say.
Save your brainpower for something else.

Your job is to show up and make sure your friend the Groom shows up or whatever he needs you to do. The wedding planning and choices customarily falls to the Bride's prerogative.

The only time where you should speak up is if YOU have something to offer such as YOUR house/backyard/venue or other party hookup that you wish to offer it up to them for FREE as a no-strings gift
