Not anytime this year. We're just planning and getting an idea of a potential budget so we can figure out when we'll be able to afford it.

Thanks, though I'm not officially engaged yet. No, him, his parents, and my parents will contribute, hence the we. I have only my exquisite taste of offer. I'm just a lowly student.

I've helped plan or been in several weddings the last year...

-My sis was going to rent her wedding dress from a place here in la where you rent couture/designer gowns for red carpet events and such. It's actually pretty inexpensive but she ended up buying a dress from someone who had a custom wedding dress made and got a great deal (because it was designed just to fit the one girl so she had to sell it cheap).
-Ordered wedding dress (200$) and bridesmaid dresses (about 100$) from Simply Bridal. I've actually worn my bridesmaid dress like 3 times already so it was a good deal.
-Free officiants (they were family friends).
-Catered it themselves with their favorite foods (ordered from restaurants...for example, indian food for dinner and krispy kreme and sprinkles cupcakes for dessert) and didn't specify they were ordering for a wedding.
-Got the wedding party and friends to pay for stuff (for example, I provided the drinks for one wedding).
-Had small weddings. (One was just parents and siblings...others were less than 100 people total)
-Free venue.
-All my family members had their rings designed by my mom's jeweler...so they got something unique, custom, and for a great price.

The only thing people consistently spent a lot on were photographers/videographers. If memories are important to you, that's one place you don't want to go cheap.
