GUEST POST BY PRETTY IN PINK ENTERTAINMENT
The average wedding in the city of Chicago costs approximately $27,000! With this fact, many couples choose to limit the guest count and do a smaller, all-inclusive destination wedding to save on funds.
However, working with various vendors, caterers and venues over the years led me to realize that if you coordinate properly, you can actually get married right in Chicago for around $10,000! The key thing to remember here is that you must talk with your vendors. When discussing budget, be honest and be realistic. If they're not willing to accommodate that budget, find someone who will!
A $10K is possible! If that's your budget, don't fret! Just take a minute to decide what's important to you and how many guests you'd really like to have. Then start planning.
Because coordination is such an important part of putting together a $10K wedding, we'd like to show you our package to give you an idea of what this kind of wedding might look like! Take a look at this sample proposal for a 100-guest cocktail reception wedding!
Venue- Moonlight Studios is a beautiful event space in Chicago's west loop. This budget friendly location is perfect for a cocktail reception!
Design- Imagine a modern lounge vignette with cocktail dinner style seating for 50, complete with handwoven linen and custom tabletop designs. The other 50 guest will be busy on the dance floor! The entire event will be planned by Pretty in Pink Entertainment.
