    Whats the best, easiest and cheapest way to plan a wedding??

    Hi everyone! I am new to this site!!

    I'm engaged to be married :-) And I don't want to spend alot of money but I want a nice wedding. The colors that we were thinking are baby blue, silver and white. I would like to have the wedding outside, I'm thinking in the spring or the fall. I only plan on having 3 or 4 bridesmaids. I've never been married before so I don't know where to start. My mom said that she would help me plan but other advice is fine too. After all, I make the final decision :-) Thanks yall!

    You can not achieve all the three things simultaneously. If you are looking for best wedding, it can not be cheapest. It may vary from person to person to name a wedding as best. Again easiest wedding can not be the cheapest wedding. You have to spend lot of money on a wedding to make it easiest and cheapest.

    just go to the courts or a church with a witness or the family who want to be there and the cost about $100 to 200, depend on the license and you marry, any thing else is what you want and what you want to spend

    Upon reading the question, notice was made that inclusion of the groom was only mentioned once.  It is important that the groom be a viable part of the wedding as well.  Talk to the groom about the questions posed here because it is his wedding also.

    The very first thing you need to do is have a budget.  You budget is whatever you and your fiance can comfortably spend on this wedding without going into debt.  Planning a beautiful wedding at any budget level is possible.  Setting a budget will determine what you will want to spend on each aspect of your wedding.  Decide what is the most important aspect and that will probably be the most expensive on your budget list.  But as I mention to my brides value over economy, you could easily save money on many aspects (economy) but sometimes cutting back may not be beneficial (value) Decide on the formaility of your wedding, of course the more formality the more elements that you may want to include which will have you spending more.  Decide what type of reception you want to have, brunches and cocktail receptions can save you money.  Also consider a mid week wedding or a non wedding month, I have attended weddings on Wednesdays and thursdays.  With enough notice your guests will make the neccesary arrangements.  check out my blog for other wedding tips http://aleximanievents.blogspot.com/ .
