FC: Planning and budgeting a wedding. By:Becca Filanda
1: WEDDING DESCRIPTION For my wedding i wanted to be creative. So the theme of my wedding is a St.Louis Cardinals Theme. Anyone apart of this wedding is wearing the colors red and white. It is not like a normal wedding where you dress nice, but you dress as if you were going to a Cardinal game. The location will be in my backyard set up like a baseball diamond and at home plate that is where the bride, groom, and officiant will be. Officiant will be run by Carolyn Burke. The seating will be set up as if you were going to watch a baseball game.

27: Evaluation: When i signed up for this class i was really excited about this project and thought it would be easy to accomplish. Once we started the project i realized how hard it is to stay in a low budget. I also compared prices for a long time while in the process of this project, so it was hard to decide what i wanted to do. I learned planning a wedding is very complex and i understand why people hire wedding planners! My favorite part about this project was being creative. With only having 5,000, you had to be creative. I Disliked trying to find places because most of the places did not have a price on the website so i had to call and the people thought it was weird i was calling for a project. But overall the main thing it taught me was to budget money very well.. I stayed within my budget but i only have 118 to spare and what if i had an emergency. All in All i had fun doing this project and i hope in the future this will help me budget better.
