Budget wedding suggestions when the weather is not so great....
It's getting chilly in Indy... It's also been a rainy wedding season in general. My $120 Indy Elopement is a great budget elopement option when the weather is good. But what to do when it's not so good and you are still on a budget?
First of all. I don't offer a backup plan. I officiate weddings, I don't plan them. I offer options in public spaces to keep the prices low. If you choose to book the $120 Indy Elopement you do so at your own risk. I'm more than happy to re-schedule the same day or a different day. I'm also happy to have you change locations at the last minute within reason. I can give you suggestions but you are responsible for contacting the locations yourself and making reservations and payments. Going into winter, I suggest making arrangements and booking a Small, Family Wedding for $150 that can be held in a restaurant, Bed and Breakfast, small venue or even your own home. If you are planning on dinner, you can often use a room in the restaurant to have a small ceremony. Often you can rent a club house or activity room in your housing development or apartment complex for a nominal fee.
The picture above was taken in the auditorium in the nature center at Holiday Park is in the Meridian Hills area of Northwest Indianapolis. They have beautiful outdoor ruins where you can take pictures if it’s not too cold. They also rent rooms where you can get married at very reasonable prices.
Garfield Park Conservatory is located in Garfield Park on the south side of Indianapolis It’s an indoor garden so it’s always lovely for pictures. They rent out their waterfall area for weddings for up to 20 people with standing room only. The price starts at $295 with more expensive options for more people.
Indianapolis City Market is a place where I will meet couples, just the couple, to sign their marriage license and make your marriage legal. It is a very simple civil wedding. If you would like to have more people at your wedding, you can book your event with City Market directly. They will reserve a public space for you for as little as $50. There are also many vendors and a bar within the market so you can arrange for a cake and even a champagne toast if you like.
