    Default Where did you get married?

    In a church, exotic location, elope?

    We a few people here that are going to be getting married sometime in the future and have been gathering information of frugal wedding venues. It got me wondering where others have actually gotten married.

    My dh and I got married at a little wedding chapel here in Florida. It was mainly used for that purpose. It held maybe 100 people. My dh's brother and his wife got married there a few years before we did. It has since been the target of an arsonist.

    We had the reception at my in laws house.

    Christ the King Catholic Center

    It is the Catholic Church/Student Center on LSU's campus. The pictures on the website don't do it justice.

    I got married in the church I grew up in. My grandpa was the minister of the church for 15+ years and he performed the ceremony. We had the reception at the church also.

    Oh my! That is quite the location! I am not even sure I have pictures of the outside of the church I got married in. I do have some from inside.

    The church was just off a two lane road kind of in the woods, well in a clearing anyway.

    We got married and had our reception at dh's parents house. Including the cost of my dress, we spent less than $1500 for the whole thing. We were blessed to have many talented friends that offered their services as a wedding gift to us. Therefore we paid nothing for the cake and photographer. We had aprrox. 100 guests.

    That was the first picture that came up when I googled it.

    Now I'm sitting here looking at my wedding pictures instead of working...

    Both times I have been married the wedding cake was a gift. The first one God bless the person that made it. The cake was leaning over. We just got a chuckle out of it. The second time the person did a wonderful job it had fondant on it and a fountain under itl Really beautiful.

    At my first wedding my in-law picked the band. They were the worst! Good thing we were drinking we still had a blast. Not thanks to the band.

    I'm boring. I got married in a big catholic wedding, with a big drunken reception. Now, I wish we would have gotten married somewhere cool, like a beach.
