Always loved pilgrims and their food? Want to get married on a day off to make sure everyone can attend? Want to get married on columbus day? Here is how!
Get married monday or sunday to avoid inflated costs. Saturdays are the most expensive days to get married, with fridays a close second. These are the most in-demand days, so they are the most expensive to book.
Ask who gets off of work on the monday of columbus day. If too many guests work on that monday, consider a sunday morning wedding.
Keep things festive with music, food and entertainment. A turkey dinner is often the staple in a pilgrim-themed wedding. Add potatoes, carrots and gravy and you get a real fine meal.
Let the music flow with an iPod on shuffle, a live band or a musician to play for you. Hiring a music teacher or student is a lot cheaper than a full priced professional without skimping on the quality.
Keep games light and fun. Depending on the weather, have your guests set up games to enjoy. Toss bags, have a horse shoe toss, play darts, play croquet or even polo to eep you occupied.
Drink up the wine and beer since they are the cheapest to provide for your guests. Put a cork on he liquor and save hundreds.
Ask retirees for help if they still volunteer locally. Got a widowed caterer that’s retired? Often they go back to work or volunteer to keep their sense of purpose. Settle a fair wage and enjoy the help!
