Make a list of assumptions that will be used as the basis for planning the wedding. (And no, it is not acceptable to assume that Tony and Peggy Sue will just elope, no matter how tempting that will be). Tony and Peggy Sue have a short time to plan their wedding. Texas is special to them as it is where they met and also where they are living/working. Planning a wedding in 6-months is a time consuming process. The travel that would be necessary for their involvement in a wedding would be difficult if they had to go to either New York or NebraskaCombination. Peggy Sue and Tony should ask for the maximum contributions from their parents and then be prepared to fund the additional amount themselves. As both parents initially had planned on doing something significant in their own wedding plans (i.e. Peggy Sue's mom had the luncheon planned and Tony's parents allowing them to use their banquet hall) they should contribute the equivalent amount, or a maximum amount they are comfortable spending on the wedding. This will likely cover the traditional contribution of the Groom's family paying for the bar and the brides parents the remainder (however, in this case, Tony and Peggy Sue will make up the difference). Another option in this case, is since Tony's family has experience with cooking/catering, they may choose to offer to provide the food for the wedding as opposed to the bar. Dallas is a larger metropolitan area. This means that wedding costs will be higher than in other areas. The average cost per person at a wedding can be as high as $100 per person (average $40 for food, $20 for bar, and remainder for location, attire, invitations, etc.). Tony and Peggy Sue will ask for select involvement from family and friends for planning of their wedding. As neither of their families are in the Dallas area, their involvement will be minimized on location alone. Outdoor Ceremony/Reception at one of the various locations in DallasWhen discussing their dream wedding, Tony and Peggy Sue were both in agreement that they wanted a large outdoor wedding (both ceremony and reception). There is a multitude of outdoor venues in the greater Dallas, TX area that would allow them to achieve this. The weather in Dallas provides for a good location to have an outdoor wedding. This also allows them to have a place that is special to them as a couple, and not on an individual family basis. Additionally, if they were able to find a location where they could have both events at the same place, this would reduce cost in transportation between venues, timing for moving location (i.e. the bar has to be open for less time, not need a cocktail hour, etc.).
