So it's been a very very long time since I've been on PS. But I'm recently engaged and I am completely overwhelmed by the price of everything! I called the bridal shop to make an appointment, they asked me for my budget, I said $900 (hoping to spend less). They informed me that the average price of a wedding dress is $1700!!!! Holy cheeses!! I started looking at photographers... a good photographer starting price is $3000! where as the not so good photographers are still $1500-1700 starting price. And caterers.... if I had time I'd do my own food, but starting at $21/plate... geeze... I'm looking at at least $6K for just food (we are looking at 300 people, large, LARGE families)!!!

I need help! I'm in the process of hiring a wedding coordinator (present from my parents). My wedding date is 7/15/17, I have my Reception Venue (my Fiancé is a firefighter, so we are using their pavilion)

Any suggestions will help me... I
