I am recently engaged and I would like to have an outdoor wedding somewhere. I would love to get married at or near the beach, but I do not think my fiance and I could afford that. We are trying to keep the wedding cheap, but still nice. I am having a really hard time finding a nice, reasonable location. Any suggestions???

Well I got married at a place called Vivian Gardens which is a beautiful venue for an outdoor wedding. It is actually someones home but they have turned their back yard into a beautiful place for events, if nothing else go check the place out it's breath taking.

If you are looking for a reasonable photographer check out our website at We specialize in working with couples to get them the best value and not over extending their budget. As far as location, I am getting married Aug 1st at the Crestmore Manor and you might find them to be within your budget.

Hello Riverside friend,

I heard beach weddings are cheaper if you just have a basic ceremony. Might find something under Parks & Rec?

I am getting married at Crestmore Manor March 12, 2011 and the facility is just beautiful and good for the budget.

Good luck!! :)

I am getting married outdoors in Riverside, CA. It is the Wedgewood Wedding and Banquet Center at Indian Hills Golf Course. The gazebo overlooks one of the greens. The reception is going to be indoors. Wedgewood has many locations, and the people are great to work with. They have packages and vendors you can use if you don't want to find your own. They customize the packages, if there is something you don't want or something you want to add, it is very easy. Their website is:

Congratulations! The venue selected is beautiful. If You or your friends need a non-denominational minister that can Taylor your ceremony (religious or civil) to reflect your very special day, I would be happy and honor to discuss your options.

Best regards

My Husband and I just got married on the beach. It worked out great! We didnt have very many people so we just walked out there and it was FREE! We got the idea from our wedding photographers (Ocean Blue Photography and Design). They did the same thing when they got married. By the way, we love our photos! You should check them out:
