Not from that area, but I might put the location in the title (I believe some locations have separate boards).  You will get a lot more hits and useful comments that way.

for that budget, i would suggest a state or local park and having a place like panera or other sandwich place cater. 

i’m sorry but $5000 for 150 people isn’t going to get you much and i’d rather you spend that money on food for your guests than anything else.

ckarencs:  $5000 for a wedding in NJ, CT or NY is hard for 150 people. 

What you can do is have the ceremony at either a park or chuch (whatever you prefer), and then just book a dinner or lunch reception at a restaurant BUT DONT tell them its a wedding. Once a restuarants hears wedding, they “up” the price. If they ask whats the occassion, just say no occassion, just a get together with family 

I know a bride that did this and it worked. They couldn’t say a thing bc everything was paid for. 

I would suggest decreasing your guest list bc if you go that route, you might have an issue getting a restaurant to fit 150. You might want to consider the 80-100 guest list
