- Wedding: October 2014
So I believe I figured out my venue situation.
Originally, I had found a bed & breakfast for my venue that was too good to be true, and it really was. It turns out for a decent meal, I would be paying around $4,000 for them to cater it, and they won’t let you bring in other food! It was also one heck of a trip for our flying-in guests to get to.
I was a tad bummed because I loved this venue, but 4,000 is extremely pricey for 60 guests in our area.
Looking around, I found a cute pavillion/barn, it doesn’t look that great but it has a whole lot of potential :
It is also ALOT cheaper, and we can cater in The Olive Garden for around $1000 [that includes 3 entrees for each person + a bunch of sides].
To sweeten the deal, I wanted a bus of some sort to bring my guests to & from the hotel, and I found a company in the town where the pavillion is that rents out party buses for…… $150 an hour, and does NOT charge for all the inbetween time [the 9 hours between the time they are dropped off & picked up]. Oh my god, I’m in heaven! They also rent limos for about $100 an hour.
actual party bus photos :
The only downside? We’ll have to change the date to get the pavilion due to halloween, we’re thinking 10/10/14.
Also, we’d be having the ceremony & reception in the building, and I need a way to kind of block off the ceremony portion, from the reception portion [well, i dont have to, but i’d like to], anyone have any ideas?
