- Wedding: December 2012
Im inserious need of a venue/reception site. My fiancé & I had to reschedule our wedding and with any luck will be getting married in January . We are on a pretty tight budgeT for everything about 5k for everything.
I live in Manassas Virginia and would like to stay within the 1.5 hour travel range-in any direction.
It will be about 50 people max
Winter wedding theme
Looking for something scenic, lodges, pretty church, hall, house, anywhere. My dress has a bit of a Victorian feel to it, so to stay matchy matchy I’d like it all to sort of look like it belongs together. Like a really cool theme party.
Has to allow self catering ( I can’t afford a caterer, & I used to be one, just not licensed).
I have been looking into pretty churches ( I’m not catholic so that’s out) but have been having a hard time with the search. There doesn’t seem to be a “church data base”that you can look up churches that allow receptions.
Trying to stay away from restaurants, b&bs, or hotels. Anywhere basically that won’t allow me to bring my own food.
My wedding was originally scheduled for believe it or not this Saturday the 18th. I had mailed a check to a church in Maryland & was literally about to print the invitations. Then 3 days later my fiancé lost his job & was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. Needless to say we had to postpone . now that we have decided to try again the church we had originally chosen would be to small considering everyone will be indoors.
So i think we can still make this day happen but really need some help from the other brides to “bee” any suggestions are welcomed and appreciated. I’m sure between all of us bees we have seen every possibility for wedding venues up and down the east coast & beyond. Please pass along your findings!!!!
Thank you bees!!!
