- Wedding: July 2014
I’ve read through several threads on the board and have gotten some information that helped, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to post my own. I just got engaged and we’re hoping for a summer 2014 wedding (maybe July?). I’m having a little trouble finding venues that will have what we need… any suggestions?
Here is what we’re looking for:
– Someplace we can have the ceremony and the reception – outside options are ok, but I’d need at least a backup option indoors. If the reception has to be outside (tented), it would need AC. Summer and dancing combined are too hot!! We may have to have the ceremony indoors to have it accepted by the Catholic Church so an indoor ceremony location is my preference.
– I’d like to spend 11,000 or less on the rental fee, full plated dinner catering (including cocktail hour), and an open bar. So if the venue isn’t all-inclusive, the rental fee needs to be pretty low.
– We are looking at 120-135 guests. We need seats for everyone during the ceremony and at dinner and would like to have a large dance floor in the same room as dinner.
Any thoughts? I know I’m being picky – I have a few ideas, but we’re still searching! Lower than 11K would be even better 🙂 We might be able to do a Friday night, but it’s looking like Saturday night at this point. I am totally open to any suggestions you might have and any advice for a Friday night wedding with out of town guests would be wonderful.
