FI and I have been stressing out over what to do with our very small budget for a reception. It looks like we may have found an option! It’s this cute Italian restaurant that has been in business for 30 years in my hometown. They have a banquet hall that holds 80 people, which should be fine for us. And they tell me they can accommodate our budget of $20/per person! This is without alcohol, but that’s fine. I’m thinking of paying for a few bottles of wine on each table and being done with it. It’s just basically dinner and socializing, no dancing or anything, so I think it should be fine.
I can’t believe we’ve FINALLY found something!

Nice! We rented a room in a sushi restaurant for our rehearsal dinner, and I actually wish we had just done that for our wedding. If was so intimate and fun! (and so much cheaper!!!).

@solidarity: That sounds perfect! For such a small/intimate celebration, I think a couple of bottles of wine will be great!

Hooray, we booked it!! For a whopping $100 deposit, yahoo!!!
The banquet room is so much nicer than I remember. They have an awesome sound system we can hook up ipods to and a big screen TV and projector if we want it. They were so nice and flexible. It’s going toend up being $20 per person, without open bar. We’re not sure what we’re going to do about that yet. Cash bar isn’t off the table, but I wish it was! We might run a limited tab.
The food at this place is so good! We go there all the time. People are going to love it!
I am SO EXCITED!!!! And relieved!!
