We are getting in a month and had some of the same issues.  Our venue required 125 guests on Saturday and you were locked into afternoon or evening.  We had to go with a Sunday wedding but we had flexibility on our start time which we think will help our guests since our wedding will end at 8:30 giving them time to make a 2 or 3 hour drive home, if they don’t stay the night.  Anyone around on Monday my parents are hosting a BBQ for us to open gifts and visit w/ friends and family still in town.  Honestly, anyone that loves you and your Fiance will take the time off or just deal with a drive home on Sunday night to celebrate your wedding day with you. 

A plus… some vendors give discounts for Sunday events!

Welcome to the hive!

Sorry you are having such a frusterating time! I found one hall that had a max room of 150 and the next room was a minimum of 225 to book. We were looking at 175-200, so that venue was a immediate no go.

How many people are you looking at having? Why not look into having your reception at a restaurant? I’m having 45 people at my rehearsal dinner, so I’m looking at restaurants that have small banquet/meeting rooms. Or, you might be able to rent a section of the restaurant or, if it’s in the afternoon (like a lunch reception) you might be able to rent the whole restaraunt. Just suggesting some out of the box ideas.

Good luck!
