Ive decided I really like the whole “mansion/estate” setup, with the ceremony and reception at the same location.
Looking at June of July of 2013.
Has anyone been to any of the places in the philly/greater philly area (places like glenn foerd and appleford mansions and have any recomendations/advice?
we are looking to pay no more than $140 per head…
looking at about 120-140 people…need hotels somewhat nearby for groom’s family coming in from out of town…any advice or recommendations appreciated!

I just booked Glen Foerd for my April 2013 wedding. it’s absolutely gorgeous and definitely within your price range (even for a Saturday with a smaller package). My only complaint is that Conroy catering (the exclusive caterer for that venue) is incredibly inflexible and kind of tough to deal/negotiate with (although their food is very good). Knowlton is very nice too but I didn’t like the fact that it was on a busy intersection and that there was a gas station across the street, which could clearly be seen from their outdoor ceremony space.
I also looked at Cairnwood but their rental fee was more than what I could afford and I was not sold on the idea of having my guests sit in a bunch of different rooms (not a single room is big enough to hold 130-140 people
