HI All – have been to 3 venues and I can’t believe the prices that have been given to me for my daughters wedding. We have 150 guest on our list. Can’t cut anyone off so with that being said we are trying to keep the cost at about $135.00 per person including tax and gratuity. Does anyone have any suggestions? We live near Toms River. Grand Marquis is $176 a person 😮 and Addison Park told me they would work with us and changed their tune when we got there. Thank you all 🙂

Is it 150 people that you’re inviting, or 150 you know for sure will attend? For me these were two very different numbers ha.
I’m not sure what your budget is, but you have to look at what all you are getting for that price. Some venues have a rental fee and then you’re left to figure the rest out on your own.
I used weddingwire a lot looking for venues and vendors. You can put in your budget, you style, taste etc. And it will list venues for you to take a look at. I found it very helpful.

My fiance and I are looking at State parks in our area that allow us to rent out the space for the day. You have to do everything separately (so you’d get the venue, catering, set up, etc all individually) but the park as a venue is very cheap. And you get beautiful scenery as your decor.
Could you do something of that sort?
