I only recently got engaged, but we figured out that the most convenient time to get married for everyone in our families for the next few years, is this November! People are coming from all over the world for Thanksgiving, so to get everyone here another date would be very expensive and hard to coordinate, not to mention the fact that my sister is getting married in Europe next summer, so I really would like to keep my wedding as inexpensive for everyone as possible.
Which gets me to the real problem…
Where in the world can I hold my reception with this short of notice? The plan is to hold the ceremony in the Boston Garden so I’d like to keep it near there, but all of the hotels are over $175/person, and restaurants don’t seem to be much less… Any thoughts?? There will probably be around 60-70 of us…

It surprises me that even restaurants are that much. you can definitely get dinner and drinks for way less than that during anight out. Have you checked less well known places? What about Silvertone? That would be a good size for your list. Or City Table in the Lenox? Iguess the issue is that you need a large enough restaurant to not need it to close for the night, thus charging you an arm and a let per head. Where have you looked? Do you have budget for transport for a restaurant a little further from the Garden?
Feel free to PM me if you don’t want to share a lot of details here!

It won’t let me edit my post but I wanted to clarify, we’re planning on the ceremony in the garden next to the common (near the swan boats and ducklings), not where the bruins play… We’re also considering the aquarium if they’ll let us put tables and heaters outside… They’re checking with the fire Marshall so fingers crossed!
