- Wedding: September 2009
Help! I am now totally overwhelmed!
I am in the midst of planning a wedding that needs to include:
- Jewish ceremony – my finance is Jewish
- Chines banquet – I am Chinese
- Be sustainable – my fiance is a sustainability consultant
- Be classy and FUN – my one requirement
We are planning on having 200 people. Most of the guests are from out of town – in fact, out of the countr; and most are American.
We found a great Chinese restaurant in midtown NY – S. Dynasty at 50th and Lexington – since we didn’t want to go to Flushing and didn’t want to go into Chinatown. If anyone has any other recommendations, please let me know. Or if anyone know of a good caterer that could pull off a fabulous Chinese banquet?
Now we need to find a site for our ceremony. Help! Would love to do an outdoor ceremony on a rooftop deck that is close by the restaurant where we can also host an 1-1/2 cocktail reception?
My friends are recommending that we do the banquet on a Friday night and then have a small day time ceremony and recption;but think that would totally blow our budget away!
Any and all advice would be very helpful! I am even willing to be in Northern Jersey if it all can work out!
