- Wedding: May 2013
I live in Buffalo, NY & am currently trying to find a shower venue. My finacee & I are having a non-traditional wedding – we are getting married in the Dominican Republic next May with about 30 of our closest family & friends making the trip with us. We are then having a 200+ person BBQ reception when we return a few weeks later.
Originally I did not want a shower at all because we are not having a traditional wedding. My family & friends have all insisted that I need to have a tradtional shower (friends claim it’s finally my turn & they are not letting me off the hook – I do have the best friends!), anyways I want to keep the shower as inexpensive as possible for my bridesmaids because I feel like I’m already asking them to do so much by paying for & traveling to our destination wedding. I absolutely do NOT want a shower in a restaurant – I want simple & causal so I am trying to find a venue in Buffalo that would allow us to bring in our own food/drinks that can hold 50 people??? I’m considering some nearby parks that have enclosed shelters with heat & a kitchen – my shower is in April & knowing Buffalo, it could be a blizzard that day! We are planning to pick up trays of cold meats, rolls, salads & whatever else from Wegmans. Any ideas of nice, cheap locations in Buffalo for 50+ people?
