We will be having a church ceremony in East Orange and for the reception we’ll need a hotel that allows outside catering that’s within a reasonable driving distance (under 30 mins) from East Orange. Some nearby areas that seem close enough: west orange, montclair, bloomfield, maplewood, irvington.
I think we only want hotels as reception venues because: out of town guests will be staying there and drinking at reception and most might not have rental cars, we need to be able to fit over 150 ppl, we’ll need to have chairs/tables/plates etc. already there (not rentals), we’re fine w/paying venue for alcohol/beverages, but we’ll need to have outside catering (b/c we need to eat traditional food), and we’ll need to be able to pay to keep the party going late.
Thanks so much for any help
