You just need to find a restaurant that has enough room for 20 people, that won’t be hard. I’m answering for all your posts though because you have so many going on right now. You might get better answers if you ask them all in one post.

If you’re at a restaurant you won’t need to worry about music. If you are wanting music, the restaurant should be able to help you with that. That would mean food is taken care of as well. I would start making phone calls asap.

@mrsedwardslpn:  Don’t look for such fancy restaurants. My guess is that the 20 people that are coming are family and very close friends. They aren’t going to care about how fancy it is. They just want to celebrate your marriage. Try looking at some other places.

@mrsedwardslpn:  I understand that but at this point you really don’t have a whole lot of options. You need to find a place quickly.

@mrsedwardslpn:  look for some smaller, off the beaten path places – find something that suits you really well – and maybe you can buy the place out.  We’re doing that for about 65 guests.

What about a public or state park? They usually have pavilions or even a cabin or house you can rent for the day, for not much money. (And some of them are really nice!) I had my wedding at a public park, and we had a caterer set up a nice buffet. You can bring your own speakers for music.

I managed to get wedding food for $25/pp in Chicago– you can do it in Buffalo.  Call restaurants with private dining rooms, tell them your budget.  Hotels, local parks, art galleries, etc are all in the same game.

Go to yelp, search for buffalo restaurants, and then filter it by “good for groups”.  Choose some you like, go to their websites, and see what their policies are for private parties.

@mrsedwardslpn:  Our minimum spend on a Saturday night in downtown Vancouver for a place that holds up to 85 people is $3000.
