I feel a little lost with what to do. I have a beautiful venue that I just absolutely adore. I would say it's my dream venue. They take care of everything from the DJ, officiant, decor... You name it. All in we are looking at $30,000 for 80-100 guests, but I just can't fathom this price. Everyone keeps telling me it's an amazing price considering we basically do nothing except pick out what we want. I just can't get past spending as much as a down payment for a house on one day. We wouldn't go into debt, but it would be TIGHT.
I am on the fence of going with this venue, or just getting married at city Hall and doing a reception somewhere else for about 80 people. I don't mind the idea of a "backyard reception", the problem is I don't know of anyone with a big enough property.
Has anyone gotten/getting married at a city Hall or know of anyone who has? Did it turn out well?
Any ideas on where I can host a "backyard" style reception without it being at a friend or families backyard? Or anyone have cheap reception venue ideas? Or just ideas in general!?
I'm so lost with what I should do...
Thanks loves xx
