Hello everyone! David and I are pretty much at the beginning of our planning journey, so we're starting off looking at possible venues that are offer all-inclusive packages, or buffet, seated dinner packages, VS. trying to find a cheap venue to rent and bringing in our own catering/beverages. Our budget for this part is quite tiny(ex. 4500$ including 15% tax and hopefully "15%tip as seems to be the requirement) and our guest list is big in comparison (112-115 estimated people that would come).
We live in Montreal, but are exploring options outside of the city to see if we could possibly find something that fits our budget and pleases us and at the same time has lodging. In your opinions, how far (ex. Hours of driving) is too far for us to ask guests to travel? What is the furthest you've ever travelled (by car) to get to a wedding and how did you feel about it then? Was it annoying, not a big deal, etc?
Any other advice?
Thank you in advance!!!
