Masquerade Ball
Hi everybody,

I'm a student at Concordia University and I've recently been elected VP finance in an association. The association is called Acsion (African and Caribbean Students' Network of Canada ), and I'm in charge of organizing one of our events which will be a masquerade ball. I want this event to be a fancy event and I'm looking for a great venue. There will be a live jazz band playing and also an auction during the evening. Also, we want a venue that will allow us to hire our own caterer ( we want to serve african & caribbean bouchés) and located downtown. I'm open to any suggestions, thanks.

venue help
I am helping a friend plan her wedding for june 2016. She wants it in her home town Wilmington Delaware. We are having a hard time picking a venue that will accommodate 200 guests, serve alcohol, allow outside catering, and possibly have overnight accommodation or close to a hotel. We were hoping to spend less than $2000 total on the venue/fees. if anyone knows of a great venue i would really appreciate it. Thank you

Wedding with a budget!
Well as most do when just getting engaged is planning a wedding, with that being said I'm looking to do my wedding with a budget under $3000. I live in Lakeland,FL but am open to have it any where in Polk County or in Tampa or Orlando because I know with my kind of budget I'm a little limited. My wedding will have about 100 guest looking to do a country wedding theme. If its all inclusive we are willing to do a budget of about $4000. Any suggestions would help!

Alberta wedding on a budget
ive heard that the alberta aviation museum rents out, personally, i think that it is the coolest space around
however, now that you dont have the working airport in the background the out of doors portion of your request may not work, but definitely the indoors portion is very very cool
so much so, that if i were approached to work it, i would do it pro bono if i werent a business
seeing that i am, $500.00 would more than cover it
just for the opportunity

Under $2000 Budget
I dontlive in your area, but it is so beautiful!! Are there any parks that you can obtain permission to use and then just rent chairs and such? Also you can buy chair sashes very cheap (cheaper than renting) and with little white chairs the sashes can add a big bang for a tiny price tag!! Good Luck!!

Wedding Centerpieces
I am planning a Quencenera/ Sweet Sixteen on a budget also. I am leaning towards a similar idea to keep it cheap and elegant. I think a 12inch tall cilender vase with clear glass pebbles in the bottom and one white rose bud about 6-8 inches in total length will be placed into the vase, then filled with water allowing about 2-3 inches from the top and a floating candle... I know it's rpbably been done before also... but I think it will be a little unique and with any luck it will look like I spent more on it than i did!! ;-)

10,000 wedding and reception
I am trying to plan a wedding and reception for about 10,000. The guest will range from 125-150. It will be in the Atlanta area. I want an inside venue. Would love to to an all inclusive if possible.
Hi there,

Aside from the standard and very well known traditional conference/convention spaces in the city am interested in knowing of spaces that could accommodate up to 200-300 or more seated theater style (but not necessarily theater), ideally has AV already built in and wifi as well as a lobby/reception area for vendor tables and possible break out spaces. If the venue has furniture well then that's an added bonus. Food on-site is not overly critical. Would be for a day event (ie a Sat around 8AM - 6PM). Oh and not a gazillion dollars to rent either.

Thanks

After Gruaduation Fiesta
I am looking for a venue in Wichita Falls, TX for an after graduation banquet on May 30, 2015. Total of 25-30 guests.
My sister is getting married in 6 months, so I thought it's the best time to start planning on that. My sister wants a simple wedding and we'll have it in our grandparent's house in Santa Barbara. We are looking for party rental vendors in Santa Barbara who can take care of all the needs. Also need help on give away gifts. We want to give something to the guest which will stay with them long. Please share your thoughts. Thanks a lot in advance.
Oddly, people seem to be giving wedding advice to a question about marriage. Weddings have become so overdone in my mind that I think too many people sacrifice the real point for one day of celebration. The ritual is important, but the marriage is the point.

I've been successfully married 33 years. I think expectations are everything. There is no reality, but only perception, so make sure you aren't idealizing marriage or your partner. I find love is not actually as important as "like". Be aware of more than the emotion because like choosing a puppy, love will almost always grow, but compatibility, similar values and goals, the willingness to compromise, being trustworthy and trusting are so much more important.

Feelings come and go. Commitment is what will see you thru the bad days. Never consider divorce and solutions become possible.
Independent Association of Framingham State Alumni Ladies Night Out

I had the opportunity to present several mini Education by Entertainment programs at the Independent Association of Framingham State Alumni Ladies Night Out open house in Framingham, MA on Thursday, April 23, 2015. The event was a fundraiser to support the association whose mission is to provide scholarships to Framingham State University students, support the university and maintain the alumni house and its programs. Ladies Night Out was held at the association’s Alumni House at 42 Adams Road in Framingham MA.

Guests had the opportunity to tour the Alumni House (which is available for rental for business, community and family events) as well as to visit tables where vendors were selling or promoting products such as: Stella & Dot Jewelry, Handbags, and More; local honey and beeswax products; self-defense and safety, children’s car seats, CPR; beauty and skincare; health, nutrition and snacks; airbrush spray tanning; gifts for moms and grads and my Education by Entertainment programs. Several of the vendors including the self-defense, the airbrush spray and Education by Entertainment providers offered live demonstrations. Guests were also treated to a snack and desert table with cookies, brownies, crackers and cheese along with a wine tasting.

A photo album of some of my mini Education by Entertainment program activities may be viewed on SlideShare. The album cover is shown below.

    30th High School Reunion
    Hi! An awesome place to hold your reunion is in West Chester. www.TheBallroomAtWestside.com or ChristinasCatering.com they work at alot of great locations. Another great place for a reunion but a bit pricy is www.RidleyMansion.com

    Looking for a place to hold our 30th high school reunion. Would love a less-traditional and less-formal space, maybe with some cozier places to sit and talk. Bar on site or bar service. Would be great if a hotel were within walking distance for those coming from out-of town. We held our last reunion at a hotel but the bar was not part of the main room and everyone mostly stood around the bar which cut down on mingling etc.

    Thanks for any suggestions!
