Have you thought about The Lakeland Room at Lake Mirror Tower. It is a wonderful room for 100 Guests. It includes new chairs and also the tables. The price to rent the room is $700.00 and it is yours for the day. The office is open from 9:00 to 5:00 Monday through Friday and from 9:00 to 3:00 on Saturdays. We also have a wedding planner for the room if you would like to have assistance in finding those vendors you are looking for and stay within your budget. We are at 130 S. Massachusetts Avenue downtown Lakeland.
My friend arranged her sister sweet sixteen party at leonards palazzo long island NY and it was very well organised, and in the budget.She consulted a party planner and I would suggest you the same,consult a party planner.

Need a location for 40th Bday party
Something that allows us to bring our own food, DJ and alcohol (the location would ideally have a bar, speakers/sound system for the DJ to plug into), we would be roughly 80-100 people.
Any suggestions?
Dallas, Plano, Allen, Frisco areas would be great.
Best wish, I hope that you are able to get the wedding you are looking for.
There are many advises you get to hear about wedding and specially before getting married. I think the best would be to" stay together in thick and thin".
Without DJ, party can't be complete. As DJ is the only person who can play best with the crowd.
I am planning a July 4th wedding in the Atlanta,ga area and just like everyone else I am on a budget. I only have 50 guest and would love to have some inexpensive catering. I have my heart set on a venue but not sure if I will get it or not. My budget is $3000.00 for venue and food, everything else I can slowly take care of. If you can offer any help in any area of my wedding it would be a blessing. Happy Wedding everyone!!!!

Atlanta Wedding on a Budget
Hey everyone! My name is Cassandra. My fiance and I are getting married this year and looking to be between $5-$6,000 for everything. We are trying to go all inclusive at one venue or find a place we can mix and match vendors. I know this budgets a bit low but we are also new parents and can't go into debt for this. We are going to have 75-100 guests and don't really care as far as the day of the week or time of the year really. Any advice is great. My email is soontobebrunson@gmail.com


Thanks!

Looking for recommendations
I am throwing a surprise 90th birthday party and anticipating ~40 guests. I've spent hours looking at various options however I feel they are all going to make the party look very small for the size of the venues. Any recommendations? I'm trying to stay within 30 minutes of Lake Worth, FL.

I am looking for a AWESOME place to throw my husband a surprise 30th birthday party! I plan on about 50-100 people if I am lucky, I would be interested in food, but would also be fine with bringing it!

I want a place were we aren't going to be yelled at for being to loud, I want to hire a band and want enough room for people to dance, but not to much room that it looks silly!

Honestly, just a place were we can have fun, maybe too much fun! smile

My name is Diane and I'm one of the event specialist from Majestic Virtual Event Planners. A VFW hall would be the most inexpensive way to go. My best friend had her wedding and wedding reception at a VFW hall with catering. You can place decor in the room very inexpensively to dress the room up a bit. Also if you don't need a DJ but would like some nice spa like music bring a boom box with the music CD and play the music while everyone is eating ..

Wedding Planning on a Budget!
My name is Stephanie.

I'm just starting to look into planning a wedding and unsure of the costs of the main components for a wedding. We want to keep a $10,000 budget for the wedding. Hoping to have it in Naples but Ft. Myers is also a possibility.

We want the ceremony and reception to be in the same venue. When we have the venue, reception, and food locked down, everything else we could figure out. Date is undecided but geared towards summer of 2016 but open for off-season times. Looking at 125-150 guests.

Ideas appreciated please!

Thank you!

WEDDING VIDEO TIPS
In an effort to make this post an even more valuable resource we will periodically be updating our post with video tips from our newsletters. There are ten tips in this series and it is our hope that you will find them helpful.

The bridal couple have selected the video production company for the their wedding and now the real work begins. The first major step in having the best possible wedding video is "The Pre-Production Process".

VIDEO TIP #3: Pre-production is that golden time in the video process to insightfully consider possible problems that might come up and for the bridal couple to relate their expectations of what the finished product should look like.

Communication is single the best tool that can be used by the customer and the vendor to help each other achieve the best results. Customers should let the video company know what is important to them (because every bridal couple is different) and never assume what your vendor knows. It wouldn't hurt to write down those things that are important to be captured for your wedding video and share that information with the production company.

If the production company has not communicated what they need from the bridal couple, the wedding venue(s), and the wedding participants, we suggest a pro-active approach to this portion of the pre-production phase be taken. Find out from the company what they will need, and to what extent they will need it. Be prepared to let the production company know about any ground rules or special circumstances in the areas of camera shooting locations, any movement restrictions, and the use of lighting that exist at the church or the wedding portion venue. The reception or any other venue location should also be discussed so that an action plan can be put together.

Finally, just as your photographer needs time with you and the other wedding participants to get the photos you expect, your videographer will also need time with you and the other wedding participants to fulfill the shot list you have worked out as well for your wedding video. This is a very important area where you should work closely with both vendors so that the videographer, photographer and the bridal couple can collectively plan the allocation of that most precious commodity, time.

A good wedding video starts with good pre-production planning.

Visit our web site at www.kmcvideoproductions.com if you want to find more information.

Hello smile

I am 21 years old and have been with my wonderful fiancé for almost 6 years now. We have been engaged for almost two months and I am completely lost. We will be paying for the wedding ourselves, with a budget of 10,000. Anything less would be a miracle!!! We are located in Orlando Florida and are very concerned about finding a pretty unique indoor venue, mainly because we are scared of the bipolar weather. There will be about 80 guest, and sadly I am planning this whole thing on my own. Also I might be taking over the task of paying it by myself because my fiancé is going through a very hard time in his life.In the end he is a part of me, and I will be here through thick and thin. I am extremely determined to create this event, in the hopes of creating beautiful memories. I just truly need some guidance.

Bridal shower
I am from Omaha but need to plan a bridal shower for my niece in Ankeny. There will be about 20 people and looking for a venue. Thanks!
I'm starting my planning early (a year ahead), I want everything to be perfect and want to plan out my budget.
I'm looking for a place to give my husband a surprise party for his 50th next year (1/9/2016). I have been looking for a place that will also provide food, but have not found anything I like as of yet. I have requested quotes online (venue, catering, dj & photographer), but no responses yet. I want to eat, drink & party at the same venue.
I will be inviting friends and family from out-of-town (NY, MD, DC, NC) and will need to get a group rate at a nice place with a reasonable rate...the guest list will be between 30 - 50 people.
Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
