We are really really on a tight budget which is not more than $7000 all in... yes, that is mean dresses/suits, venue, catering, entertainment DJ or live music, MC, flowers, decoration, centerpiece, photographer, videographer etc... etc... oh boy, like it's never end...

The invitation guests will probably reach 65pax.. where we are looking for winter wedd Jan.2016 surrounding by river or lake or mountain or any beautiful natural scenes for the outdoor ceremony and do indoor reception near Tahoe, Genoa, Carson, Washoe valley, Reno, Incline Village, Gardnerville, Fernley, Fallon area

Asking to all vendor to help us please...

Thanking you in advance

Happy yet stressful bride to be,
Juli

Engagement/Birthday Party
I'm looking for a Venue in Manhattan that would accommodate about 80 pp . in Late August
looking for a venue in either the Bronx or Manhattan. Most preferably with a outdoor/backyard area. If not, then an open area for the guests with windows for natural lighting. I will like to accommodate at max 150 people. I do not need any type of catering, dj, entertainers because i will be providing those. I simply need a place i can celebrate with my graduating class.

Please reply or e-mail me with suggestions/offers: sasorcastillo@hotmail.com

I will respond quickly.
I am looking for a local club house or a restaurant with a room maybe that we can use for a bridal shower. We want to do our own decorations? Does anyone have any ideas in the Memphis, TN area of where we can do this? Trying to do this at a hotel is proving to be very pricey. Maybe an apartment club house would work or even something on Beale Street? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Millennials in the Workplace
Problem Solving and Communication Skills for Millennial Employees

Managers and business leaders have stated that their business results would improve if their millennial employees had better:

  • problem solving
  • critical thinking
  • oral and written communication skills.
They have also observed that their millennial employees enjoy combining work with games and learning. Thus, we have developed an Education by Entertainment program designed to help management and employees alike. Our initial program is just a few hours long, but is designed to have lasting impact in these critical areas, improving employee safety, productivity and communication. It is also presented in a game show style making it a ton of fun!!!

Please check out our program description, and contact us for more information or to schedule your program, today!!!

Thank you,

Getting Married on very tight BUDGET!
We're doing mainly everything ourselves and we don't have enough time or money. Wedding's in 60 days & we'Re still not able to get what we NEED! WE need a reception hall, mainly, rather have both ceremony and reception hall all together in one place, but not really finding anything worth wild to obtain. My soon to be Wife would like it all set up & we just show up, but when it comes to the food she'd like to have the family & her cook it their selves but I'd like catering if it'd be included in the whole package ie cake food alcohol/liquor, also we both agree we'd like a cash bar minis toast for wedding which we'd pay for either wine or champagne! Overwhelmed with everything & need serious help,$300-$ maybe $1,500 is max we're willing to pay! colors are ivory and regency purple sprinkled w lavender for ceremony and reception. Oh & she hates real flowers!

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.

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
