Hi Kelly -

Congratulations!

It is tough trying to be cost-conscious in your area, but it is possible. Here are a couple suggestions for some flexible space options:

Queens Zoo
New York Hall of Science (might be too pricey)

If you are ok going to Brooklyn, Brooklyn Party Space can do a budget event if your date is available.

Good luck!

Wedding
Hi All,

My BF and I are discussing the good old NYC wedding and finding it near impossible to get a space that isn't the price of our first born child. Any ideas about raw rental lofts versus venue spaces? I'm not going to lie we will most likely have 150-175 people but we are totally ok with buffet/family style food. We live in Astoria and would like to keep it around Queens for the convenience of out of towners but nothing is set in stone. Any help would be much appreciated!

THANKS!
Kelly

Wedding help needed!
Hi,

If you are looking for an inexpensive (read as free) but really nice location, try South Pointe Park in Miami Beach. I am a wedding planner and I have had a lot of my client's ceremonies performed right on the beach or in the park located there.
It looks beautiful in pictures and you won't spend a ton on a location venue.
I can e-mail you some pics of past weddings, just send me an e-mail at Maisy@romanticfloridaweddings.com.
Good luck,
Maisy

Party location

Hey everyone,

My group is in need of a reliable venue that we can host video game tournaments for our group Tampa eSports. We have approximately 150 people who bring their computers to our events to compete against each other in their game of choice, or just casually play games with eachother in a local setting.

A suitable venue will be ~7500+ square feet, Have either ample power capabilities or the ability to park a generator close by. Must also have high speed internet that we would pay to upgrade for the days of our event.

We're hoping to start having two day events, so if this is an option that's great but not required.

Our budget is under $2,000 a day. Our events last about 12-14 hours typically. If anyone has any leads or ideas please let me know here or via email james@tampaesports.com

Looking for a place to rent for my son's 2nd birthday. That I can decorate. In central arkansas. Closer to cabot the better.
I just moved in with my fiancee down here in Fort Walton Beach, FL (on the Gulf Coast) and still new to the area.
I'm estimating a small budget since we spent a lot of money on the move and our new TOWN HOME (no more apartments!)

Now I'm having trouble finding places in the area to host a reception, I have a place in mind were I would LOVE to say our &quotI Do's&quot (The Landing - the park near the Okaloosa bridge - reminds me a lot of my home in GA with the woods and water).
I don't want to have to resort to a wedding planner just because I don't know the area/ have a place big enough to host my own at the house (It can't fit 50 ppl).

Know any good locations around the area of Fort Walton Beach, FL for weddings/receptions, mainly receptions but i'll take either advice.
I'm estimating around 50 people or less, and I'm estimating a budget about 2,000 or less (preferably less *crossing my fingers*).
Any other wedding advice for the Gulf Coast feel free to include.
I'm brand new to wedding planning and have only been to one wedding (back when I was 9-ish??)

The First 10 Steps for Wedding Planning
I see everyone on here saying to get the best, but you don't have to spend money & get the best to have a beautiful wedding for YOU. My wedding? Free DJ, Free Cake, Free Photographer, ~$30 for our favors, Paid $200 for wedding & reception area, had ~200 people attend, Pot luck reception, $200 Dress, $160 for homemade vests for the Groom & his guys (which the were able to KEEP), made my own centerpieces from Goodwill mason jars & our own cut wood pieces, made my own cake topper for $5 & my sister-in-law made us a personalized quilt for everyone to sign. *Note through all of this I am by no means a crafty-person at all!

Do what makes YOU happy. I may have been stressed, but my wedding turned out Exactly how I wanted & I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Going outside, and celebrating her birthday at some picnic spot or her favorite spot where she loves going frequently would be a good idea. Also, if you are planning to give her a birthday gift, then find her favorite stuff. You will be able to know about it by asking her in a clever way.
I'd like to rent a backyard or garden for an anniversary party in the Pasadena/Glendale/Burbank area. I'd appreciate any leads, including a website where people my post their private residence for rental.
Thank you.

Balloons for a wedding, tacky or ok?
Balloons decor designed by a "Professional Balloon Decorator" and one who has taken classes and participated in Classic balloon decor can enhance any ballroom from drab to exquisite.
Example: Clear 3' balloon with white flowers around filled with 10-12 balloons (10") inside the 3' with a collar of balloons underneath then connected to 2 or 4 other 16" balloon with a balloon inside and collars all connected with #40 ribbon and tulle and floating on invisible line behind the head table is breathtakingly beautiful!
just started to look for venues and feeling a little over whelmed with everything. my fiance and i only have the colors picked out and thats all the help he will give me. it feels like this is goin to b a night mare till the wedding

Hi Genni1194596,

I'm not sure what your daughter means when she says she wants something small, but also wants something big. Does she want two events?

If she wants two events, please ask her to describe what she would like for each of the events in maybe a hundred words or so each (including how many friends she wishes to invite). Post her response and the budget you have allocated. With the additional information we should be able to provide more recommendations.

Brio Tuscan Grille is a pretty classy place that could handle your event.

Posticino could also fit the bill.

Hi, can you tell me more about this opportunity?
Hello!

I'm looking for an artist to host a Paint Night in York Beach, ME on Saturday, October 18. Please contact me if interested.
Anyone know of a cheap warehouse or rental to rent for a 40th birthday party? Thanks!
I had a bridal shower planned for August 9th at Arcadia Restaurant in Richmond, VA (I am in Myrtle Beach). After securing the venue in late May/early June, I had the invitations printed and mailed them out. One of the invitees called to say that Arcadia had closed! I confirmed this with the owner, and now I need to scramble to find another venue to hold 25 people on August 9th for a luncheon bridal shower. I would prefer a restaurant or cafe that will provide the food, but I am not against renting a venue and trying to find a caterer either, as long as it is within my budget. I would like to pay no more than $500 to $600 for this 3-hour party. Can anyone offer any recommendations for a good place to hold this party?
Need a venue in Orlando Florida, must be a hotel , for a Christmas Party. Looking for something beautiful and unique but affordable. Any suggestions?
