I am just starting to plan my wedding and have no idea on where to begin. I know that I would like my wedding and the recep. in Louisville KY. I would like to find a place where we can get married by my preacher and have the reception at the same place. Please help.

Dear Michelle 43
Do a search for one of these sites in your area:
Knights of Columbus
They usually have a stage, tables and chairs, air conditioning, a kitchen and rest room. This would be perfect for you. Some of them may have a nice lawn and you could marry outside. If you don't find a listing in your local phone book or the web, I suggest you visit a nearby real estate office who would have access to all public spaces and buildings of these kinds. You may have a non-profit organization such as a community center with a park that may have a party or rec room you can convert.
There are several great online checklists for Brides. That will help you with your overall budget and time frame of tasks to be done. Just remember that your venue is not your only expense and budget for all items in the wedding.

Start by making a budget sheet and listing venues in the area. Then based on your budget that is set for the venue. Call/ go see the venues and choose from that. Great starting point.
