high school graduation
Hello, I am in the process of selecting a venue for my daughter's high school graduation dinner party in Lexington, KY. Like to invite approx 100 - 120 people. I like a venue where they can cater and some we can order from outside. Any ideas or suggestion. Cost is a factor but not a major one. I also like to have a photographer and a media person.

I'm struggling here, I've been looking for a venue for 300 guests, for my wedding reception. Planning on getting married September 29, 2018.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if anyone in the BOSTON area (surrounding areas welcome) knows any venues/all inclusive packages within this price range please let me know.



Signed,

You are out of your mind! You can't have a wedding for 300 guests on that kind of budget! That's only $6.67 - $10 a person! You can't even feed that many people for that budget much less rent the venue, decorate, and everything else. Cut the guest list to 20 people, get married at the courthouse, and treat everyone to a nice luncheon at a local restaurant.

My Daughter's First Birthday
Hi Everyone,
The original plan for celebrating my daughter's birthday was to be held out our house. But, we are 3 months away from her birthday and I fear our home won't be move-in ready by that time. Our temporary rental just isn't big enough to host 50-80 family members. Does anyone know of a venue where we can choose our caterer and alcohol is allowed? We don't mind a 45 minute drive from Thornton as our family is scattered all across Colorado. I really appreciate the help!

Whimsical Baby Shower
I'm looking for a venue to have my daughters Baby Shower for 40-50 people. She is having a girl and is thinking about a whimsical theme. ( Tea party ) We are going to do our own food, as we have family members in the catering business.
looking for a place to rent 2/25/2017 for my husbands 60th b-day. looking to have about 35-40 guests. not to expensive. don't need it catered just need the space and tables and chairs. if possible a kitchen as well, but not a deal breaker if it doesn't have one
I booked a venue but it turns out it is too small for our now 100 guest. I am looking to book a affordable space for my ceremony and reception.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Centerpieces take home or rental???
Ive been in the wedding business for 17 years, the days your mom is remembering have pretty much been long gone for awhile in our area. New England. Even when the couple has the Dj offer or provide a game to give away centerpieces most of the time the caterer ends up cleaning them up since they are left behind. It's not a "thing" like it was 30 years ago!
Cool location! I will recommend this to my friend.

Hi! I'm looking to host a 30th Birthday Party at a venue in Chesapeake, Norfolk or Virginia Beach that could host approx. 40 people and allow for a DJ for a dance party. I would like to space to allow bringing alcohol onsite or have alcohol available for purchase as well as food. This would be February 18th from approx. 7pm-11pm. Any suggestions on venues?

Thank you!

50Th Birthday Party
Okay thank you . I would pay $2,000 if it comes with all the options. I wouldn't pay over $1,200 just for the rental of a venue and that is all I get . That's what I meant.. It can be in The Cobb, Douglasville area's.
Be early, have lots of batteries, nothing goes exactly the way you plan things, have fun.

We recently got engaged and are trying to stay away from getting into debt because of a party. We are in Tampa, FL and if anyone has any good suggestions of places that are all inclusive and willing to stay open a little bit later than normal we will appreciate it. Or if you know of any places that we can hold the ceremony and reception we can do the decorating and catering ourselves. We would like to stay between $5000-7000 if it's all inclusive. Any suggestions will be a great help as to how to get started in the planning process...Thanks in advance!

50Th Birthday Party
Hello, I am an event planner and decorator and I can tell you that it will be challenging to find what you are looking for. I have reserved several venues within the Atlanta city limits and outside of the city limits to find what you are looking for and they all are pretty much over $ 1,500 unless you branch out to Douglasville, Austell and maybe Cobb.

I am looking for a nice lounge with big TVS and comfortable seating to throw my Superbowl birthday party on Superbowl Sunday, preferably a place where we can bring in our own food.
Need a cool meeting place that says Austin. The people coming are exchange students and those that make their travels possible.
I expect anywhere from 15-25 people. Perhaps a restaurant with a back room. We will be having lunch, not sure where.

Dear Concerned Bride,
There are venues in the surrounding areas around Boston that will give you a lot of good deals. If you are interested here at the Holiday Inn Marlborough we have great price packages (some of the most affordable I have seen) Give me a call. If we are not right for you I can certainly recommend some other places as well.

STAY YOU.TM
As a wedding venue owner and wedding planner I have seen it all. I have also been married and lost a spouse, so I get the "live each day as if it were your last". That may be hard to do, but is SO important. If you really love your future spouse, the details won't matter on the day of your wedding. The bliss of it all will overwhelm you. The biggest thing I see ruining weddings, is STRESS. So, whatever causes you stress, work on finding someone or a way to handle that part, before the wedding day. Whether it is a wedding planner or going to an all inclusive that does everything (except the photographer), or keeping it simple and being a DIY because you love doing that kind of thing. Plan to be able to do nothing but enjoy your friends and family that day. Seriously, NOTHING! Plan to have nothing really important to get taken care of at least 3 days before your wedding, preferably a week. We now offer all inclusive weddings because I felt so bad seeing all these stressed out brides, grooms, and mothers on the best day of their lives. Best wishes, Terian Farms
