Vecoma at the Yellow River
Hi we are looking to rent a hall for a sixteenth birthday bash for at least a hundred dollars or less that allows loud music, alcoholic beverages, and that allows up to thirty guests. We will need it for up to three hours at the most. We probably more then likely wont have any alcohol at this birthday due to having teenagers under the age of eighteen but we would like to just know in case any of the adults invited brings any alcohol. Also we don't need catering as we will be bringing our own food for this party. The date we need a hall for is Friday April 7th.

wedding under 5000 budget
I'm trying to plan a wedding with a budget of $5000. I want to include catering, venue, bar services with table,chairs,as well. can I make this happen in Durham NC. I need help smh
Hi, I'm a photographer in the Denver area who has seen just about everything under the sun and there are tons of great downtown locations for rehearsal dinners... I don't know where the wedding is being held as you won't want to pick a place too far away from it, but here are some ideas: Jacksons (near Coors Field) has an amazing rough top patio and I went to a rehearsal dinner there once for a friend's wedding! It's sports theme so probably would be good for a guy into sports. Fado's Irish pub also has a back room that you can rent out. The chophouse (which would be a little spendy) is amazing! For something different what about renting out a bowling alley! I did a corporate event last Fall at Lucky Strike in the Denver Pavillion (there are other locations in Denver). It was awesome! They provided awesome food and tons of entertainment for the guests: bowling, pool, darts and more! If you like that idea Dave & Busters, Fat Cats would also be good choices for that idea! Hope that helps! Contact me too if you may still need photo or video services! ~Jamie
Hi I'm a wedding photographer and videographer in the Denver area and I saw your post. I've seen just about everything so I have a few ideas for you. The first one is the cutest budget friendly place that I've ever done a wedding. It is in the small town of Louviers just South of Denver. It's called the Louviers Clubhouse and it's around $300 for the whole day! No kidding! You;ll have to google it for this forum doesn't allow links.

Parks in Denver are: Washington Park which has the boat house, Cheeseman Park which has the Pavilion. And those are the best options for Denver. I hope that helps... contact me if you are interested in our photo and/or video services.

Texas will the be best and it will be within your budget. It is my engagement and wedding place and I am sharing my personal experience. We booked House Plantation, an all-inclusive wedding venue. We have limited guests and booked one hall, as it was sufficient for our guests and within our budget too. Here they have good caterers, waiters and nothing to worry about bride up, as they have all the facilities. http://houseplantation.com/

55th Birthday Party
Does anyone know of a venue in the Woodstock, Acworth, or Kennesaw area that can hold up to 150 people where you can bring a car inside to display? If that's not possible they would have an amazing entrance outside where the car could be displayed.

Thanks.

Rent a Hall, Space or Room for Birthday Party!
Hi. I need a hall or space for around 30 people with dj.. food and drinks we will carry.
Hello out there!

I am a soon-to-be bride! My fiance and I are looking for a spacious location for a cocktail wedding reception. We both are dancers and visual artists so we need lots of space to dance. Because of our modest budget we would like to spend less or no more than $500. Any thoughts. The location we want for our ceremony is midtown on the east side (not far from Grand Central Terminal) so we'd like the reception location to be nearby (or not too far of a drive) from there.

Signed,

concerned bride to be



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!
