Topic:
WEDDING ON TIGHT BUDGET
I'd suggest that you find a great duo space aka some place that will allow you to have the ceremony and reception. Since you're already legally married, not having a ceremony but sharing vows and allowing toasts at the reception is also an option.

The most affordable choice is to have a backyard wedding at a friend's or relative's place. That way you don't have to spend anything on the venue and can focus on decor, food, drinks, and entertainment. The more your family is willing to help the better.

I hope this helps some. For more ideas on how to save for your dream day visit our blog:

30th Birthday Party 60-75 people
Hi there!

I'd suggest you start looking at local hotels. There are quite a few that will allow you to book their space at an hourly rate. If that isn't within your budget try to find local union halls (often used for Bingo).
It's hard planning a wedding on a budget. That's why Jordan Mac Studios offers an intimate venue, with a premium feel. Our studio has an open floor layout, which allows you to decorate the room however you'd like. We also have a premium speaker system, which can save you money on a DJ! Our free wifi will allow you to play music from the internet without any hassle. We also have tables and chairs available for rent, to make your day extra special!

Wedding Venues, any suggestions
I have been trying to find a venue for my wedding which I am planing for next year either mid-August to early September or early October. So far it seems like the total attendants will be around 150. We want an outdoor venue with a shelter or a barn type wedding. Something not in the center of town. Any suggestions of places I could look into?

retreat locations
Our company is interested in locating a place, maybe in Elizabethtown or Lancaster, that would be a good spot for a staff retreat. About 15 people, leaders of our staff who need a day and a half to team build, strategic plan, etc. So, need a room that would allow us to meet; have meals or refreshments and lodging. Any suggestions, not from the area. Thanks!
Would like to rent space for a 50th b-day surprise party with ~30 people near 02474 zip code (Arlington Ma). Will bring food and drinks.
Thank you!

I had a ribbon printed with our names and wedding date on them. I tied them around a single long stemmed rose and laid them in a basket. My groom and I walk around the room and thank each person for coming and gave every woman one of the roses. It was a huge hit and gave us the opportunity to speak to everyone and thank them personally for coming.




what a wonderful idea.
Does anyone know of the property that used to be a event venue for weddings and private parties in Walnut Creek back in early 2000's? It was a large old home, lots of charm, on acreage, outside dance floor, library, kitchen with black and white tile? It was nestled in a residential area from what I recall.

Ring a bell to anyone? I cannot seem to find it now on the internet and it's been too many years to remember where to go.

We are looking for recommendations for officiants that are non judgemental and that can marry us in late September 2017. Do you have any suggestions, please respond. Thank You!!!
My son's wedding was a destination wedding and they figured that guests did not want to have to lug much back home. My son is a musician so we had custom guitar picks made. The Bride and Groom made a donation to a scholarship fund to a summer music camp and created cards that explained the gift and they attached the guitar pick to the cards with glue dots. It was a big hit. The picks were very cheap. The guests appreciated that talented child would get to go to summer camp (I think they sponsored one child), and that they had a small token to take home to remember the wedding.

Mom's 90th Birthday at Stars Rooftop & Grill
Just what to thank Jessica and the staff at Stars Grill on King Street for a memorable 90th Birthday for our mother. The Saturday Brunch was perfect for her and the private room was lovely. We had approximately 55 people and plenty of room to mingle. The tables were set...I just added vases of yellow roses and her birthday cake. The staff went above and beyond to meet our every need. I would highly recommend Stars Grill for a family reunion/party.

Hi all! We are looking for a space for our wedding reception in the summer of 2018 to fit about 150 people. Oh my, I have had a heck of a time finding something that is reasonably priced (venue feed, food, & beverage), or will allow us to supply our own food & beverage. Is there such a thing in Canmore/Banff? Or am I searching for a unicorn? Haha! Thanks in advance for sharing your suggestions!
