Hi there! I'm in the Atlanta,GA area and we got engaged on New Year's. We've got some serious sticker shock with the prices that the venues sites are trying to charge. Our budget is $5,500 for 60 guests and we are open to all options. We can do all the decorations and my dress is going to be a gift from a guest. Any help would be amazing!!

Thank you




Were you able to find a venue to work within your budget? If so, where did you go and what did you do to keep your cost down?

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!

Wedding Cakes
I wish I had done two tastings before deciding on my caterer. I went to one and chose them because they tasted good, but the company itself was not. They got our order wrong and ended up bringing the wrong flavors to our wedding. The cupcakes we had purchased were around $500.00 and I should have gone with someone who charged a bit more and who would have put a personal touch into the design and into what we wanted.

Looking for a venue for a Fundraiser Vendor Fair
Hello! We would definitely encourage you to browse our Concord, NC page for nearby venues: https://www.eventective.com/concord-nc/corporate-meetings.html

Possibly consider the Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation or the The Carole Hoefener Center. For Concord proper, we would recommend: Hampton Inn & Suites Concord/Charlotte or The Speedway Club at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Thanks!

That one will be awesome. I like the idea. Simple and cute. Also budget friendly.




Definitely budget friendly! Another great idea is using Mason Jars to hold flowers with stones as a base... you can spray paint the stones or keep them natural.

Hire a photo booth company. Not only will your guest stay entertained and have fun, the photo strip personalized with your wedding details makes a great memento and it's a wedding favor sure to please everyone! Best luck on your wedding day and may there be many happy anniversaries ahead!!
We're planning a '90 years young' birthday party for my father-in-law in April of 2018. He lives in Cameron Park and we want something closer to Sacramento because many family and friends will be flying in for the party. We are looking at hotels, halls, and wineries. Any suggestions?

Hi everyone!

I am looking for a location in Concord, NC for close surrounding areas to hold a Fundraiser Vendor Fair. We are looking at November on Saturday or Sunday. Preferably not the first weekend or Thanksgiving weekend. We will have a minimum of 30 vendors on site if not more. We are looking for a location willing to donate the space or give us a really great rate to rent the space. This event will be food free. The fundraiser is for the CURED Foundation. They raise money to fund research for Eosinophilic diseases. We have a lot of families in the area effected by these diseases that would benefit from research. Please contact me if you have a location willing to work with us or know of a venue that I can contact that is close by.

Thank you so much for your help!

Wedding Cakes
I have been asked many times why Wedding cakes seem so expensive. I have begun to understand the same basic theme; brides want a wedding cake tailored to their vision at supermarket prices. Harsh comment? Maybe. However; most brides do not look at the whole picture involved in making, "just a cake." Anyone can absolutely go to the grocery store bakery and order a wedding cake....if they want a single or two tiered, if they want one that has been made and frozen months before and pulled out the day before you need it, if they want just a plain cake with maybe one or two decorations on it, if they want a McDonald's like atmosphere..meaning drive through type orders. Wedding cakes are personal, they are a reflection of the brides vision for her cake or theme of the wedding. You can not get that from a supermarket store. Supermarkets are based on volume selling, not quality selling. Keep in mind that every bride should always have a tasting. You want to know that you are getting a quality cake. I always recommend no less than two tastings, for two reasons; you want to get an idea of who can bake what flavors and how they taste and you want to know if you can click with the baker and be able to contact them when you need to. There are many factors that go into making that special wedding cake the bride has been looking forward to and the biggest cost is time and labor. A simple cake, one tiered with a few flowers and cake topper is going to cost much less than a four tiered cake with multiple flowers, piping and different flavors for each tier. Remember, the baker has to make a living also or he/she would not be able to survive in business. The more intricate and detailed, the more expensive. It is customary to charge per slice, however; not all bakers follow tradition and there is nothing wrong with that. Wedding cakes can range anywhere from $300 to well over $1000! A happy medium and within competitive range is usually somewhere between $460-$750. There are bakers who will charge much, much less...but those bakers are only concerned with getting business and not the quality they put out. The old saying, you get what you pay for, holds true. Have a budget in mind when searching for a wedding cake, but be prepared to the possibility that you may go over that budget if you have you heart set on a particular cake design. Hope this helps answer this question.

Hi all,

I'm looking for an intimate, quintessential New Orleans style courtyard for a private dinner, for my sister's 40th birthday in April 2018. It is a very small group, 15-20.

Suggestions??

Congratulations! Perhaps you should consider having a Sweet Treat Table set up for your Wedding. The display adds an amazing touch of decor, since it will be coordinated with your theme/colors. Your guest will enjoy the display and are able to help them self to sweet treats to enjoy at the reception or take home. It's the perfect favor!

I would recommend a compilation DVD showing excerpts of funny moments and/or photos. The DVD should run no longer than 3 minutes in order to hold one's attention. I can add text, titles, music and special effects to enhance delivery. The DVD is attractively packaged, yet affordable. Contact me as I would love to provide this service for you. Each copy would only cost $10.00. The editing fee will vary based on the condition and length of the source footage- But still very much affordable!
We offer a unique service in that we help you capture precious moments from old media format such as VHS and 8mm tapes. We also scan photographs of any size to a DVD as well. We customize to your liking by adding text, titles, logos, music and special effects.

Call us today as we have state of the art equipment and our staff is courteous and friendly! We look forward to hearing from you soon! Call us or drop into our studio office located at 815 Main Street, St. Joseph, Michigan!
Front Street Cafe is a unique full service neighborhood Cafe open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

This unique space houses a coffee shop, fresh juice bar, European beer garden, outdoor terrace with garden seating, indoor & outdoor bars and private upstairs event spaces. We are currently working on our latest event space to open in October!


Our second floor can accommodate 60 seated or about 75 for a cocktail style reception. Our new event space to open in October will be able to accommodate about 50 seated. These spaces will be able to open up into each other creating one large event space upstairs to accommodate 100-125.

Rehearsal Dinner
I am looking for a cool venue for a rehearsal dinner. It is a large group (over 100) so we are thinking of doing pizza and wings. The church is Saint James Catholic Cathedral215 N Orange Ave.
Best advice l've ever received is look at that which annoys you, is it something you can tolerate for the rest of your life? Don't think you will change your spouse, you must be willing to love them as they are. lf you don't love that person heart, mind, body and soul, then keep seeking.
I need to find a lower-cost venue that can hold an influx of approximately 200-400 people for a Woman's Business Owner/Holiday Bazaar on 12/2/2017. I would like a location with a kitchen, if possible. I am open to areas within a 25 mile radius of Hershey, PA. Any ideas on places I can do an event like this?

Wedding Venue for a Wedding for 50.
Hi. I am looking for a venue that is a bit romantic for an outdoor courtyard wedding in or near Cold Spring. We are planning on having a dinner served afterward. I have spoken with The Blue Heron but it appears they are booked for the day we are searching for. We are disappointed. My fiance has a lake place in Richmond but we are not real familiar with venues in this area, Paynesvile, ect. Thank you in advance for your help. BTW we also thought about the Pillar Inn but we would have to do all the set up, tear down and clean up. Not what we want to do on our honeymoon night.

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!
