So my FH and I are from the greater philadelphia area, but it doesn't suit us very well. After I finish school and he finishes his enlistment with the Air Force, we intend on moving to either TN or KY. We just started looking at venues and are looking for something with a rustic country feel. We're pretty sure we will hold our wedding at one of two places. Gettysburg pa (3hr drive) or Sevierville tn (10hr drive). Here comes the great debate. I want a small wedding, the tn venue allows a max of 50. The pa venue requires a minimum of 75 for a Friday/Sunday and 100 for a Saturday. He comes from a very large family that isn't exactly close knit. We could easily fill a 150 person reception but just aren't looking to spend that kind of money. We rather have something more intimate and treat our guest extremely well. At the same time we're afraid the tn venue may be financially out of reach for some of the attendants and guests. Anyone out there have some words of wisdom out of personal experience?
