Old Married lady needs some help

Hi ladies, 

Its been a while since I've been here. I was married back in 2009 and this was my go to place while planning. I have been a little out of touch with the wedding scene for a while so I need some help. My brother in law is getting married and his soon to be wife asked me to help plan the wedding since its really not her up of tea. They are on a budget so we need to scale back some... I have a few questions for whoever will help me... 

Who is your DJ?

Where is your reception? Is there a number min/max of guests, room fees... (they are getting married on a Friday) 

popular color palates now? Its a June 2012 wedding.

Name your florist and photog?

Any other advise, suggestions or whatever would be super helpful! 

Thanks ladies!!

    We had our reception at Candia Woods in Candia, there was no room fee (built into food costs)  I'm not sure of the minimums for a Friday but the room holds 135 max

    Where is your reception? Is there a number min/max of guests, room fees... (they are getting married on a Friday) 

    Our reception is at Atkinson Country Club.  I'm not sure about the min/max guests but I know it will be cheaper if they are having a wedding on a Friday.

    Where is your reception? Is there a number min/max of guests, room fees... (they are getting married on a Friday) Grappone Conference Center, Concord.  They have 3 sections of ballroom, so you can customize to fit your wedding, though I'm not sure of exact numbers.  No room fee- just pay for the food.

    In Response to Old Married lady needs some help:
    We're going pretty "small scale" so hopefully this will help:



    Who is your DJ? Scott from Disc Go Entertainment (we know him through a friend, came with great recommendations, very budget friendly)

    Where is your reception? pat's peak - again, one of most budget friendly places for the # of guests we have (135) but very beautiful and they have been very accomodating and helpful so far

    Is there a number min/max of guests, room fees... (they are getting married on a Friday)  There was a min $ spend on food (does not incl beverages), but I don't remember what for Friday. Saturday was $4500 min. Friday was really affordable too. Check out the website for room rental fees, it wasn't bad at all.

    popular color palates now? Its a June 2012 wedding.  Anything! I'm in love with the simple black and white, but you can do anything you want!

    Name your florist and photog? Florist: ideas in bloom - she is wonderful!

    Any other advise, suggestions or whatever would be super helpful!  Thanks ladies!!

    Our DJ is Dave Lynch- I found him from a lot of reviews here!

    Our ceremony & reception will be at Chuch Landing in Meredith, NH. There is a 150 people minimum for our Saturday night reception-i'm not sure about Friday night.

    We are getting married in October, but using a green & ivory with some silver colors. I think you can use any color at anytime :)
