I am recently engaged and trying to plan an affordable wedding for 200 (my fiance and i have very large families).
Must haves are: 200 people, open bar, regular dinner (buffet or plated, just not "cocktail reception"). I will consider doing a non-saturday night wedding if i have to, but i'd like to see what is out there first before i start making compromises.
Anyone get married and have a large group reception in the Bethesda/Frederick/Baltimore MD areas?
Max budget for everything is $25K so i'm thinking i need to keep venue/food/drinks at $15K
