I need some help fellow Minnesotans!
I am planning a wedding for January 2 (ideally) for under $10,000 total (venue, food, photographer, flowers, etc). I am stuck on the venue. I have contacted several places and have heard back from some but they are all very VERY expensive. I need some suggestions on places. Ideally we would have the ceremony and the reception at the same place to ease the need for guests to drive around Minneapolis/St Paul in January (we all know that can be difficult). I would like it to be classic and elegant, but I'm also willing to put in some hard DIY hours to make that happen.
Suggestions?? I would be eternally grateful!!
