Wedding 5/30/2015 (note: non-negotiable due to school finals of family members, memorial weekend before it, yada yada - this is our wedding right? Why must we cater to others? lol )
Anyway, I am having a SUPER hard time finding a venue that is within our 10K budget and desires for that time. I guess in the wedding world 7 months before a wedding is NOT considered enough time to book a venue.
As for what we want... Not knocking VFWs or the like, but we like the uplighting/elegant/clubby look of the Profile Event Center, A'bulae, etc. That being said, we are thinking of possibly doing a tent wedding if our venue choices fall through. We know tent weddings can be quite the budget breaker!
Our issue is that we do not have a place in the cities to host it at. We have a family farm in Mankato that is BEAUTIFUL but being that my ENTIRE family is from California - the wedding would pull them away from the cities where most will be vacationing during our wedding time.
Does anyone have any ideas of outdoor places to hold a tented wedding reception with a LOW rental fee? A farm...a park, etc. etc. Guest list 100 MAX!
