    Well, this is an international board, so I don't think most people will be able to help you with specifics.  But you have lots of options.  Food for different times of day will cost different amounts; lunch costs less than dinner, a non-meal timed event would cost less than lunch.  You need a rain plan, so an indoor/outdoor thing where the party can't fit indoors might not be feasable unless you have an outdoor tent which could make things expensive.  Depending on how many people you're planning on inviting, you might be able to do the party room of a restaurant.

    It really varies.   How many people are planning on having?  What time of day?






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

  • Yes - you'll want this moved to the Atlanta boards because this is an international board.  The one detail you didn't include is how many guests.  Without that number it's hard to say "yes or "no" regardless of the location!

    I suppose it depends on the size of your guest list, as that's one of the biggest factors in the total cost.

  • Hi, I don't know about any houses but have you heard of Roswell River Landing? It is pretty affordable compared to other venues, the rental fee is only $1,600 for a weekend night. You would have to get your own food and drinks but I'm sure you could find someone to cater within your budget! There is a really pretty dock area that couples usually get married on, and then inside there is plenty of space for tables and a dance floor. I was just at a wedding here the other weekend and  it was beautiful!
