My fiance and I are looking at getting married in Savannah as a "destination" wedding since he is from Seattle, and I am from Atlanta. We visited Savannah this weekend and both agree that it is a beautiful spot that our guests from ATL and Seattle would love to visit.
We are having a difficult time finding wedding venues that accomodate large numbers (250-300) that aren't extremely expensive. I thought we had a decent sized budget, but I had a planner tell me that we needed $80K at least to have a wedding of that size! I know she has to be wrong.
Any suggestions for places that can accomodate those numbers? We loveeee the Westin Harbor ballroom/lawn but are afraid that will be so expenisve by the time you have a full bar, etc. Also, any suggestions of places that allow you to bring your own alcohol and accomodate that many guests?
Thanks in advance!!
