Hey all! I'm recently engaged - Christmas day to be exact. We were trying to enjoy it and were planning to wait a while to start figuring things out... But then I realized that most of the places nearby book almost 1.5-2 years out! (Sigh...)
So we hopped on the wagon and started looking... We're going to have about 250 guests (no more, hopefully less!) so that limits our options. We're aiming for September or October of 2013, probably October though. I like fall colors.
Everything is extremely expensive, and right now it's seemingly impossible to have this wedding anywhere. I'm looking for advice on affordable but nice venues for a reception. Ideally, I'd like to have the reception & ceremony in the same place.
Any suggestions? Anyone at all?
I failed to mention that I'm really looking in the Scranton-Wilkes Barre area. I don't really want my guests to have to travel at all.
