Yes you read that correctly 175 guests, my fiance and I have large families and plenty of close friends. I;m looking for a venue that will accomodate our party size as well as our wallets! We are in the Philadelphia area so we are hoping to stay on the eastern side as the majority of our guests will be coming from New York/North Jersey-hopefully the commute won't be for than 3 hours.
We initally found this LOVELY place, Casino at Lakemont Park in Altoona, PA but that would be a 5 hour drive for our guests. We are trying to make it so they could just drive down and back with an option
to stay overnight, not a requirement because more likely our wedding will be on a Friday or Sunday (gotta take advantage of those off-peak prices!).
Our wedding planned for spring 2014 but I would like to get a jump on things because time travels and before you know it venues will be filling up!
