Hi, I'm new to this forum.
My fiance and I recently moved to North Carolina for careers. My parents live in Gettysburg, PA and his friends and family live closer to that region. Our problem is that my fiance wants to have the reception venue closer to them, but I don't know where to look. We are on a budget since we just started work and our wedding party is roughly 60 people.
We are getting married in a church in Emmittsburg, MD (Northern Frederick County). We originally planned to have our venue at Fort Richie in Washington County, but unfortunately the place shut down over an injury lawsuit. We are at a loss and are so bummed out since it was a quiet, private location with a lake.
I am nervous about having my reception in Gettysburg since our wedding is in July 2014. July is a HUGE tourist month due to the anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg and I do not want to be in the middle of crowds on my wedding day.
Can someone help me out with an idea? Thanks.
