Hi, I am a first time poster on the Maryland board, so let me introduce myself. My name is Shyanne, I have been with my fiance for 5 years now (engaged for 3, lol) and now that things are settled down with our two year old we decided it is time to go forth with the wedding plans. But, now, I am lost. I don't know how to plan a wedding and I don't know how to figure out if I am getting duped or not and with all of the venues I have seen in the Maryland area (I live in Montgomery County, which could be my big problem) the cheapest they run after food (most all of the venues I have found don't allow outside catering etc) is coming up to be 16.5 thousand. And that is just the venue/food/alcohol. That doesn't even include my wedding cake. I am a mother, I cannot by any means afford a 16.5 thousand dollar wedding on just the food and venue! Does anyone have other suggestions of places that aren't as expensive? Or places that allow outside catering? I would be ever so grateful. TIA!
