I am planning my wedding for August 2012, and would like the ceremony and reception to be outdoors at the beach. we are looking for about 125 guests with a full dinner and no alcohol. I have been looking at numerous locations online and with a budget of about 1500-1800 for the location the choices have been slim. I plan to use The Old Spaghetti Factory for the catering, but I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for the venue. I cannot do the Zlac club because they only allow catering from a few caterers and I need everything to be gluten and dairy free, and everyone wanted to charge lots of extra $ for that. I may have found 1 place, the San Diego Rowing Club, however, i have to bring my own tables, chairs, and linens. I was wondering how all you other brides handled the drop off & pick up arrangements for that stuff when the location doesn't let you keep the stuff there overnight. I was also wondering what rental companies you guys used.
thank you so much!
