Ok, Chicago budget wedding planners...
Does anyone know how expensive the permits are to have a ceremony in Grant park or millenium park?
Also, anyone know of any venues where we could do heavy hors d'oeuvres & open bar (or maybe signature drink & wine/ beer) for 150ppl that would stay under a wedding budget of 10K? I'd really love a evening reception on a Fri or Sat... I know brunches would be cheaper but my family wants a party. :-)
I don't want to give up before I begin but I know this is quite a stretch in Chicago. I was thinking maybe a loft space in the west loop that would let us bring in our own food/ alcohol... Any tips or ideas?
