Any Russians throwing a wedding in NYC? I need some planning advice

My Mother is being a pain but not surprising. She wants a huge wedding, extravangant, lots of vodka, etc. I'm guessing other Russians are in a similar boat so can you give me an idea of how much you're spending on alcohol and size of wedding. So far I have 150 on my list. 

I wasn't planning on doing a big all out wedding so I have no idea where to start and I don't want to ask my Mom before I have some ideas already. The more I ask her the more she takes over. Also, anyone else have a meddling Mom?

  • Try The Water Club.  It has beautiful NYC east river views.  It has an old-world feel about it but modern ammenities.  I think prices start at $150 per person plus tax.  They do both Jewish and Christian events there and have kosher and non-kosher meals.
