So my brother just became engaged. Good, right? They have a small budget and want to hold it soon (this October) so there's a lot of work to be done in little time. I've been asked to help out to make things work. I figured I'd start by brain storming here, see what comes up.
The word of the day is 'small.' They plan 25-50 people, max. They want to spend 'as little as possible' giving me a budget of 5,000$ at max. They are in Montgomery County and want to avoid Baltimore. The plan (at the moment) is to find an affordable place for the reception, and head to an off site restaurant.
It's a tall order, and I'm going into research mode to do the best for my brother. If anyone has any suggestions, I would LOVE to hear from you. Thank you for your time!
