Hi, So my fiancé and I have been engaged for about 9 months. We are hoping to get married in September or October of 2014. We are spur of the moment type people... so wedding planning is a very daunting task for us. I realize that venues book up way in advance and I feel my window of oppertunity for snagging a good venue is closing. Anyone have venue ideas for ~175 people around the Boston area (within a 30 mile radius)? We are trying to keep our budget around $20,000.
Also, anyone think it would be worth getting a wedding planner on a budget like mine? Not sure how much they cost, but I love the idea of having someone with experience help us out!
