Ok, so I am new to the knot. It seems like the discussion board is very helpful! But I have been searching for a venue for 2 weeks straight now. I have literally been to about ten, and only one has made me see "Wow." Unfortunately, the price made me say wow : ( too. The venue was 1,000, but the minimum for food was $16, 500. There is no way I am paying that much for food. I have a honeymoon to go on and a home to purchase. So, with that being said, my budget is 8000 including food. If anyone knows a venue (with water if possible), please let me know!
