So I am in a bit of a panic! We were planning our wedding to be at Coxhall Gardens in September and had paid our deposit sometime last year. We had our first sit down meeting today to start hashing out menu, linens, etc and found out about a ton of extra fees and charges that we didn't realize would be added, and our estimated cost just for venue and catering is more than our intended budget for the whole wedding! My fiance and I are trying to figure out what to do, as we dont have the means to continue with what we were planning with them. His parents have given us a very generous amount towards the wedding already and my parents are not in the position to be of much assistance financially.
Backstory aside, does anyone know of any reasonable, rustic locations for about 100-125 guests around the Indianapolis area? Has anyone else had an experience like this where you had to change everything 6 mos out?
