My fiance and I are planning a wedding for October 2012. We haven't booked a venue yet, but we want the wedding on the water (I should say the OCEAN, because we don't go for lakes or ponds or rivers
). We are going to look at Amarante's and probably Anthony's on Friday, and I have heard great things about both places.
Problem is, I have also heard that Amarante's has a minimum of 100 guests. We would LOVE a wedding there, but we stretched our guest list (invited plus-ones, added people solely because they invited us to their weddings, let my parents add their close friends) and we still only have 85 people on the list. I don't want to go crazy and invite people I don't even care about (nor do I want to pay for them), but I have heard that MOST of the venues I will visit will have a 100-guest minimum.
Does anyone know of nice, ocean-front venues that do not have a minimum guest count?
