We went to see the GYC yesterday. Gorgeous inside and out! We met with Jordan Caterers; the official caterers for the club. Marissa from Jordan's was a pleasure to meet with. Steve and I both loved the place (yes, we've finally agreed 100% on a place). We felt so comfortable we seriously didn't want to leave! So what's the problem? Well we thought 180 was their max capacity, which is it, but it would take a chunk of the dance floor away. 150-160 would be far more reasonable/comfortable. We had over 200 people on our tentative list. We certainly could reduce the list by cutting out people from our work. Steve has about 15 from work and I have over 30. But our jobs have been asking us about the wedding and we are really close to some of the people there. Can you pick and choose? There is no set price but would run us at about the same as anthony's/cascade/saybrook point but you get to customize your own menu so it could go lower or of course much higer! I want to see how much they typically are able to give us in our price range (I've heard they're more expensive than other places) There is a hefty rental fee but with fewer guests we'd be spending (hopefully) less money elsewhere to make the difference (less tables/less centerpieces/less people/less food/less favors/less invites.) So, thought I'd come get some knottie input on Guilford Yacht Club, Jordan's, J cakes (their cake vendor), and drastically cutting the list in effort to get the venue you want. TIA!
