Thanks for the previous help on churches... I think we are making a choice this weekend! ( I will let you all know!!)
Now I am REALLY stressing on reception. FI is really set on 300 people, I've been trying to talk him down, but both of us have big families and such. We are having trouble finding anywhere that can hold that many people...
We are open to banquet centers (Knights of Columbus, Elks Lodge, etc) that we can rent the space and then spruce it up.
