I am planning my wedding for early 2013 (Feb, Mar or April). We are on a TIGHT budget. $5,000 is our budget for EVERYTHING. I have been looking over and over for venues for our reception that are affordable for our budget. We really want a venue that will allow us to bring in our own alcohol as we plan to make our own wine and beer. The places in particular that I have looked at and am considering are Bayside Boardwalk and the Ward Pavilion in Wildwood Preserve. We are expecting around 100 people. I want something elegant and beautiful but inexpensive...I know this doesn't seem possible, but I am hoping for suggestions.
I appreciate any help!
