A friend of mine just got engaged this past week. Unfortunately, I got married last year in North Carolina and so don't know much about the potential vendors in this area. I am trying to to help her as much as possible on a short timetable (about 7 months).
Obviously the first step is finding a venue. Any recommendations for venues for ceremony/reception would be greatly appreciated. Needs to hold about 100 people and have a dance floor. She strongly prefers a venue with an inhouse caterer or a prefered caterer that works with the venue on a regular basis. Right now she's leaning toward having the ceremony and all at a hotel for convenience. She's looking at either Oct. 9 or Nov. 13 and the budget is probably going to be around $100/head.
Thank you for any and all recommendations in advance!!!
