Need Venue Ideas - HELP!

Ladies,

I am meeting with my fiance this upcoming week to set a "date" and I wanted to discuss venues with him.

We are looking at two basic options : 1. Either the Crystal Coast (Beaufort and Cape Lookout) or going locally in the RDU area.

I can not seem to find a venue in RDU that I love. I want something that has space for an outdoor ceremony and a tented reception. If it could be on water, that would be even better. I do not need a wedding cordinator or food or bar. All that is covered. So that limits the bigger venues that I have fallen in love with, Highgrove, Farrington, Sutherland etc.

Please let me know if you have any ideas. We are working on a budget of 12K.

    There is a hotel i n Durham, might be the doubletree in Durham ... i think they can do outdoor ceremony and tent reception - but I think it is going to be higher than your budget (saw it posted on another board)   it was too high for my budget and mine was twice yours...
    But i also saw you were not including alcohol - which is a big chunk in my budget

    not needing food will limit where you can go , some places will not allow outside food, or only allow certain caterers....
     
    There is a house in downtown cary i believe that would have everything except the water but i know they only have certain caterers too that they work with

  • Thanks :)  Not needing food seems to be causing a bit of a problem and may need to revisit that but still most places that include food also have a bar minimum which we will not meet. I used to work at the house in Cary and would not recommend it personally :)
