Hi Everyone, we are new here. Just got engaged on the 16th of January. We are already getting started planning/researching a few things, the big item being budget and venue. We are planning on a summer/fall wedding for 2016 as it appears everything we have come across so far is booked up for 2015 and we wouldn't want to go much passed the second week of September, so it does not leave much time for planning.
I am hoping there might be some suggestions out there to help us get the venue research started.
We have set a firm'ish budget of $20,000 for the whole wedding, currently we are looking at a guest list of 150 people and we know we want to get married and/or have the reception on some kind of beachfront/waterfront venue. We are looking in Cape Cod, MA and southern NH coast line so far and it is looking like it will be very hard to maintain the budget.
Hope you can help!
