I am having such a hard time finding a reasonably priced venue that can hold ~300 people, and will allow us to bring in our own caterer and alcohol. Would love a rustic site with indoor/outdoor entertaining areas, but since that is the 'popular' theme of the past few years, most places we've found like that are either already booked, too small, or ridiculously overpriced.
We will not need a ceremony space at the venue.
Can anyone offer any suggestions? Would like to be at least within 20 mins from the 270 loop (in any direction), as we will be having a lot of out-of-town guests as well.
