Venue help please!
My fiance and I are paying for our wedding ourselves so our budget is tight. We want a wedding of about 100-125 people and we want to spend less than 30k. We have looked at a lot of places that just seem to cost a fortune. My friend managed to find a caterer in Lancaster and get her food around 30 pp plus alcohol but her venue allowed her to shop around for caterers. The vibe we want is something like Aldie Mansion or a place where we can have a white tent or something. We want it to be homey but rustic. That being said aldie was nice but we worried if it rained everyone would be cramped for cocktail hour and the menu was 110+. Does anyone have any ideas what we can do? I feel like we have been looking so long I am starting to lose hope.
