Hi, here is my dilemma. I am hoping someone out there might help?
My Fi and I put down a deposit (2k) on a hotel venue, specifically the Sainte Claire in their small room. Granted, I knew it was small but I hadn't seen it set up for a reception. We are having around 96 guests, let's say around 100 will be there. I wanted a downtown wedding because we are getting married at the St. Joseph's Cathedral just a few blocks down. I'm not a rich girl, so other places around the area were too expensive for us. The grande ballroom at the Sainte Claire is beautiful, but too much for us. My parents had their 25th wedding anniversary at David's Banquet in Santa Clara, which is very reasonably priced. Now I want to have the reception there. Our wedding is scheduled for July 10, 2010. Save-the-dates have been made, (no indication of venue of course) but have not worked on invitations yet. What to do at this point? Yikes. Thanks for reading!
