Beginner November 2020

Hello fellow brides,

So I got engaged a few months ago and we are starting our wedding planning. We are from Long Island and I'm having a real hard time finding a venue that is budget friendly and beautiful. We have a budget up to $15,000 with an estimated guest list of 150 (not final). We are considering making it an adults only reception however we were still debating. I would like to bring my own food and alcohol. Im open to LI, Queens, Brooklyn or Manhattan. Any suggestions on a venue?

    Have you looked into community centers, fire halls, or VFWs? I’m not from your area but usually those are the most budget friendly. If you have a caterer in mind already, you could ask for a list of some of the venues they’ve worked at too.

    I have considered a VFW however they are strict with the decorating policies. I will look into the community centers and fire halls. Thanks for advice.

    Welcome to the WeddingWire community Diane! Congratulations on your engagement!

    Sarah offered you some great suggestions, you could also look into some local restaurants that you could hire out for your reception.

    Are you hoping to have an indoor or outdoor wedding?
