Cheap Maryland Reception Venue
OK...this search is exhausting me! It's keeping me up at night, it's occupying all of my time during the day, and it's the one thing holding me up from being able to progress with my wedding planning.
I NEED A VENUE!!!!
If you know of any place in Maryland that meets most of the following criteria, PLEASE let me know!
- Needs to accomodate 150 to 200 people
- A good place for the ceremony and reception
- Loose catering restrictions
- Indoor and outdoor options
- $2k-ish or less rental fee
- Not a standard banquet hall
- In or around PG, Charles, Montgomery, or Howard Counties, Anne Arundel Counties
Places I have checked out or am still considering:
- Snow Hill Manor (too small)
- Woodlawn Manor (site coordinator has been on a super long vacation)
Any help or suggestions that you have would be greatly appreciated! I'm dying to get my date and venue settled.
He put a ring on it...now what??
We have been engaged for just over a year now. Though Im excited about being married, the thought of wedding planning had me frozen with fear. We dont have a huge pot of money to work with, and I knew that planning a wedding would be tedious, frustrating, costly, nerve wracking, and did I mention tedious? lol.
I was never one of those girls that had the details of her wedding documented and tied up in a neat little binder waiting for Mr. Right to come along and pop the question. The proposal, though wed talked about getting married, literally came out of left field. So in addition to being strapped financially, I felt completely overwhelmed by the idea and task of planning a wedding.
As the year went by, of course I was asked time and time again, when is the wedding. Id see people at 4th of July cookouts, then at Christmas parties, and still not have any new updates for them regarding the wedding plans. Then FINALLY I just couldnt take it any longer. There has GOT to be a way to plan a frugal wedding and still make it be an event I would look back on and cherish.
Ive seen so many girlfriends and family members spend aaaaaalll this time and money on these dream weddings, only to see them stressed out, and sometimes disappointed, because one thing or another didnt turn out quite how they expected. Ive been to enough weddings to know what I liked, didnt like, and never want to have happen to me when its my time to plan this special event.
I also am known as the do-it-yourself queen. Im a jack of all crafts, and a master at none. But I like the idea of doing for free or for cheap the things that stores or other people will charge you an arm and a leg for.
So after a year of being engaged, and almost having to sedate my mother, I decided to get on the stick. Where theres a will, and parents willing to put up a few dollars, theres a way! And Im going to find it!
