We haven’t exactly decided what our wedding style will be. I have a large family that I would LOVE to have everyone be able to come, but due to budget, it’s not going to be an option. We just aren’t sure if we want to have a wedding of about 75 with only immediate family and 2 or 3 friends or if we want to invite a larger group of family (extending to some cousins) and having a larger group of friends. Our range currently varies from 75-250 people. So we are needing to have a venue that can accommodate 250 people. This is proving to be a more difficult task than expected and is why the venues are a little bit more difficult to find. Another issue is that we live in South Texas, and I don’t think it is fair to have a reception outside in the month of June. It could be really hot or worse, raining. So that rules out all of the venues that offer additional seating for outside.
If you are planning to have a smaller, more intimate wedding, it should be a lot more reasonable to be within a reasonable budget.
We will see what size of wedding we will decide to have!
