My fiance and I are beginning to plan our Fall 2011 wedding and are having trouble finding a great reception spot. We're not SUPER picky but here's the criteria we're *trying* to meet:
- has an outdoor space (large terrace, deck, etc), or is outside and would allow us to rent a large tent to put up so we didn't have to worry about the weather
- isn't ridiculously expensive. We know we'll have to pay a pretty penny to have a nice reception in MSP, but we'd like to keep it somewhere around $8-10,000.
- can accommodate btwn 300-400 people (dining, not just for the dancing part)
We had thought of Calhoun Beach Club, but I can't seem to find out how expensive they are.... we also had read about the St. Anthony Main Event Center. Does anyone have any thoughts/reviews of these places? Or any other suggestions? Anything would be appreciated!
