I am having a very small wedding in November, and in an effort to ease travel burden on family members from Alabama (his mother and daughter) and New Jersey (us, my mother and daughter), we're meeting in the middle and having it in North Carolina. I have never spent time in NC so I am flying completely blind here.
We are on a shoestring budget and we are not having a typical reception... we would like to take everyone out for a celebratory dinner. I was hoping to find a couple of restaurants to look at in the $25-30 price point range. Fancy enough to not look ridiculously out of place in my dress (it's not very fru-fru, but it IS a wedding dress), but not so fancy that they charge us out the yinyang for a few steamed asparagus sticks and an inch-square of chicken.
Am I asking too much, or are there recommendations that can be made?
