We are trying to plan a wedding for December 2009 and would love to have it in Manhattan, but not at one of the 'wedding factories' (catering halls), as my fiance calls them.
We are probably going to invite about 120 people. GREAT food is a must, but we do not want to spend $400 a person. We would appreciate any suggestions, ideas, advice!
Also, we would be open to having the wedding in Brooklyn or the Hudson valley too, so if anyone has ideas of places upstate, we would appreciate that as well.
