Hoping Chowhounders can help me out...
Man and I are getting married this fall/ early winter. Investigating options and a venue rental + caterer + band + flowers, etc is starting to stress us and our budget out. We're not the wedding banquet hall types. We're both artists so looking for something unique, fun, maybe a little quirky. Thinking of keeping it simple so we can have funds leftover for a honeymoon. So now investigating doing ceremony in CP followed by reception at a restaurant.
Does anyone have restaurant suggestions that can hold 150 to 175 people in Manhattan, Astoria or Long Island City? We would love to get a band so something that can also accommodate some sort of dance floor.
It doesn't have to be within walking distance of CP. Something with outdoor space or nice views is a plus.
