Well, just got engaged and now comes the hard part of planning for THE DAY.
I don't know if my post is in the right board, if not, let me know and I'll repost.
Anyway, we are forking out the money out of pocket and we would like not to have to mortgage our future for this one day.
We are anticipating 200 guests, our options
1. Chinese style banquet, plus, lots of food and generally reasonably prices. negative: too loud
2. "western" style banquest, plus, not as loud, seems more "elegant/classy" plus could be pricey.
I would appreciate any advice out from chowhounds who've had prior experience. Any recs would be appreciated. By the way, anyone had a band at their wedding? How was the experience?
