I am currently planning a destination wedding in New England and having a very difficult time finding what I want for what I can afford. My budget is about $50,000 however, I would like to stay below that. This past weekend, I visited Newport and found that I could not get what I wanted for that amount.
I am very particular with what I want. Our guest list is approximately 120-150 people. I want a venue that is close enough to a hotel that I do not have to worry about transportation for all of the guests. I also want to make sure I can customize my menu and have an amazing NY style cocktail hour, that will leave my guests nearly full. Of course, I also want a sit down dinner but it does not have to be top of the line since the cocktail hour will be great. Also, I am hoping to get married outside and have a tent for the reception or something comprable.
Does anyone have any ideas that would help me out. I am really having a tough time with this.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
