weddings at metropolitan building? or other suggestions...

dknylic | Nov 19, 2003 10:20 AM

My fiance and I want to have a small (50 people) Sunday afternoon wedding next May. We looked at the Metropolitan Building in LIC and loved it, but the woman who runs it has been fairly squirmy on details--she doesn't like to put anything in writing. She quoted me an all-inclusive price and agreed to work with a friend of mine who's a caterer, but my friend just called upset b/c the woman won't even give HER specifics about how much $$ is allocated for food, etc. Anybody have experience w/this place? Most of the posts about it seem fairly old.

If not, I'd love other suggestions! We're on a very tight budget, are open to non-traditional venues, and would really like to use my friend as the caterer. Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens...
