I am having my AHR in August. I am having a really hard time finding an affordable location. Do any of you have any suggestions? I will have around 250 guests. We will be providing alcohol and our own catering. We plan to have a DJ and AC will be a must in August. TIA!!!

Have you looked at KTN Ballroom in Duluth? My sister had her reception there about 2 years ago and she was able to bring in her own caterer, alcohol, and bartenders. Its the Korean Television Network building so it's in an office park, but inside is really nice. She had about 200 guests and the place was more than enough space.

I just checked. They are crazy expensive. Thanks for your help though!

Inflation I guess! I think they were just starting to do weddings when she used them so she probably got in before their prices got crazy. There is another place in Duluth, let me see if I can find the name of it and I'll hit ya back.

This is one of the issues I have been going back and forth about. At this point, with the prices I've been given, I'm not even sure we are having a AHR! I'm not sure what 'affordable' is to you, but majority of the places I've contacted are waaaay out of our budget. lol

 

I'm not sure how formal you want your AHR to be. We are actually trying to do more of an informal, bbq type maybe. But my company actually has a small facility room they rent out, but its very informal, meaning no chandeliers or anything like that. But with the right decorations, the place looks pretty nice. I'll have to check and see what the capacity is though.

 

Also, I was looking at the clubhouse in the Anneewakee subdivision in Douglasville. Its actually a log cabin look. My FI loves it. I have to call and get the pricing on it.

 

Anyhow, here is a link I found this morning with various places in ATL: Wedding Places, Wedding Reception Halls in Atlanta, Georgia (GA)

The reason we decided to do a DW is b/c when I started looking at facilities in Atlanta I couldn't find any place that I liked that was going to end up less than 15k-20k with food, decorations, drinks, dj, etc. I gave up after about a month. So we are not doing an AHR. FIs family is not coming to the wedding, except his mom and a cousin, so they are throwing us some sort of cookout/party when we get back and then I think we will also have a party at our house for everyone else. It will be a housewarming/wedding celebration type thing.

Thanks for your help!! We have been looking for a community center or something similar. We want something very casual, but we want alchol and a dj, so that ruled out a lot of those places. Finding a place for 200-250 is tough too. The community centers are $300 or less for the entire day for most places. I hope I find something!!! I don't want this to be too expensive. I would host it at my house if I could, but I don't know where I would put all those people or cars.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
