wedding help from the DC/Maryland folk

this might be a long shot but i wanted to throw it out there.
my bff is getting married next year with a 20k total budget. her family squashed the DW idea, so she somehow has to do it all on this 20k budget. i know 20k would hardly get me anywhere in nj, so she is really struggling with being right outside of DC where everything is pricier.
has anyone been to a wedding in the silver spring/chevy chase/bethesda area that seemed like it was on a reasonable budget? a park? restaurant?
any ideas would be appreciated.

It's not that expensive to rent and has a really nice garden area with steps leading down, which I thought was a beautiful entrance for the bride. They have a lot of weddings there. The only thing I didn't like about the mansion was that inside their isn't one big area for a big group to sit down and eat, like a banquet room. But one feature I liked was that they have an art gallery or something like that upstairs that they will open for a while during your time there which I thought would be interesting for the guests. I know it's not one of the cities you named but Rockville isn't far from those places.

My sister's love this place, I personally haven't been though. My sister went there for some kind of banquet and she said it's like they bring food out non-stop. Her friend went there also, different event, but she said the same thing, they bring out so much food. So it is definitely a good value. There is one in Chevy Chase, I believe. I think they may have a room for ceremonies too, but I'm not positive. Tell your friend, good luck and 20,000 is plenty to have a nice wedding in this area.
I think as long as your friend stays away from having her ceremony/reception at a hotel then she should be able to swing 20k. For some reason hotels get you on every little thing!
