Mexico Wedding May Change to East Coast Wedding= Help?!?!
Posted 20 June 2010 - 02:42 PM
You may not know me because I was mainly focused on (with tunnel vision) on a Moon Palace resort wedding. After talking with family (the A listers) I don't think they can afford the trip and we can't afford to pay for them. Sooo I am trying to get some secondary ideas. We are from Pittsburgh and are trying to find some great ideas for an East Coast wedding...maybe Nags Head area or out skirts or Deep Creek. I am so lost now. Our budget is about 10k. I am the frugal one and don't want to do much more than that. Our guest list is undecided...maybe 100. Any ideas will help? Thanks!

Outer Banks Wedding Association This may help.
We are planning an OuterBanks wedding also but much smaller- under 25 people. I think if you plan your wedding in the off-peak season you can probably keep it in your budget. The problem I have is there are 4 kids and one school employee that can't come during off peek so we are cutting back a bit. Good luck!

Knowing this info, we had to first figure out how much we could afford a plate and then go from there. I think the maximum we can do is about $85-90 a plate. You still have to factor in taxes and gratuity to come up with the final number for the venue. To cut down on costs you can have your wedding on a Thursday, Friday or Sunday. I hope this helps. I know it is really tough. I wanted to be married in the St. Vincent and the Grenadines on the beach at my aunt's house. But because of the same situation you're in I'm settled for Cape May. It's beautiful so I'm content I guess.
Aisha, if you haven't signed any contracts yet, have you looked at Bridgewater Manor?
It's a pretty facility with outside ceremony space with a man-made pond. The food is incredibly good (the best i've tasted in NJ) and their prices can't be beat!!
If you can have your date on a Friday or Sunday (think memorial day or labor day weekend) they can accomodate your number of guests. The rooms are nice and again their prices are awesome for jersey!! They have prices at $62 per person WITH taxes and gratuity!!
Central New Jersey Catering Facility | The Bridgewater Manor
they allow you to eat at their restaurant for a food tasting. 3 courses. you just gotta pay for your own drinks without signing a contract. it's worth checking out!
