Hello everybody I really need help!!! i am looking for a banquest hall where i can have our wedding and reception. i want to have my own food and wine. i really want something elegant that will hold up tp 150 people. PLease help!!!
Look at Cottage on the Creek! It's on Shem Creek and Emily is so awesome to work with. I just booked it for Nov 12, 2010. Let me know if you need her contact information. Please tell her Christy sent you!
Also, Alhambra Hall is another good choice! I don't know if they have much open for next year.
I think my sister had her engagement party at Cottage on the Creek and it was so lovely. And Hibernian Hall was my first choice for a venue. Also look into Charleston Place, Legare Waring, any of the plantations, and the Thomas Bennett House (this is where I would get married if I could do it over again!)
We used South Carolina Society Hall. You can reach Skip at 843 723 9032. It is very elegant, and you can use your own food. We had a hard time keeping food affordable, and considered doing it ourselves, but got a good deal from "The Caterer" and they did an excellent job. I highly recommend him. Reach Ross Andrews (the chef) or Bryson Hills (his planning manager, a her) at 843 769 7446.
I was SUPER worried about space because we invited 300, but most were out of town. I was petrified they would all show up! We had about 130, with a heavy hors d'oerves cocktail reception. We left chairs around the edges, and I purchased 6 end tables off overstock.com that served as little cocktail tables so people had a place to sit and put their food down. We kept the food stations small and well distributed thru the room to keep "traffic" flowing, and then removed them later when the dancing began. We had MORE than enough room - it actually felt a little empty at the end!
