With a family of 6 we are looking for a reception hall that is a are budget. When plannig a DIY wedding I still would like to have the feel of an up scale wedding. If any one has any ideas for a reception hall please feel free to drop me a email, please remember BUDGET is our key word no more then two thousand dollars please.
Cairnwood was under the $2,000 if you are willing to do a weekday (was about $1,600 in 2009), and it is definitely upscale. To keep the budget down maybe consider not putting up a tent, so have the whole party in the house. For dining a party of no more than 75 that works, for more you'd have to split up the dining into separate rooms or do stations (which can be fun).
