Ok, I got engaged about 3 months ago..I live in north/central nj and I have already looked at about 12 places in the past month. We wanted to have a beach/water view and 10 were just not my idea where I wanted to get married, ugly dropped ceilings, or conference room feeling, which I do not want. The other 2 were outrageous. I am sorry, but I don't want to pay over $200 for 200+ people that I am having! I should be able to find an awesome place for like $175 including tax and gratuities. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?!? I am willing to forget about a beach view if the place is really nice and a good price. Thanks!
