Hi, I am getting married one year from now and I am trying to choose between two different reception sites. My father said he would pay for all of the reception because we are still in school. I want a nice wedding but I don’t want to hurt my dad financially. One is a country club $67 a person. This pays for a two course dinner, hors d’ oeuvres, cake and five hours of soda, beer, wine and well drinks. The other location is equally as nice but it’s a restaurant with a private room $44 per person. This location pays for dinner and hors d’ oeuvres but no cake and no drinks. It will be a small wedding with 125 people. The first place comes out to about $10,000 that’s with tax and tip. The other location comes out to $6,000. If anyone has any advice it would greatly be appreciated. I need to tell my mother within a few days. My fiancé says whatever I want is fine with him since they are both very
