I am now considering getting married in 2011, June, July or August, in Maryland, either the Eastern Shore, or Baltimore Inner Harbor.
My daughter and step-daughter will serve as my bridesmaids. I am not sure who will serve on the groom side. But we want a small wedding party.
I would like to have the ceremony and reception at the same location. Either two different rooms or same room with redecoration/re-organization. Also:
Live band for two hours (between cocktail and early reception for my (very) Christian family)
A DJ for the remainder of the reception
Top shelf liquor to be served during the DJ portion of the reception.
I am sure I am missing a lot here. But I'm looking at hotels that offer in-house catering and "preferred" vendors.
I'm a travel agent so I have a handle on the honeymoon. We chose not to do a destination wedding because our parents are aging.
Please advise...how much should I expect to spend? I have over a year to plan, I just need to know how much should I expect to pay. We are a 30-something couple with "real-life" financial obligations.Thanks!
