i could cry!!!!!

i have found my perfect venue

but it is totally out of my financial league just because they do not allow outside catering!

was gonna call in a few family favours as we used to run a cafe so i know really good (cheap) suppliers and everything but i am not allowed its the old health and safty jip " we have to be sure it was prepared properly"

b****r!

with their food it'd cost about 6500
if we shave a few people off of the guest list we might be able to get it down to about 4000

totally stuck!!!

Help!!

aw hun we found a venue last yr that was perfect in every possible way apart from the price tag. They also didnt allow outside caterers or dj etc (although funnily enough ive hired their dj LOL) and it hit the 6k mark without extras added so we had to look else where.
