I cater in the Tampa Bay area, but I need lots of information about planning our daughter's wedding (under 80 guests) in the Media area. We probably could not go the Country Club route, since we are retired and need to budget. Ideally, we would prefer to spend a few weeks in the area and do much of the prep ourselves, with the family's help. We would like to rent something-- a hall, pavillion, fraternal facility, spacious home/yard/big tent, meeting room, anything where we could get creative, perhaps BBQ and provide a lot of the food, floral arrangements, and special touches ourselves. In making our decision, your advice and information about possible sites/venues, hotels, country clubs, and restaurants in the area would be appreciated. Are there quaint chapels within the area? We are starting our plans from the very beginning and have little knowledge of the area. Any illuminating advice would be greatly appreciated. Hope this topic is ok for the FORUM. Thanks!
