The Question What are great inexpensive wedding spaces in GR?

A few things to remember: 

  • Couples should pay attention to parking and handicap accessibility. Folks too frequently forget those factors, and sometimes that’s what cheap means – no parking, not accessible. and sometimes
  • utilizing a DIY space ends up resulting in hidden costs, table and chair rental etc.

I love the fact that the Facebook hivemind can be used to share personal experiences and resources. Sometimes I ask a question because I don’t know the answer, want to hear what my community has to say and lately I have been receiving requests from friends asking me to request very specific resources. The responses are generally useful but they get lost in the traffic of facebook so I thought they would be worth saving.
