Really need some advice. We are getting married in 2019 abroad, just the two of us. When we get back we are wanting a small reception for close family, probably 50. Problem I'm having is we have a limited budget. H2b wants either a sit down meal with a live band, no disco. I fancy both. Also finding somewhere who will accommodate this. I'm finding because we only want an early Evening venue most venues aren't interested as it's not a full wedding package. We are in Nottinghamshire.

Totally agree with Lucy, don’t tell them it’s a wedding!
Chances are you’ll get it cheaper too!
Ask for quotes for a family celebration and give the times you’re after.
Best of luck x x

I'm sure a venue somewhere will accommodate this as my sister did something simular for around 30 people with a 3 course sit down meal in a hotel for around £300 :) . Good luck!

Hi, tell them it's a party and they should have function options, we did that for the evening do and as we were having a buffet I asked them to waive the hire charges, they were more than happy to do this. You could Also consider different options instead of sit down meal, we are doing afternoon tea and saving loads x
