Ask Liz: When Regional Wedding Costs Attack! (Los Angeles Wedding Planner)

Taken from my advice column on The Broke-Ass Bride:

Dear Liz, 
I  saw your Huffpost live interview and was drawn to the name "broke ass bride" as that is what myself and my partner are, broke ass brides! We live in Brooklyn, NY and want to get married in NYC. Our wedding is set for September 2014 and the planning is in full swing. BUT my Dad is unable to pay and the two of us make just enough to live in NYC. We want to have 150 people at an outdoor venue, great food, music, and drinks! We have no idea how we are going to make this happen, especially since I  got an email from a beautiful venue in Brooklyn that starts at $315 a person! Are they insane?? We do have our eyes set on an inexpensive venue upstate , but our concern is that it's a raw space, we do not know the area, what about vendors? We are nervous that we are going to have to call the whole thing off because we don't have enough money. I have considered having our wedding sponsored, too. How does that work? Is that possible?

Broke in NYC

Dear Liz, 
My biggest challenge is finding an affordable venue. I keep going back to a Community Center, but it's not what I'd like. Help!
